Homozygous mutations of this gene in the mouse cause anemia, infertility, and albinism, whereas heterozygous mutant mice usually exhibit only a white forehead blaze and depigmentation of the ventral body, tail, and feet.

The design, synthesis, and characterization of novel linear and cross-linked supramolecular polymers that are easily available from biologically friendly lysine peptides and carbon dioxide (CO2) are reported here. Polymeric structures 5, 6, and 19 readily form from peptides 2, 3, and 15, respectively, at ambient temperatures by simply bubbling CO2 through(More)
