Post-translational modifications of the N-terminal histone tails, including lysine methylation, have key roles in regulation of chromatin and gene expression. A number of protein modules have been identified that recognize differentially modified histone tails and provide their proteins with the capacity to sense such modifications. Here, we identify the CW(More)
We developed a transient expression assay for Madagascar periwinkle (Catharanthus roseus [L.] G. Don.) that is based on vacuum infiltration of intact leaves with recombinantAgrobacterium tumefaciens. This simple and rapid technique was used to overexpresstryptophan decarboxylase (tdc) andstrictosidine synthase (str1) genes, which encode 2 key enzymes of the(More)
The AMPA type glutamate receptors mediate the majority of fast synaptic transmission in the vertebrate nervous system. Whereas mammals have four subunit genes, Gria1-4, zebrafish has retained a duplicated set of eight genes named gria1-4a and b. We give here a detailed overview of the expression patterns of all eight zebrafish subunits within the developing(More)
