The serine/threonine kinase GSK-3β was initially described as a key enzyme involved in glucose metabolism, but it is now known to regulate a wide range of biological processes, including proliferation and apoptosis. We previously reported a transformation-dependent cell death induced by glucose limitation in K-ras-transformed NIH3T3. To address the(More)
Thirty anonymous DNA markers were investigated in Southern African Caucasoid, Negroid and San populations. Sixteen of these are new markers that were developed in our laboratory; the remainder are closely linked to the cystic fibrosis locus on chromosome 7. Average heterozygosity in the Caucasoid and Negroid populations was calculated at the loci identified(More)
Streptococcus thermophilus is a thermophilic lactic acid bacterium used as starter culture for the manufacture of fermented dairy products. For the production of Crescenza and other soft cheeses, Sacco has developed and provides dairies with three different defined blends of S. thermophilus strains.
