Appressorium formation in response to topographical signals by 27 rust species.
- E. Allen, B. E. Hazen, B. T. Terhune
The formation of urediniospore appressoria in response to micro-fabricated topographies was observed for 27 species of rust fungi representing eight genera, and a broader range of ridge heights was observed to be inductive for appressorium formation.

An affinity column for isolating Z-DNA binding proteins was made by attaching brominated poly(dG-dC) to Sephadex and it was found that the eluted proteins bind to B-DNA but not to native or denatured E. coli or calf thymus DNA, or bromination oligonucleotides.

Results suggest that cysteine itself is an important cellular signal for upregulation of CDO and downregulation of GCS.
Post-transcriptional regulation of cysteine dioxygenase in rat liver.

Preliminary studies indicate that the polysome profile for association of CDO mRNA with polysomes is not altered by an increase in dietary protein level, suggesting that regulation may be posttranslational and possibly involve a decrease in the rate ofCDO degradation.

Two mutants (LE1 and LE2) of the plant pathogenic fungus Nectria haematococca with macroconidia with reduced ability to adhere (Att) to zucchini fruits and polystyrene are isolated.
A Consideration on the Pollen Morphology of Walnut Trees (Juglans spp.) by Using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM)
Pollen grains of walnuts were mixed subprolate and prolate in equatorial view; showed more or less periporate than 15 pores in aperture type; were mainly PL and PL and ED ratio in morphological characters of principle component.
Variations in dietary protein but not in dietary fat plus cellulose or carbohydrate levels affect cysteine metabolism in rat isolated hepatocytes.

Regulation of the activities of enzymes involved in cysteine metabolism is predominantly due to changes in dietary protein intake and not to the associated changes in intake of other dietary macronutrients.

It is suggested that MARE produces more cytotoxicity in cancer cells while having a relatively attenuated effect on normal cells, and may be a safer option in cancer therapeutics, and it also shows potential for the patients with symptoms of hyperglycemia and cancer.
Cysteine metabolism in periportal and perivenous hepatocytes: Perivenous cells have greater capacity for glutathione production and taurine synthesis but not for cysteine catabolism
- D. L. Bella, L. Hirschberger, Y. Kwon, M. Stipanuk
- Biology, MedicineAmino Acids
Cysteinesulfnate decarboxylase can be added to the list of enzymes whose activities are markedly enriched in perivenous cells, consistent with the observation of similar cysteine dioxygenase activity across the hepatic acinus.
