Analysis of the mouse transcriptome based on functional annotation of 60,770 full-length cDNAs
Only a small proportion of the mouse genome is transcribed into mature messenger RNA transcripts. There is an international collaborative effort to identify all full-length mRNA transcripts from theExpand

Evolution of bioluminescence in marine planktonic copepods.
Copepods are the dominant taxa in zooplankton communities of the ocean worldwide. Although bioluminescence of certain copepods has been known for more than a 100 years, there is very limitedExpand

A novel yellowish-green fluorescent protein from the marine copepod, Chiridius poppei, and its use as a reporter protein in HeLa cells.
A crustacean gene, encoding for a new class of GFP-like protein, has been isolated from a cDNA library of the deep-sea (benthic) copepod crustacean, Chiridius poppei, by expression cloning. The cDNAExpand

Computational analysis and functional expression of ancestral copepod luciferase.
We recently reported the cDNA sequences of 11 copepod luciferases from the superfamily Augaptiloidea in the order Calanoida. They were classified into two groups, Metridinidae andExpand

Two forms of secreted and thermostable luciferases from the marine copepod crustacean, Metridia pacifica.
We cloned two forms of the secreted and thermostable luciferase genes, MpLuc1 and MpLuc2, from the marine copepod, Metridia pacifica. The 840-bp MpLuc1 cDNA comprised a 630-bp open reading frameExpand

Cloning, expression, and nucleotide sequence of the N-acyl-d-aspartate amidohydrolase gene from Alcaligenes xylosoxydans subsp. xylosoxydans A-6
Abstract The gene (termed daa) encoding N-acyl- d -aspartate ( d -Asp) amidohydrolase ( d -AAase) from the Alcaligenes xylosoxydans subsp. xylosoxydans (Alcaligenes A-6) was cloned in EscherichiaExpand

Structural basis for red‐shifted emission of a GFP‐like protein from the marine copepod Chiridius poppei
The fluorescence excitation and emission maxima of a GFP‐like protein from the marine copepod Chiridius poppei (CpYGFP) show a significant red shift (λex = 509 nm, λem = 517 nm) compared with thoseExpand

Chromatography of isoforms of recombinant apoaequorin and method for the preparation of aequorin.
Gradient elution chromatography of recombinant apoaequorin carried out in the presence of Ca2+ revealed two isoforms of apoaequorin, reduced and oxidized, whereas in the presence of EDTA 3 isoformsExpand

D-Amino acid production by E. coli co-expressed three genes encoding hydantoin racemase, D-hydantoinase and N-carbamoyl-D-amino acid amidohydrolase
Abstract Three genes respectively encoding d -specific hydantoinase (DHHase), N -carbamoyl- d -amino acid amidohydrolase (DCHase) and hydantoin racemase (HRase) were co-expressed in E. coli in aExpand
