The adult lung consists of a trachea leading into a system of branched airways ending in millions of alveolar sacs. It contains many different epithelial cell types arranged in precise patterns along the proximodistal axis. Each region of the lung has the capacity to repair through the proliferation of different epithelial cell types. However, the precise(More)
Utilizing a novel and rapid two-column purification procedure, the DNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RNAP) from the thermophile, Thermus thermophilus HB8, was purified to electrophoretic homogeneity with a recovery of 65% (as determined by RNAP activity) in less than 2 days. The purified enzyme was characterized using DNA containing the lambdaP(R) promoter.(More)
The PstICL1 gene, which encodes isocitrate lyase, a key enzyme in the glyoxylate cycle, was cloned and characterized in the biotrophic wheat pathogen Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici (Pst). Expression analyses of PstICL1 exhibited high levels of transcripts in ungerminated urediniospores, which showed low isocitrate lyase enzyme activity. In planta,(More)
