A cDNA clone from tomato fruit encodes a protein with strong homology with the rab11/YPT3 class of small GTPases that is thought to be involved in the control of protein trafficking within cells. The gene, LeRab11a, showed a pattern consistent with a single copy in DNA gel blots. The corresponding mRNA was developmentally regulated during fruit ripening,(More)
A full-length cDNA clone from mango (Mangifera indica L.) fruit has homology to the rab11/YPT3 class of small GTPases. The corresponding mRNA is expressed in fruit, only during ripening. The likely involvement of this RabX protein in trafficking cell-wall modifying enzymes through the trans-Golgi network is discussed.
Although case study methods remain a controversial approach to data collection, they are widely recognised in many social science studies especially when in-depth explanations of a social behaviour are sought after. This article, therefore, discusses several aspects of case studies as a research method. These include the design and categories of case(More)
A total of 90 cases of pneumococcal infections were identified at a major referral hospital in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia during a study period of four years. Pneumonia was the most common clinical presentation (41 cases) followed by meningitis (19 cases). Of 48 patients who were followed-up during the microbiology consultation round, 11 died, 9 were children(More)

This study seeks to identify and analyze errors by means of error analysis procedures in two types of writings. It looks at the types and patterns of errors in the two types of writings examined. They are the narrative and descriptive essays which students of the lower secondary schools are expected to write correctly and accurately. In this study,(More)
BACKGROUND Hev b 4 is an allergenic natural rubber latex (NRL) protein complex that is reactive in skin prick tests and in vitro immunoassays. On SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE), Hev b 4 is discerned predominantly at 53-55 kDa together with a 57 kDa minor component previously identified as a cyanogenic glucosidase. Of the 13 NRL allergens(More)
