Topics from this paper

Tarantulas and social spiders : a tale of sex and silk
TLDR
Previous common conceptions of dimensional morphologies were examined to see if they could adequately sex theraphosid spiders, including the species that was the subject of the silk study already described. Expand
The Nucleic Acids
on the 50th anniversary of the discovery of the DNA double helix COVER IMAGE shows a DNA ligand in complex with a specific DNA sequence that is selectively targeted by this ligand. The design wasExpand
The variable mitochondrial genome of ascomycetes: organization, mutational alterations, and expression.
TLDR
This chapter illustrates that the present knowledge of the mitochondria1 (mt) genome is mainly based on two efforts: the complete sequencing of the human mt genome and the establishment of a genetic mapping system because of the various mt mutants in Saccharomyces cereuisiae. Expand
Genetics of Microbes
Molecular Genetics of Yeast
TLDR
This chapter will discuss the mapping of the mitochondrial genome and the discovery of intervening sequences in genes in yeast, and an account of transformation in yeast will be given. Expand
Phylogeny of transfer RNA and origins of organelles
TLDR
Using nucleotide sequences of transfer RNA's, the endosymbiotic model for the origin of chloroplasts and mitochondria is examined and it is proposed that the classical taxonomy of fungi should be reconsidered in terms of molecular taxonomy or molecular paleontology. Expand
Short-Term Tests for Chemical Carcinogens
  • H. Stich, R. San

  • Topics in Environmental Physiology and Medicine
  • 1981
The recent surge of interest in designing, validating, and implementing short-term tests for carcinogens has been spurred by the fairly convincing correlation be tween the carcinogenicity andExpand
THE LOCKED‐CELL HYPOTHESIS. ON THE ORIGIN OF MITOCHONDRIA AND THE TRANSITION FROM PROKARYOTIC TO EUKARYOTIC CELLS
  • E. Keyhani
  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences
  • 1981
TLDR
The symbiont progressively transferred most of its genetic information into host cells during the course of evolution, and so evolved to the present-day status of mitochondria, chloroplast, or flagellum in eukaryotic cells. Expand
An endonuclease from yeast mitochondrial fractions.
TLDR
After mild digestion of DNA, analysis of 5'-end groups of the digestion products indicated a marked preference for deoxythymidylic and deoxyguanilic acid residues as the site of enzymatic cleavage. Expand

The organization of gene in yeast mitochondrial DNA
TLDR
Three independent physical maps of the mtDNAs from three different wild-type Saccharomyces strains are constructed by double-digestion analysis and hybridization analysis, using restriction endonucleases EcoRI, HindII, HindIII, PstI, BamHI, Aval, HhaI, SalI and XhoI. Expand
An insert in the single gene for the large ribosomal RNA in yeast mitochondrial DNA
TLDR
By electron microscopy of RNA–DNA hybrids, this work presents direct evidence for an insertion in the ribosomal RNAs used in mitochondrial protein synthesis and for a limited number of proteins of the mitochondrial inner membrane. Expand
The mitochondrial genome of wild-type yeast cells. VII. Recombination in crosses.
TLDR
The results provide the first evidence for physical recombinations of mitochondrial DNA in crosses of wild-type yeast cells, indicate that recombination is very frequent in crosses, and shed some light on mitochondrial segregation. Expand
Assembly of the mitochondrial membrane system: isolation of nuclear and cytoplasmic mutants of Saccharomyces cerevisiae with specific defects in mitochondrial functions
TLDR
A selection procedure is described which permits a large number of Saccharomyces cerevisiae mutants to be screened for specific lesions in mitochondrial respiratory enzymes and the adenosine triphosphatase and two cytoplasmic mutants have been found whose primary defect is in cytochrome oxidase. Expand
The mitochondrial genome of wild-type yeast cells. IV. Genes and spacers.
TLDR
The organization of the mitochondrial genome of wild-type Saccharomyces cerevisiae cells has been investigated further, by degrading mitochondrial DNA with micrococcal nuclease, and it has been shown that genes and spacers are present in about equal amounts in the mitochondria. Expand
