Phytophthora aquimorbida sp nov and Phytophthora taxon 'aquatilis' recovered from irrigation reservoirs and a stream in Virginia, USA
(Mycological Society of America, 2012-04)
Two distinct subgroups (L2 and A(-2)) were recovered from irrigation reservoirs and a stream in Virginia, USA. After molecular, morphological and physiological examinations, the L2 subgroup was named Phytophthora aquimorbida ...
Control of mitochondrial metabolism and systemic energy homeostasis by microRNAs 378 and 378*
Obesity and metabolic syndrome are associated with mitochondrial dysfunction and deranged regulation of metabolic genes. Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ coactivator 1β (PGC-1β) is a transcriptional coactivator ...
Memory formation for trace fear conditioning requires ubiquitin-proteasome mediated protein degradation in the prefrontal cortex
The cellular mechanisms supporting plasticity during memory consolidation have been a subject of considerable interest. De novo protein and mRNA synthesis in several brain areas are critical, and more recently protein ...
Noncanonical Reactions of Flavoenzymes
Enzymes containing flavin cofactors are predominantly involved in redox reactions in numerous cellular processes where the protein environment modulates the chemical reactivity of the flavin to either transfer one or two ...
High-throughput Physical Mapping of Chromosomes using Automated in situ Hybridization
(Journal Of Visualized Experiments, 2012-06-01)
Projects to obtain whole-genome sequences for 10,000 vertebrate species and for 5,000 insect and related arthropod species are expected to take place over the next 5 years. For example, the sequencing of the genomes for ...
Sustainable agriculture undergraduate degree programs: A land-grant university mission
There has been considerable growth in the number undergraduate degree programs in sustainable agriculture (SA) in universities and colleges across the country in the past 25 years. As a subset of this national trend, ...
Activation of PAD4 in NET formation.
Peptidylarginine deiminases, or PADs, convert arginine residues to the non-ribosomally encoded amino acid citrulline in a variety of protein substrates. PAD4 is expressed in granulocytes and is essential for the formation ...
Chemical Mechanism of UDP-Galactopyranose Mutase from Trypanosoma cruzi: A Potential Drug Target against Chagas' Disease
UDP-galactopyranose mutase (UGM) is a flavoenzyme that catalyzes the conversion of UDP-galactopyranose to UDP-galactofuranose, the precursor of galactofuranose (Galf). Galf is found in several pathogenic organisms, including ...
Individual Variability of Nosema ceranae Infections in Apis mellifera Colonies
Since 2006, beekeepers have reported increased losses of Apis mellifera colonies, and one factor that has been potentially implicated in these losses is the microsporidian Nosema ceranae. Since N. ceranae is a fairly ...
First report of a mermithid nematode infecting Piezodorus guildinii and Acrosternum hilare (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) in the United States
(Florida Entomological Society, 2012-03)
