Cloning and characterization of the rainbow trout (oncorhynchus mykiss) type ii interleukin-1 receptor cdna
A homologue of mammalian type II interleukin-1 receptor (IL-1RII) was isolated from a rainbow trout cDNA library by differential hybridization using a suppression subtractive hybridization generated probe enriched far ...
Micrornas as prognostic indicators and therapeutic targets: potential effect on breast cancer management
(American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), 2008-01-15)
The discovery of microRNAs (miRNA) as novel modulators of gene expression has resulted in a rapidly expanding repertoire of molecules in this family, as reflected in the concomitant expansion of scientific literature. ...
Evolution of astacin-like metalloproteases in animals and their function in development
Astacin-like metalloproteases are ubiquitous in the animal kingdom but their phylogenetic relationships and ancient functions within the Metazoa are unclear. We have cloned and characterized four astacin-like cDNAs from ...
Role of listeria monocytogenes b in survival of lethal acidic conditions and in the acquired acid tolerance response
(American Society for Microbiology, 2003-05-01)
The food-borne pathogen Listeria monocytogenes can acquire enhanced resistance to lethal acid conditions through multiple mechanisms. We investigated contributions of the stress-responsive alternative sigma factor, or ...
