Next-generation sequencing technologies have allowed the rapid determination of the complete genomes of many organisms. Although shotgun sequences from large genome organisms are still difficult to reconstruct perfect contigs each of which represents a full chromosome, those from small genomes have been assembled successfully into a very small number of contigs. In this study, we show that shotgun reads from phage genomes can be reconstructed into a single contig by controlling the number of read sequences used in de novo assembly...

Transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) influences the development of myocardiopathy in Chagas disease through regulation of (i) parasite invasion of heart cells, (ii) an intracellular parasite cycle, (iii) inflammation and immune response, (iv) heart fibrosis and remodeling, and (v) gap junction modulation and heart conduction. In this review, we discuss the rationale for developing TGF-β signaling-interfering therapies as adjuvant approaches for the management of the cardiac alterations of Chagas disease-affected patients...

Biological O(2) activation often occurs after binding to a reduced metal [e.g., M(II)] in an enzyme active site. Subsequent M(II)-to-O(2) electron transfer results in a reactive M(III)-superoxo species. For the extradiol aromatic ring-cleaving dioxygenases, we have proposed a different model where an electron is transferred from substrate to O(2) via the M(II) center to which they are both bound, thereby obviating the need for an integral change in metal redox state. This model is tested by using homoprotocatechuate 2,3-dioxygenases from Brevibacterium fuscum (Fe-HPCD) and Arthrobacter globiformis (Mn-MndD) that share high sequence identity and very similar structures...

In the central nervous system, regeneration of injured axons and sprouting of intact axons are suppressed by myelin-derived molecules that bind to the Nogo receptor (NgR). We used a soluble form of the NgR (sNgR), constructed as an IgG of the human NgR extracellular domain, to manipulate plasticity of uninjured primary afferent and descending monoaminergic projections to the rat spinal cord following dorsal rhizotomy. Rats with quadruple dorsal rhizotomies were treated with intrathecal sNgR or saline, or were left untreated for 2 weeks...

OBJECTIVE: Being based on the principle of Latham's appliance, this experiment is designed to detect activity of osteoblasts in the maxillary sutures of Wistar rats with bilateral artificial cleft palate by immunohistochemistry technique, and evaluate the effects of this appliance on the growth and development of the maxilla. METHODS: The animal models of male infant Wistar rats with bilateral cleft palate were made by removing some palatal bones, splitting a "V" gap of 1...

The ability of HeLa DNA polymerase alpha to utilize gapped PM2 DNAs for synthesis in a model base excision DNA repair scheme was examined. Partially depurinated PM2 DNA was incised on the 5' side of apurinic sites with HeLa apurinic/apyrimidinic endonuclease II, then the baseless sugar was removed and gaps of defined mean lengths were introduced at these sites by exonucleolytic digestion with HeLa DNase V. Gaps smaller than approximately 15 nucleotides did not serve as efficient primer-templates for DNA polymerase alpha...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase
