Cloning and sequencing ofpushover, a Drosophila gene affecting neuronal activity and glial morphology
pushover (push) is a mutation that causes neuronal hyperexcitability, uncoordination and male sterility. Here it is also shown that push mutant wandering third instar larvae exhibit segmental nerves that are slightly ...
Characterization of androcam: A novel calcium-binding protein and a close relative of calmodulin from Drosophila melanogaster
The Androcam gene was originally isolated by Fyrberg et al. (1994), using reduced stringency cDNA library screening with a calmodulin (CaM) probe from our lab. The derived protein sequence of the new gene is 85% similar ...
Hypertonic shock and the cell cycle: Identification of a stress-induced G2 delay in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Exposure of S. cerevisiae cells to an increase in external osmolarity induces a temporary growth arrest. Recovery from this stress is mediated by the accumulation of intracellular glycerol and the transcription of several ...
Characterization of Arabidopsis thaliana mutants defetive in auxin metabolism
Auxins are an important class of phytohormones that play a critical role in various aspects of plant growth and development such as cell elongation, cell division, apical dominance, tropisms, and fruit ripening. The most ...
Characterization of the currents underlying rhythmic firing in mammalian dopaminergic neurons
A mathematical model of midbrain dopamine neurons has been developed in order to understand the mechanisms underlying two types of calcium-dependent firing patterns that these cells exhibit in vitro. The first is the ...
Metabolism of acetoin in Clostridium acetobutylicum ATCC 824
Acetoin is a product of fermentation by C. acetobutylicum, and a component of several natural and artificial flavors, including butter flavor. Acetolactate synthase (ALS) catalyzes the production of acetolactate from ...
