Azotobacter vinelandii was mutagenized with ethyl methanesulfonate, and colonies that did not produce the fluorescent yellow-green pigment that is characteristic of the wild type were selected. All 32 stable nonfluorescent mutants failed to secret...

Relationships between physico-chemical factors of waters, riparian vegetation, altitude and species richness of the hyphomycete communities in six rivers and a sulfur spring in the Western Ghats of Karnataka were analysed statistically. Linear reg...

Recently, p24A and p23 (also termed Tmp21), two members of the p24 protein family, have been proposed to function as integral receptors for the COPI-vesicle coat. This study describes the intracellular localization and trafficking of p24A in compa...

The Caco-2 cell line and its subclone TC7 are frequently used for studying human intestinal transport and metabolism of xenobiotics. We have investigated the expression of soluble sulfotransferases (SULT) in parental Caco-2 and TC7 cells by immuno...

Mature male rainbow trout have significantly higher relative ventricle masses (RVM, ventricle mass as a percentage of body mass) than do immature males or females. Hatchery-reared maturing male trout had a mean RVM of 0.139%, whereas females had a...
