High Resolution Detection of Genetic Changes Associated with Transposons
Authors:  Beery Yaakov and Khalil Kashkush, date: 06/05/2013, view: 9092, Q&A: 0
Transposable elements (TEs) are repetitive sequences, capable of inducing genetic mutations through their transpositional activity, or by non-homologous or illegitimate recombination. Because of their similarity and often high copy numbers, ...
Detection of DNA Methylation Changes Surrounding Transposable Elements
Authors:  Beery Yaakov and Khalil Kashkush, date: 06/05/2013, view: 10241, Q&A: 0
Transposable elements (TEs) are a major component of all genomes, thus the epigenetic mechanisms controlling their activity is an important field of study. Cytosine methylation is one of the factors regulating the transcription and transposition of ...

Isolation of Tomato Fruit Chromoplasts and Determination of ATP Levels
It has recently been reported that tomato fruit chromoplasts can synthesize ATP de novo using an ATP synthase complex harboring an atypical γ-subunit which is also present in a variety of plant species. However many aspects related with the ...
