Abstract

SmaI is a short interspersed element (SINE) of the salmon genome, and is derived from tRNALys. We probed the secondary structure of SmaI SINE RNA by enzymatic cleavage and found that the RNA structure comprises three separate domains. The 5′-terminal region (the 5′ domain) forms a tRNA-like...

Abstract

The tradition of cockfighting is widespread throughout the world. There is no doubt that the gamecock has evolved together with the human culture of cockfighting for a long time. In Japan, there is a group of gamecocks called "Shamo" that are used specifically for cockfighting. However, the process ...

Abstract

Animal toxins comprise a diverse array of proteins that have a variety of biochemical and pharmacological functions. A large number of animal toxins are encoded by multigene families. From studies of several toxin multigene families at the gene level the picture is emerging that most have been...

Abstract

Plasmodium falciparum, the agent of human malignant malaria, diverged from Plasmodium reichenowi, the chimpanzee parasite, about the time the human and chimpanzee lineages diverged from each other. The absence of synonymous nucleotide variation at ten loci indicates that the world populations of P. ...
