76 Gesteland, Raymond F.Cell-free synthesis of herpes simplex virus proteinsPolyribosomes isolated from herpes simplex virus type I (HSV-1)-infected cells have been used to program a eucaryotic cell-free translation system. At least 10 HSV-specific polypeptides, with apparent molecular weights of 25,000 to 160,000, are synthesized by wild-type HSV-infected polyribosomes. Po...Viral Proteins; Herpes Simplex; Peptide Biosynthesis; Thymidine Kinase1977
77 Bastiani, MichaelCentral projections of the stretch receptor neurons of crayfish: segmental gradients of synaptic probability and strengthThe 20 stretch receptor neurons (SRs) of the crayfish abdomen send axons into the CNS that then project both to the brain and to the last abdominal ganglion, G6 (Bastiani and Mulloney, 1988). In G6, we recorded intracellularly from different kinds of neurons postsynaptic to SR axons.Axons; Synapses; SR1988
78 Bastiani, MichaelCentral projections of the stretch receptor neurons of crayfish: structure, variation, and postembryonic growthEach stretch receptor neuron (SR) of the crayfish abdomen projects from its peripherally located soma an axon that enters the CNS through the second nerve (N2) of its segmental ganglion. CoZ+ backfills of N2 revealed that this axon bifurcates, sending one branch to the brain and the other to the te...Abdomen; Axon; Ganglion1988
79 Gesteland, Raymond F.Characterization of lysozyme messenger and lysozyme synthesized in vitroIn vitro systems for protein systhesis have been in wide use for about 10 years. In most of the early work protein synthesis was measured by following the incorporation of radioactive amino acids into acid precipitable material. This test cannot distinguish between the synthesis of complete, activ...Lysozyme Messenger; Lysozyme Synthesized; Protein Synthesis1969
80 Beckerle, Mary C.Characterization of the interaction between zyxin and members of the Ena/Vasodilator-stimulated Phosphoprotein family of proteinsZyxin contains a proline-rich N-terminal domain that is similar to the C-terminal domain in the ActA protein of the bacteria, Listeria monocytogenes. We screened the entire amino acid sequence of human zyxin for Menainteracting peptides and found that, as with ActA, proline-rich sequences were the s...Zyxin; Actin; Listeria monocytogenes; Proline-rich repeats; Cell spreading2000
81 Capecchi, Mario R.Characterization of three proteins involved in polypeptide chain termination.At each stage of elongation, the growing polypeptide chain is bound to the ribosome-messenger RNA complex through the transfer RNA of the most recently incorporated amino acid residue. When the chain is complete, the last polypeptide-transfer RNA (tuna) ester linkage is cleaved, releasing the chain ...Anti-Bacterial Agents; Phenylalanine; Stimulation, Chemical1969
82 Coley, Phyllis D.Chemical and bioactive natural products from microthyriaceae sp., an endophytic fungus from a tropical grassIn screening for natural products with antiparasitic activity, an endophytic fungus, strain F2611, isolated from above-ground tissue of the tropical grass Paspalum conjugatum (Poaceae) in Panama, was chosen for bioactive principle elucidation. Cultivation on malt extract agar (MEA) followed by bioas...2014-01-01
83 Blair, David F.Chemical and spectroscopic evidence for the formation of a ferryl Fea3 intermediate during turnover of cytochrome c oxidaseWhen partially reduced cytochrome c oxidase samples are reoxidized with dioxygen, an EPR-silent dioxygen intermediate, which is at the three-electron level of dioxygen reduction, is trapped at the dioxygen reduction site. The intermediate has novel spectral features at 580 and 537 nm. Combined op...Cytochrome c oxidase; EPR; Fea3 intermediate; Reduction1986

There are 465 bird species so far recorded in Turkey and the actual total is likely to exceed 500 species. However, the chewing lice fauna of th...2010-01-01
87 Bohs, Lynn A.Chloroplast DNA phylogeny of Solanum sect on Las ocarpaSolanum section Lasiocarpa includes about a dozen species with a center of diversity in the NewWorld tropics.

88 Capecchi, Mario R.Choose your target.The technology of modifying endogenous genes has recently been extended from mice to Drosophila and sheep. Concurrently, genomic sequencing is uncovering thousands of previously uncharacterized genes. Armed with today's technologies, what are our best options for delineating the functions of these n...Animals; Mice; Sheep2000-09-13
89 Capecchi, Mario R.Cleft palate in mice with a targeted mutation in the gamma-aminobutyric acid-producing enzyme glutamic acid decarboxylase 67.The functions of neurotransmitters in fetal development are poorly understood. Genetic observations have suggested a role for the inhibitory amino acid neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the normal development of the mouse palate. Mice homozygous for mutations in the beta-3 GABAA rec...Animals, Newborn; Crosses, Genetic1997-10-14
90 Yamaguchi, AyakoCoding rate and duration of vocalizations of the frog , Xenopus laevisVocalizations involve complex rhythmic motor patterns, but the underlying temporal coding mechanisms in the nervous system are poorly understood. Using a recently developed whole-brain preparation from which "fictive" vocalizations are readily elicited in vitro, we investigated the cellular basis of...2012-08-29
91 Clayton, Dale H.Coevolutionary history of ecological replicates: comparing phylogenies of wing and body lice to Columbiform hostsPhylogenies depict the history of speciation for groups of organisms. Comparing the phylogenies of interacting groups can reveal instances of tandem speciation, or "cospeciation" (Brooks and McLennan, 1991; Hoberg et al., 1997; Paterson and Gray, 1997). Understanding the conditions under which cosp...Feather lice; Wing lice; Body lice; Cospeciation2003
92 Coley, Phyllis D.Coibanoles, a new class of meroterpeniods produced by pycnoporus sanguineusThree new terpenoids of mixed biosynthetic origin were isolated from the culture filtrate of the endophytic fungus Pycnoporus sanguineus. Their structures were determined by extensive spectroscopic analyses. We have named these tricyclic and tetracyclic metabolites ?coibanoles A?C? in reference to...2012
93 Coley, Phyllis D.; Kursar, Thomas A.Colonization of tropical rain forest leaves by epiphylls: effects of site and host plant leaf lifetimeIn humid tropical regions, leaves are frequently colonized by epiphylls (Richards 1954, Pocs 1978, 1982). Lichens and liverworts usually dominate, although mosses, algae, and cyanobacteria can also occur (Winkler 1971, Smith 1982). The interactions between epiphylls and host leaves have not been wel...Tropical forest; Epiphylls; Panama; Hybanthus prunifolius; Light interception1993
94 Olivera, Baldomero M.Combined proteomic and transcriptomic interrogation of the venom gland of conus geographus uncovers novel components and functional compartmentalizationCone snails are highly successful marine predators that use complex venoms to capture prey. At any given time, hundreds of toxins (conotoxins) are synthesized in the secretory epithelial cells of the venom gland, a long and convoluted organ that can measure 4 times the length of the snail's body. In...2014-01-01
95 Clayton, Dale H.Common grackle anting with lime fruit and its effect on ectoparasitesAnting is stereotyped behavior in which birds ex- pose themselves to fluid-secreting ants or other pun- gent substances. During "active" anting a bird crush- es an ant in the bill and rubs it frenetically through its plumage (Rothschild and Clay 1952). During "passive" anting a bird entices ants to ...Quiscalus quiscala; Columbicola columbae; Anting; Ectoparasites1993
96 Clayton, Dale H.Comparative effects of mites and lice on the reproductive success of rock doves (Columba livia)We report experimental data comparing the effects of Mesostigmatid mites and Ischnoceran lice on the reproductive performance of a single group of captive rock doves (Columba livid).

97 Davidson, Diane W.Comparative structure of harvester ant communities in arid Australia and North AmericaIn the Australian arid zone, the species richness of ants is greater and that of mammalian granivores is less than in North American deserts. This study aimed to determine if the structure of harvester ant communities differs from that seen in North American deserts, focussing on differences relate...Species; Rodents; Diversity1988
98 Clayton, Dale H.; Bush, Sarah ElizabethComparative transmission dynamics of competing parasite speciesCompetition-colonization trade-off models explain the coexistence of competing species in terms of a trade-off between competitive ability and the ability to colonize competitor-free patches of habitat. A simple prediction of these models is that inferior competitors will be superior dispersers.
