Mercury reduction and methyl mercury degradation by the soil bacterium Xanthobacter autotrophicus Py2.
Worcester, United States. In Appl Environ Microbiol, 04 Oct 2015
These operons, mer1 and mer2, contain two features which are commonly found in mer operons in the genomes of soil and marine Alphaproteobacteria, but are not present in previously characterized mer operons: a gene for the mercuric reductase (MerA) that encodes an alkylmercury lyase domain typical of those found on the MerB protein, and the presence of an additional gene, which we are calling merK, with homology to glutathione reductase.
PRRS virus receptors and their role for pathogenesis.
Urbana, United States. In Vet Microbiol, Jul 2015
At least six cellular molecules have been described so far as putative receptors for PRRSV, and they include heparan sulfate, vimentin, CD151, sialoadhesin (CD169; siglec-1), dendritic cell-specific intercellular adhesion melecule-3-grabbing non-integrin (DC-SIGN; CD209), and CD163 (SRCR, cysteine-rich scavenger receptor).
CD151-A Striking Marker for Cancer Therapy.
Vishākhapatnam, India. In Biomark Cancer, Dec 2014
Cluster of differentiation 151 (CD151) is a member of the mammalian tetraspanin family, which is involved in diverse functions such as maintaining normal cellular integrity, cell-to-cell communication, wound healing, platelet aggregation, trafficking, cell motility and angiogenesis.
Raph blood group system.
Johnstown, United States. In Immunohematology, 2013
This review describes the current state of knowledge of the Raph blood group system, which consists of a single antigen, MER2.
Meiosis-specific RNA splicing in yeast.
New Haven, United States. In Cell, 1991
The MER2 gene is transcribed in mitosis as well as meiosis; however, the transcript is spliced efficiently to generate a functional gene product only in meiosis.
