The complete mitochondrial genome of Acanthosaura lepidogaster (Squamata: Agamidae).
Hangzhou, China. In Mitochondrial Dna, Jan 2016
We constructed a phylogeny that included for 10 species of Leiolepidinae lizards and one outgroup Leiocephalus personatus constructed in BEAST, based on 15 mitochondrial genes (12S, 16S, ND1, ND2, COI, COII, ATP8, ATP6, COIII, ND3, ND4L, ND4, ND5, ND6, and cytochrome b).
Melatonin as antioxidant, geroprotector and anticarcinogen.
Saint Petersburg, Russia. In Biochim Biophys Acta, 2006
Melatonin also increased the expression of some mitochondrial genes (16S, cytochrome c oxidases 1 and 3 (COX1 and COX3), and NADH dehydrogenases 1 and 4 (ND1 and ND4)), which agrees with its ability to inhibit free radical processes.
Bilobalide and neuroprotection.
United States. In Pharmacol Res, 2002
In vitro and ex vivo studies indicate that bilobalide has multiple mechanisms of action that may be associated with neuroprotection, including its preservation of mitochondrial ATP synthesis, its inhibition of apoptotic damage induced by staurosporine or by serum-free medium, its suppression of hypoxia-induced membrane deterioration in the brain, and its actions of increasing the expression of the mitochondrial DNA-encoded COX III subunit of cytochrome c oxidase and the ND1 subunit of NADH dehydrogenase.
RNA editing as a source of genetic variation.
Cambridge, United States. In Nature, 1993
Although the COIII gene encoding cytochrome c oxidase subunit III in Trypanosoma brucei is edited along its entire length, the presumably homologous genes in two related trypanosomes, Leishmania tarentolae and Crithidia fasciculata, are only modestly edited at their 5' ends.
