Concerted gene recruitment in early plant evolution
(East Carolina University, 2008-07)
Background: Horizontal gene transfer occurs frequently in prokaryotes and unicellular eukaryotes. Anciently acquired genes, if retained among descendants, might significantly affect the long-term evolution of the recipient ...
The AraC-Like Transcriptional Regulator DhbR Is Required for Maximum Expression of the 2,3-Dihydroxybenzoic Acid Biosynthesis Genes in Brucella abortus 2308 in Response to Iron Deprivation
(East Carolina University, 2008-03)
Phenotypic evaluation of isogenic mutants derived from Brucella abortus 2308 indicates that the AlcR homolog DhbR (2,3-dihydroxybenzoic acid [2,3-DHBA] biosynthesis regulator) modulates the expression of the genes involved ...
Microarray and pathway analysis reveals decreased CDC25A and increased CDC42 associated with slow growth of BCL2 overexpressing immortalized breast cell line
(East Carolina University, 2008-10)
Bcl-2 is an anti-apoptotic protein that is frequently overex-pressed in cancer cells but its role in carcinogenesis is not clear. We are interested in how Bcl-2 expression affects non-cancerous breast cells and its role ...
