14-3-3 proteins are part of an abscisic acid-VIVIPAROUS1 (VP1) response complex in the Em promoter and interact with VP1 and EmBP1.

Journal Article The Plant cell · May 1998 Protein-DNA complexes were formed when nuclear extracts from embryogenic rice suspension cultures or maize embryos were incubated with an abscisic acid-VIVIPAROUS1 (VP1) response element (Em1a) from the Em promoter. Monoclonal antibodies generated to GF14, ... Full text Cite

A conserved domain of the viviparous-1 gene product enhances the DNA binding activity of the bZIP protein EmBP-1 and other transcription factors.

Journal Article The Journal of biological chemistry · February 1996 The maize VP1 protein is a seed-specific regulator of gene expression that effects the expression of a subset of abscisic acid (ABA)-regulated genes that are expressed during the maturation program of the seed. In addition, VP1 has pleiotropic effects on s ... Full text Cite

The structure of a primitive kinetochore.

Journal Article Trends in biochemical sciences · June 1989 The isolation of yeast centromeres has provided the opportunity to describe the molecular structure of chromosome attachments to the mitotic spindle. Nucleolytic probes of chromatin structure and construction of conditional mutants in centromere function h ... Full text Cite

Acquisition and processing of a conditional dicentric chromosome in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Journal Article Molecular and cellular biology · March 1989 The introduction of a conditional centromere into chromosome III of Saccharomyces cerevisiae provided an opportunity to evaluate phenotypic and karyotypic consequences in cells harboring dicentric chromosomes upon entry into mitosis. A mitotic pause ensued ... Full text Cite

Conditional dicentric chromosomes in yeast.

Journal Article Progress in clinical and biological research · January 1989 Cite

Genetic manipulation of centromere function.

Journal Article Molecular and cellular biology · July 1987 A conditional centromere was constructed in Saccharomyces cerevisiae by placing the centromere of chromosome III immediately downstream from the inducible GAL1 promoter from S. cerevisiae. By utilizing growth conditions that favor either transcriptional in ... Full text Cite

Molecular cloning and sequence analysis of a cDNA coding for the mouse alpha-like embryonic globin chain x.

Journal Article Gene · November 1984 Cytoplasmic poly(A)+mRNA from 12-day mouse-yolk-sac erythroid cells has been used to prepare a cDNA library in the plasmid pBR322. One clone containing sequences coding for the alpha-like embryonic globin chain x, pHE52, has been identified by hybrid selec ... Full text Cite

Two mouse early embryonic beta-globin gene sequences. Evolution of the nonadult beta-globins.

Journal Article The Journal of biological chemistry · March 1984 We have determined the complete nucleotide sequence of two early embryonic beta-globin genes of the BALB/c mouse: beta h0 and beta h1 X beta h1 codes for the embryonic z protein, while the beta h0 gene may be a minor early embryonic beta-globin gene. The g ... Full text Cite
