Each category...
A combination of batch fermentations and genome scale flux balance analysis were used to identify and quantify the rate limiting reactions in the xylulose transport and utilization pathway. Xylulose phosphorylation by xylulokinase was identified as limiting in wild type Saccharomyces cerevisiae, but transport became limiting when xylulokinase was upregulated. Further...

Identification of heterotic groups and patterns among breeding populations provides fundamental information to help plant breeders more knowledgeably manipulate heterosis. A diallel analysis was conducted among nine alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) germplasms, commonly referred to as African, Chilean, Flemish, Indian, Ladak, M. falcata, M. varia, Peruvian, and Turkistan, which represent...
Phylogenetic analyses based on nLSU and ITS sequence data indicate that the sequestrate genus Gigasperma is polyphyletic. Gigasperma cryptica, which is known only from New Zealand, has affinities with the Cortinariaceae whereas G. americanum and two additional undescribed taxa from western North America are derived from Lepiota within the Agaricaceae....
