The gene family encoding the Arabidopsis thaliana translation elongation factor EF-1 alpha: molecular cloning, characterization and expression.
The trade-offs are not associated with overexpression of the gene for elongation factor. The P-element insertions evidently disrupted gene expression in various ways that cannot be precisely measured with these data.
The chromatin-specific transcription elongation factor FACT comprises human SPT16 and SSRP1 proteins.
The researchers' analysis also suggests that the way poxA and yjeK modify the bacterial protein elongation factor is essential in the production of proteins that allow the bacteria to use alternative energy sources when they are deprived of nutrients, as occurs after they enter host cells.
Following this, the nitrocellulose membrane was incubated with polyclonal antibodies specific for rice glutelin (Krishnan et al., 1986), globulin (Krishnan et al., 1992), prolamin (Krishnan and White, 1995), maize binding protein (Boston et al., 1991), and elongation factor lA (Habben et al., 1995) that were diluted 1:500 in TBS containing 50 g [kg.sup.-1] non-fat dairy milk for 1 h at room temperature.
The expression levels of 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase type-2 (HCDH), acetyl-Coenzyme A acetyltransferase 2 (ACAT) and elongation factor Tu were down-regulated, and alpha-enolase and creatine kinase were up-regulated in the livers of ketotic cows.
The top-half domain, sometimes referred to as a tRNA "minihelix," has been shown to provide the determinants necessary for specific charging by aminoacyl tRNA synthetases (14, 15); for interaction with elongation factor Tu (16); for 5[prime] processing by RNase P (17); and for distinguishing elongator from initiator tRNA (18).
For example, we have shown that cladistic analysis (sensu Hennig) of the elongation factor protein data set does not support the rooting of the tree of life in the bacterial branch (4).
