Genome Wide Identification of the Alba Gene Family in Plants and Stress Responsive Expression of the Rice Alba Genes

PMCID: 5924525
PMID: 29597290
DOI: 10.3390/genes9040183

[…] The subcellular localization was analyzed in silico using BaCelLo [], ESLPred [], YLoc [], PSORT II [], LocTree3 [], WoLF PSORT [], Plant-mPLoc [], and CELLO []. The NCBI database was used to retrieve a 1500-bp DNA sequence from the 5′-upstream region of eac […]

Identifying Potential Plasmodium vivax Sporozoite Stage Vaccine Candidates: An Analysis of Genetic Diversity and Natural Selection

Front Genet
PMCID: 5788960
PMID: 29422913
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2018.00010

[…] quences were used for in silico characterization using several bioinformatics tools. SignalP (Nielsen, ) and Phobius (Kall et al., ) predictors were used for ascertaining signal peptide presence; the BaCelLo algorithm (Pierleoni et al., ) was used for predicting antigen location. Transmembrane and/or GPI domains were evaluated with Phobius, TMHMM (Sonnhammer et al., ) and GPI-SOM (Fankhauser and M […]


The Role of the S40 Gene Family in Leaf Senescence

Int J Mol Sci
PMCID: 5666833
PMID: 29035318
DOI: 10.3390/ijms18102152

[…] h the HvS40-GUS fusion construct [].The putative subcellular localization of S40 proteins in rice was predicted using the publicly available web services YLoc, WoLF PSORT, DISTILL 2.0, LOCALIZER 1.0, BaCelLo and Euk-mPLoc-2.0. A dominant number of prediction programs predicted the localization of OsS40-1, OsS40-2, OsS40-3, OsS40-5, OsS40-6, OsS40-7, OsS40-9, OsS40-14 and OsS40-16 in the nucleus wh […]
