Packaging of Dinoroseobacter shibae DNA into Gene Transfer Agent Particles Is Not Random

Genome Biol Evol
PMCID: 5786225
PMID: 29325123
DOI: 10.1093/gbe/evy005

[…] se gene, was identified in the D. shibae genome at position 98.7–102.8 kb, just outside peak 1 (, online). Genes encoding transposable elements or tRNAs were also not found within the DsGTA coverage peaks (, online). The origin and terminus of replication showed a higher frequency of methylated adenosines (m6A) (), whereas the frequency of methylated cytosines (m4C) lacked such a pattern (, onl […]


Plasma degradome affected by variable storage of human blood

PMCID: 5037888
PMID: 27708557
DOI: 10.1186/s12014-016-9126-9
call_split See protocol

[…] Sequence interpretation of MS/MS spectra of naturally occurred peptides was performed by the interrogation of UniProt Homo Sapiens database using PEAKS Online v7.5 (Bioinformatics Solutions Inc.) with an FDR of 1 % and imported into the Progenesis QI software for quantitation. Average normalised abundance values were obtained via quantile norma […]


Early enhancer establishment and regulatory locus complexity shape transcriptional programs in hematopoietic differentiation

Nat Genet
PMCID: 4626279
PMID: 26390058
DOI: 10.1038/ng.3402

[…] ve transcriptional enhancers. When we overlaid CTCF ChIP-seq from the ENCODE lymphoblastoid cell line GM12878 with ubiquitous DHSs, we saw dramatic enrichment of CTCF signal at low H3K4me3 ubiquitous peaks (, Online Methods), suggesting their a role in 3D chromatin structure. An early ENCODE study of 1% of the human genome across 6 unrelated cell types found that almost all ubiquitous DNase peaks […]


Sb2Se3 under pressure

Sci Rep
PMCID: 3776230
PMID: 24045363
DOI: 10.1038/srep02665

[…] ef. . It should be noted, however, that the Raman spectra obtained with M/E/W and M/E exhibit also distinct differences between each other, e.g. completely different relative intensities of the Raman peaks [ online]. Therefore, it becomes clear that the choice of PTM affects the Raman response of Sb2Se3. Since the Raman response of Sb2Se3 at ambient conditions matches that of Sb2Se3 embedded in th […]


Temperature and species richness effects in phytoplankton communities

PMCID: 3548109
PMID: 22847329
DOI: 10.1007/s00442-012-2419-4

[…] t complementary processes other than light use efficiency influenced nutrient uptake in phytoplankton communities of higher species richness. However, a clear increase in C:P ratios after temperature peaks (Online Resource Fig. S4) suggests that the complementary effects of light use may be more pronounced compared to potential other complementary processes involved in nutrient uptake. […]


Tbx2 and Tbx3 induce atrioventricular myocardial development and endocardial cushion formation

PMCID: 3314179
PMID: 22130515
DOI: 10.1007/s00018-011-0884-2

[…] directly regulate these genes (Fig. b, c; Online Fig. 7). Two genes that are not influenced by Tbx3 in the myocardium but indirectly in the endocardium, Has2 and Sox9, were indeed devoid of any Tbx3 peaks (Online Fig. 7).Fig. 6Closer inspection of the Bmp2 locus revealed one particular genomic site with which Tbx3 interacts (Fig. c). In the developing heart, enhancer associated co-factor p300 was […]
