Metabolomic Characterizations of Liver Injury Caused by Acute Arsenic Toxicity in Zebrafish

PMCID: 4788152
PMID: 26967897
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0151225

[…] with reference to relevant mrna changes from a transcriptomic profile of arsenate exposure we previously obtained using the same exposure conditions []. the network structure was modified from ipa target explorer (, the observation of arsenic-induced glycogenolysis and glycolysis intermediates with concurrent increase in pyruvate […]


Precise stellar surface gravities from the time scales of convectively driven brightness variations

PMCID: 4705039
PMID: 26767193
DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.1500654

[…] the intrinsic brightness variations are typically much smaller than the photon noise) or on most of the targets from missions such as microvariability and oscillations of stars (most) () and bright target explorer (brite) (), where it is more difficult to separate the contribution of photon noise from those of other sources of instrumental noise., here, we present a method to determine surface […]


Functional role of pyruvate kinase from Lactobacillus bulgaricus in acid tolerance and identification of its transcription factor by bacterial one hybrid

PMCID: 4652205
PMID: 26581248
DOI: 10.1038/srep17024

[…] the positive transformants were sequenced and further analyzed with dnaman. the tf binding site was predicted using an online database regprecise ( and target explorer (, in order to further investigate the role of ccpa in the regulation of pyk expression, l. bulgaricus cauh1 was respectively grown in mrss (mrs broth […]


Establishment of a Developmental Compartment Requires Interactions between Three Synergistic Cis regulatory Modules

PMCID: 4607503
PMID: 26468882
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1005376

[…] []. the putative pnt, ap and sd binding sites were identified on the basis of a bioinformatics analysis combining data from the jaspar core insecta database ( and the target explorer tool []., mutagenesis of the putative pnt, sd and ap binding sites was performed using the quikchange site-directed mutagenesis kit (stratagene). see for sequence of all primers used […]
