Heterologous expression of genes in bacterial, fungal, animal, and plant cells


, : Heterologous expression of genes in bacterial, fungal, animal, and plant cells. Annual Review of Plant Physiology and Plant Molecular Biology 46: 419-444

Analysis of gene function is of central importance for the understanding of physiological processes. Expression of genes in heterologous organisms has allowed the isolated of many important genes (e.g. for nutrient uptake and transport) and has contributed a lot to the functional analysis of the gene products. For animal research, expression in Xenopus oocytes and cell cultures are predominant techniques, whereas in the plant domain, yeast has become the prevalent expression system.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Although MR spectroscopy and functional MR imaging of the brain have been successful at 4 T, conventional fast spin-echo imaging of the brain at 4 T has not been adequately evaluated. The purpose of this study was to compar...

Long-standing ulcerative colitis patients are known to be at high risk for the development of colorectal cancer. Therefore, surveillance colonoscopy has been recommended for these patients. Because colitis-associated colorectal cancer may be diffi...

Over the last decade the literature, including a multidisciplinary consensus statement, has supported a paradigm shift in management of urinary tract dilation, yet the impact on practice patterns has not been well documented. This study aims to el...
