In this short essay we will discuss the possible diseases of King Richard III according to the descriptions in Shakespeare's plays King Richard III and Henry VI. Furthermore, it is shown that the description of the defeated enemy as physically and mentally deformed is part of a long tradition which has its roots in Ancient Greece.

In this paper, we determined the complete mitochondrial genome of Solen strictus (Bivalvia: Solenidae). The whole mitogenome of S. strictus is 16,535 bp in length with a base composition of 21.7% A, 41.0% T, 25.6% C, and 11.7% G and contains 12 p...

Collaboration between discrete domains and CSL-binding site architecture determines activation probability. All four mammalian Notch proteins interact with a single DNA-binding protein (RBP-j[kappa]), yet they are not equivalent in activating target genes. Parallel assays of three Notch-responsive promoters in several cell lines revealed that relative a...
