Regulation of the thioredoxin system in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
The thioredoxin system consisting of thioredoxin (Trx), thioredoxin reductase and NADPH plays a significant role in a large number of redox-dependent processes such as DNA synthesis and anti-oxidant defense. Elevated levels ...
Estimation of genetic variation and marker identification in black wattle (Acacia mearnsii De Wild) with RAPD fingerprinting.

Novel cationic lipoplexes : characterization in cell culture in vitro and in vivo.
Amongst the more promising non-viral DNA vehicles are liposomes, with those derived from cationic lipids showing significant potential, despite moderate transfection levels in vivo. This study has investigated the effect ...
Testing the utility of DNA barcoding for the rapid assessment of Formicidae biodiversity in the eThekwini region.
The biodiversity of Durban (eThekwini municipality) in KwaZulu Natal is primarily threatened by urbanization although other factors such as climate change and the spread of invasive species also pose a significant threat. ...
The inhibition of Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. cubense race 4 by Burkholderia cepacia.
Inhibition of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense race 4 by Burkholderia cepacia was evident when grown on various media (TSA, PDA, PSA, YM, KMB, PPM, NYGA, LA) with different carbon sources and under various pH and ...
Characterisation of the divergence of the Elsenburg Merino resource flock.
The Elsenburg Merino flock has been divergently selected for the ability of ewes to rear multiple offspring since 1986. Updated genetic trends for reproduction are reported for the Elsenburg Merino resource flock. The ...
Behavioural, reproductive and growth studies on Oreochromis mossambicus (Peters 1852)
A major obstacle facing the successful creation of an African aquaculture industry, based upon Oreochromids, is the irregular supply of good quality fish seed. There are several causative biological processes behind its ...
Optimisation of the randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) technique for the characterisation of selected South African maize (Zea mays L.) breeding material.
Maize (Zea mays L.) is an important agronomic crop with the maize industry forming an important component of the South African economy. Considerable effort has been directed towards the genetic improvement of maize through ...
Breed effects on the virulence gene profiles and genetic diversity at FUT1, MUC4, MUC13 and MUC20 candidate genes for controlling diarrhoea-causing Escherichia coli.
Escherichia (E) coli infections result in diarrhoea and oedema in growing pigs. Enterotoxigenic (ETEC), shigatoxin producing (STEC) and enteroaggregative (EAEC) E. coli have been identified as the principal causes of ...
The dynamics of thioredoxin-dependent reactions.
The thioredoxin system, comprising thioredoxin (Trx), thioredoxin reductase (TrxR) and NADPH, is present in most organisms from prokaryotes to eukaryotes. The system plays a central role in the redox regulation of several ...
