Crosslinking the 3′ End of a VLAT to RNA Polymerase: A Method to Elucidate Forward Hyper-Translocation
On a typically strong E. coli promoter, as nascent RNA grows to 8-10 nt⎯accompanied by scrunching 6-8 bp of the enlarged transcription bubble⎯the initial DNA-RNAP contacts disrupt, upstream bubble rewinds, promoter escape ...
The Relationship between Radar Scattering and Lunar Surface Roughness
Understanding the morphology of volcanic features on the Moon is essential to discovering their emplacement mechanisms. It is possible to use radar to distinguish different volcanic terrains on the Moon. In this work, we ...
Early Differential IDO Expression Patterns In The MAIDS Model
Murine acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (MAIDS) is an animal model that is used to study AIDS. It is caused by an exposure to a defective retrovirus present in the LP-BM5 isolate of murine leukemia virus (MuLV) mixture. ...
