- Biosynthesis of the flavour precursors of onion and garlicMeriel G Jones
School of Biological Sciences, The Biosciences Building, The University of Liverpool, Liverpool L69 7ZB, UK
J Exp Bot 55:1903-18. 2004..Cysteine and glutathione metabolism are discussed to indicate parallels with Allium flavour precursor biosynthesis. Finally, possible avenues for exploration to determine the origin in planta of the alk(en)yl groups are suggested...
- The first filamentous fungal genome sequences: Aspergillus leads the way for essential everyday resources or dusty museum specimens?Meriel G Jones
The University of Liverpool, School of Biological Sciences, Biosciences Building, Crown Street, Liverpool L69 7ZB, UK
Microbiology 153:1-6. 2007..In addition, strategies for continued maintenance and updating need to be developed at the start of the post-genomic era to increase the value of genome sequences into the future...
- Effect of low storage temperature on some of the flavour precursors in garlic (Allium sativum)Jill Hughes
School of Biological Sciences, The BioScience Building, University of Liverpool, Crown Street, Liverpool, L69 7ZB, UK
Plant Foods Hum Nutr 61:81-5. 2006..The degree of chemical changes during storage will be of interest to the food and pharmaceutical industries...
- Distinct roles for Caf1, Ccr4, Edc3 and CutA in the co-ordination of transcript deadenylation, decapping and P-body formation in Aspergillus nidulansIgor Y Morozov
School of Biological Sciences, The University of Liverpool, Crown Street, Liverpool L69 7ZB, UK
Mol Microbiol 76:503-16. 2010..As with DeltacutA, Deltaedc3 led to reduced rates of transcript degradation. These data link P-bodies to both the optimization and regulation of transcript degradation...
- Genetic analysis of the TOR pathway in Aspergillus nidulansGregory J Fitzgibbon
The University of Liverpool, School of Biological Sciences, The Biosciences Building, Crown Street, Liverpool L69 7ZB, United Kingdom
Eukaryot Cell 4:1595-8. 2005..Unlike the situation in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, there is only a single Tor kinase, as in plant and animal systems, and mutant phenotypes suggest that the TOR pathway plays only a minor role in regulating nitrogen metabolism...
- Opposing signals differentially regulate transcript stability in Aspergillus nidulansMark X Caddick
The University of Liverpool, School of Biological Sciences, Biosciences Building, Crown Street, Liverpool, L69 7ZB, UK
Mol Microbiol 62:509-19. 2006..Regulated transcript stability is therefore an integral part of the adaptive response. This represents the first example of distinct physiological signals competing to differentially regulate transcripts at the level of deadenylation...
- CUCU modification of mRNA promotes decapping and transcript degradation in Aspergillus nidulansIgor Y Morozov
University of Liverpool, School of Biological Sciences, Crown Street, Liverpool L69 7ZB, United Kingdom
Mol Cell Biol 30:460-9. 2010..We propose that 3' modification of adenylated mRNA, which is likely to represent a common eukaryotic process, primes the transcript for decapping and efficient degradation...
