    School of Biological Sciences, University of Bristol, Woodland Road, BS8 1UG, Bristol, UK
    FEBS Lett 547:137-9. 2003
    ..The substrate specificity was shown to be unaffected by these changes suggesting that components of the his-box are not directly responsible for substrate specificity...

    Thomas Colin Michael Fraser
    School of Biological Sciences, University of Bristol, Bristol BS8 1UG, United Kingdom
    Plant Physiol 135:859-66. 2004

  3. ncbi request reprint Identification of a cDNA encoding a novel C18-Delta(9) polyunsaturated fatty acid-specific elongating activity from the docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)-producing microalga, Isochrysis galbana
    Baoxiu Qi
    School of Biological Sciences, University of Bristol, UK
    FEBS Lett 510:159-65. 2002
    ..The results also suggest that a major route for eicosapentaenoic acid (C20:5n-3, Delta(5,8,11,14,17)) and docosahexaenoic acid syntheses in I. galbana may involve a Delta(8) desaturation pathway...
