  1. Morett E, Bork P. Evolution of new protein function: recombinational enhancer Fis originated by horizontal gene transfer from the transcriptional regulator NtrC. FEBS Lett. 1998;433:108-12 pubmed
    ..Thus, we propose that yhdG and fis were acquired by a lineage ancestral to the gamma proteobacteria in a single horizontal gene transfer event, and later diverged to their present functions. ..
  2. Vazquez M, Santana O, Quinto C. The NodL and NodJ proteins from Rhizobium and Bradyrhizobium strains are similar to capsular polysaccharide secretion proteins from gram-negative bacteria. Mol Microbiol. 1993;8:369-77 pubmed
    ..On the basis of the similarity found, we propose that the NodL and the NodJ proteins could be involved in the export of a lipo-oligosaccharide...
  3. Reynaud E, Lomeli H, Vazquez M, Zurita M. The Drosophila melanogaster homologue of the Xeroderma pigmentosum D gene product is located in euchromatic regions and has a dynamic response to UV light-induced lesions in polytene chromosomes. Mol Biol Cell. 1999;10:1191-203 pubmed
    ..This is the first time that the response to DNA damage by UV-light irradiation can be visualized directly on the chromosomes using one of the TFIIH components. ..
  4. Vázquez M, Rodríguez R, Zurita M. A new peroxinectin-like gene preferentially expressed during oogenesis and early embryogenesis in Drosophila melanogaster. Dev Genes Evol. 2002;212:526-9 pubmed
    ..It is virtually absent at other stages of the Drosophila life cycle, suggesting that Dpxt function is restricted to the early stages of fly development. ..
  5. Soberón N, Venkova Canova T, Ramírez Romero M, Tellez Sosa J, Cevallos M. Incompatibility and the partitioning site of the repABC basic replicon of the symbiotic plasmid from Rhizobium etli. Plasmid. 2004;51:203-16 pubmed
    ..With these findings we propose that inc(beta) contains the partitioning site (par site) of the basic replicon of plasmid p42d, and that the 16-bp palindrome is the core sequence to nucleate the RepB binding...
