    ..These studies lay the groundwork for detailed structural and mechanistic analysis of an important member of the desosaminyl transferase family of enzymes. ..
  2. Scheller H, Ulvskov P. Hemicelluloses. Annu Rev Plant Biol. 2010;61:263-89 pubmed publisher
    ..In contrast, the biosynthesis of xylans and beta-(1-->3,1-->4)-glucans remains very elusive, and recent studies have led to more questions than answers. ..
  3. Watanabe K, Yamaguchi Y. Molecular identification of a putative human hyaluronan synthase. J Biol Chem. 1996;271:22945-8 pubmed
    ..These results suggest that the Has2 protein is a crucial component of the human hyaluronan synthase system. ..
  4. Rodriguez Esteban C, Schwabe J, De La Pena J, Foys B, Eshelman B, Izpisua Belmonte J. Radical fringe positions the apical ectodermal ridge at the dorsoventral boundary of the vertebrate limb. Nature. 1997;386:360-6 pubmed
    ..Thus, as in Drosophila, Radical fringe positions the ridge at the dorsoventral limb boundary. ..
  5. Hays S, Firmenich A, Massey P, Banerjee R, Berg P. Studies of the interaction between Rad52 protein and the yeast single-stranded DNA binding protein RPA. Mol Cell Biol. 1998;18:4400-6 pubmed
    ..Given the location of the mutations in the DNA binding domain of Rad52, a model incorporating the role of DNA in the protein-protein interactions involved in the repair of DNA double-strand breaks is presented. ..
  6. Yamamoto M, Lin X, Kominato Y, Hata Y, Noda R, Saitou N, et al. Murine equivalent of the human histo-blood group ABO gene is a cis-AB gene and encodes a glycosyltransferase with both A and B transferase activity. J Biol Chem. 2001;276:13701-8 pubmed
    ..Cloning of the murine AB gene may be helpful in establishing a mouse model system to assess the functionality of the ABO genes in the future. ..
  7. Martinez D, Larrondo L, Putnam N, Gelpke M, Huang K, Chapman J, et al. Genome sequence of the lignocellulose degrading fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium strain RP78. Nat Biotechnol. 2004;22:695-700 pubmed
    ..This genome provides a high quality draft sequence of a basidiomycete, a major fungal phylum that includes important plant and animal pathogens...
  8. Newton G, Ta P, Bzymek K, Fahey R. Biochemistry of the initial steps of mycothiol biosynthesis. J Biol Chem. 2006;281:33910-20 pubmed publisher
    ..This demonstrates the presence of a myo-inositol transporter and a kinase that generates 1L-myo-inositol 1-phosphate. The biochemical pathway of mycothiol biosynthesis is now fully elucidated...
  9. Persson S, Caffall K, Freshour G, Hilley M, Bauer S, Poindexter P, et al. The Arabidopsis irregular xylem8 mutant is deficient in glucuronoxylan and homogalacturonan, which are essential for secondary cell wall integrity. Plant Cell. 2007;19:237-55 pubmed
