Functional clones and expressibility of partition functions

Andrei Bulatov, Leslie Ann Goldberg, Mark Jerrum, David Richerby, Stanislav Živný
2017 Theoretical Computer Science  
We identify a sublattice of interesting functional clones and investigate the relationships and properties of the functional clones in this sublattice.  ...  We study functional clones, which are sets of non-negative pseudo-Boolean functions (functions {0,1}^k→R_≥ 0) closed under (essentially) multiplication, summation and limits.  ...  In their weighted form, counting CSPs are general enough to express many partition functions occurring in statistical physics.  ...

S Chang, S Y Chang, O Gray
1987 Journal of Bacteriology  
The cloned par fragment regulated the partition of several different Bacillus replicons, and it only functioned in cis; it did not contain the replication function nor elevate the plasmid copy number in  ...  Using a partition-deficient plasmid vector, we randomly cloned DNA fragments of plasmid pLS11 and identified the locus that regulates plasmid partition (par) by cis complementation in Bacillus subtilis  ...  Ho for construction of some of the plasmids used in these studies, and S.

Objective Clustering of Proteins Based on Subcellular Location Patterns

Xiang Chen, Robert F. Murphy
2005 Journal of Biomedicine and Biotechnology  
We describe an automated method that selects the best feature set to describe images for a given collection of proteins and constructs an effective partitioning of the proteins by location.  ...  The goal of proteomics is the complete characterization of all proteins. Efforts to characterize subcellular location have been limited to assigning proteins to general categories of organelles.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We thank Jonathan Jarvik, Peter Berget, and all of our colleagues in the CD-tagging project for helpful discussions and providing images of tagged cell lines.  ...

Sharing Duties in the Family

C.-K. J. Shen
2001 Genome Research  
Also, in the DDC model, partitioning of the functions and sites of expression among the paralogs are associated with mutations in the regulatory as well as in the coding regions.  ...  Did partitioning of the sites of expression occur first, or the partitioning of the function? Were critical mutations in the regulatory regions fixed prior to those in the coding regions?  ...

Molecular characterization and functional analysis of sucrose-cleaving enzymes in carrot (Daucus carota L.)

Arnd Sturm
1996 Journal of Experimental Botany  
The source/sink balance of these plants was manipulated and only the expression of these two genes was markedly altered, indicating their importance in sucrose partitioning.  ...  The expression patterns of each gene were different and were organ-and development-specific.  ...  Only the expression of isoenzyme II of vacuolar invertase and sucrose synthase markedly changed, supporting their involvement in sucrose partitioning.  ...

Expression of BamHI-A Rightward Transcripts in Epstein-Barr Virus-Associated Gastric Cancers

Bo-Gun Jang, Eun Ji Jung, Woo Ho Kim
2011 Cancer research and treatment : official journal of Korean Cancer Association  
Sequence reaction was carried out for the EBVassociated clones. Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction was performed after cells were partitioned into nuclear and cytoplasmic fractions.  ...  Results Using bioinformatic tools, we selected 13 EBV-associated clones from cDNA libraries of SNU719.  ...  Clones 1, 2, 4, 6, 10, 11 and 13 showed two fragments of 1.2 kb and 0.4 kb because of their EcoR I recognition sites. Sequence alignment of three groups of clones to the RPMS1 cDNA.  ...

Fine-structure analysis of the P7 plasmid partition site

F Hayes, M A Davis, S J Austin
1993 Journal of Bacteriology  
Although the P7 site shares 55% sequence identity with its counterpart in bacteriophage P1, functional interactions between the partition sites and the Par proteins of the two plasmids were entirely species  ...  No evidence was found for the existence of a functional P7 analog of the P1 parS core, a small subregion of the P1 site that, in isolation, acts as an enfeebled partition site with modified incompatibility  ...  The P1 and P7 partition sites are therefore plasmid specific, both in their abilities to support the active partition process and in the expression of partition-mediated incompatibility towards P1 and  ...

Cortical aPKC kinase activity distinguishes neural stem cells from progenitor cells by ensuring asymmetric segregation of Numb

Jill M. Haenfler, Chaoyuan Kuang, Cheng-Yu Lee
2012 Developmental Biology  
In the absence of lgl function, elevated cortical aPKC kinase activity perturbs unequal partitioning of the fate determinants including Numb and induces supernumerary neuroblasts in larval brains.  ...  To investigate how increased cortical aPKC function induces formation of excess neuroblasts, we analyzed the fate of cells in neuroblast lineage clones in lgl mutant brains.  ...  We thank the anonymous reviewer and members of the Lee lab for reading the manuscript and providing critical comments.  ...
