We present a Web-accessible database (ALFRED) that allows public access to gene frequency data for a diverse set of population samples and genetic systems. The data in ALFRED are modeled based on the experience and needs of a single laboratory, but with the expectation that the database will meet the needs of a much broader scientific community that needs population-specific gene frequency estimates. Our database currently contains data on more than 40 populations representing most majordoi:10.1142/9789814447331_0062 fatcat:qwvndxvaebfetaa6i7vystebsm

While data are not available for all population-genetic system combinations, over 2000 allele frequency tables already exist. In this paper, we enumerate the broad needs in the scientific domain, describe their significance, and describe how we have designed the database to meet those needs. We compare our database with dbSNP, the NCBI database that has a broader but overlapping purpose. * These authors contributed equally to this communication.
The need for policies to control calls is justified by the changing face of communications. It is argued that call control requires distinctive capabilities in a policy system. A specialised policy language called APPEL (ACCENT Project Policy Environment/Language) has therefore been developed for this purpose. However the policy language is cleanly separated into a core plus specialisations for various application domains. The paper describes both the foundation and the call control ontologies.doi:10.1016/j.csi.2005.05.004 fatcat:qevdn7bshjhy3ljxzimrgct2v4

Penaeidins are a diverse family of two-domain antimicrobial peptides expressed in shrimp. Variation in penaeidin sequence results in functional diversity, which was discovered using synthetic reproductions of native penaeidins. An isoform of penaeidin class 3 from L. setiferus (Litset Pen3 −4) was synthesized using native ligation and compared directly with the synthetic penaeidin class 4 known to be expressed in the same organism. New antimicrobial activity data is included in this review thatdoi:10.1016/j.dci.2007.06.009 pmid:17716729 pmcid:PMC2245800 fatcat:rd3fmecgdnb6fc2w76mphrz7za

A novel approach to intact penaeidin analysis is presented in the form of Fourier Transform Ion-Cyclotron Resonance Mass Spectrometry, which has implications for the identification of individual penaeidin isoforms without chemical modification or enzymatic cleavage. The new information included in this review helps gather the perspective on relevance of penaeidin diversity to antimicrobial function, the use of synthetic peptides as tools to evaluate specific immune functions and the application of high mass resolution, top-down sequencing methods to the intact analysis of individual penaeidin isoforms.

The deluge of data from the human genome project (HGP) presents new opportunities for molecular anthropologists to study human variation through the promise of vast numbers of new polymorphisms (e.g., single nucleotide polymorphisms or SNPs). Collecting the resulting data into a single, easily accessible resource will be important to facilitate this research. We created a prototype Web-accessible database named ALFRED (ALelle FREquency Database, http://alfred.med.yale.edu/ alfred/) to store anddoi:10.1002/ajpa.10094 pmid:12209575 fatcat:meb5mz5kyveyxj6qwow3qat7nm

In constructing this database, we considered many different concerns relating to the types of informa-tion needed for anthropology, population genetics, molecular genetics, and statistics, as well as issues of data integrity and ease of access to data. We also developed links to other Web-based databases as well as procedures for others to make links to the data in ALFRED. Here we present an overview of the issues considered and provisional solutions, as well as an example of data already available. It is our hope that this database will be useful for research and teaching in a wide range of fields, and that colleagues from various fields will contribute to making ALFRED an important resource for many studies as yet unforeseen.

ZFP36L2 protein destabilizes AU-rich element-containing transcripts and has been implicated in female fertility. In the C57BL/6NTac mouse, a mutation in Zfp36l2 that results in the decreased expression of a form of ZFP36L2 in which the 29 Nterminal amino acid residues have been deleted, DN-ZFP36L2, leads to fertilized eggs that arrest at the two-cell stage. Interestingly, homozygous DN-Zfp36l2 females in the C57BL/6NTac strain release 40% fewer eggs than the WT littermates (Ramos et al., 2004)doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0097324 pmid:24830504 pmcid:PMC4022657 fatcat:ndqso5ghpbcvxmcszwmzmnwioq

Curiously, the same DN-Zfp36l2 mutation into the SV129 strain resulted in anovulation, prompting us to investigate a potential problem in ovulation and oocyte maturation. Remarkably, only 20% of DN-Zfp36l2 oocytes in the 129S6/SvEvTac strain matured ex vivo, suggesting a defect on the oocyte meiotic maturation process. Treatment of DN-Zfp36l2 oocytes with a PKA inhibitor partially rescued the meiotic arrested oocytes. Furthermore, cAMP levels were increased in DN-Zfp36l2 oocytes, linking the cAMP/PKA pathway and DN-Zfp36l2 with meiotic arrest. Since ovulation and oocyte maturation are both triggered by LHR signaling, the downstream pathway was investigated. Adenylyl cyclase activity was increased in DN-Zfp36l2 ovaries only upon LH stimulation. Moreover, we discovered that ZFP36L2 interacts with the 39UTR of LHR mRNA and that decreased expression levels of Zfp36l2 correlates with higher levels of LHR mRNA in synchronized ovaries. Furthermore, overexpression of ZFP36L2 decreases the endogenous expression of LHR mRNA in a cell line. Therefore, we propose that lack of the physiological down regulation of LHR mRNA levels by ZFP36L2 in the ovaries is associated with anovulation and oocyte meiotic arrest.
A constituent parton picture of hadrons with logarithmic confinement naturally arises in weak coupling light-front QCD. Confinement provides a mass gap that allows the constituent picture to emerge. The effective renormalized Hamiltonian is computed to O(g^2), and used to study charmonium and bottomonium. Radial and angular excitations can be used to fix the coupling α, the quark mass M, and the cutoff Λ. The resultant hyperfine structure is very close to experiment.doi:10.1103/physrevlett.78.1227 fatcat:q5ataungtfdsncxwxevcwmkcfm

A review of literature and summary of research results are presented on the effects of drainage on water quality in North Carolina. South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. Principal findings from the predominate coarse-textured soils of the Atlantic Coastal Plain include increased nitrate-nitrogen losses associated with improved subsurface drainage. Benefits of drainage include potential reductions in organic nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) losses from these mineraf soils.

P losses can be potentially reduced by using slow versus fast drainage, retaining drainage water from vegetable and sugarcane fields (on sugarcane or fallow areas), and minimizing water-table fluctuations. Some of these potential practices and their resultant effects need additional verification for application to other areas and conditions.
