Toc64 is not required for import of proteins into chloroplasts in the moss Physcomitrella patens

Nancy Rosenbaum Hofmann, Steven M. Theg
2005 The Plant Journal  
To address this, we generated knockout mutants in the moss Physcomitrella patens using the moss's ability to perform homologous recombination with nuclear DNA.  ...  Isolation of DNA and RNA from moss plants; PCR to check targeting Genomic DNA was isolated from moss plants as described (Cove and Knight, 1999) .  ...  To confirm that Toc64 protein was located in moss chloroplasts, we generated an antibody that should react with both moss proteins (see Experimental procedures).  ...

Understanding the U.S. Bioeconomy: A New Definition and Landscape

George B. Frisvold, Steven M. Moss, Andrea Hodgson, Mary E. Maxon
2021 Sustainability  
This article provides an overview of the U.S. bioeconomy, discussing how its definition has evolved and been formalized over time. The first attempts to conceptualize and define the U.S. bioeconomy began in the early 1990s. This was followed by a series of government and private efforts to develop methods to understand and evaluate it and to develop programs to promote it. These efforts culminated in the 2020 release of the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM),

Formally adopting a comprehensive definition of the U.S. bioeconomy would enable the U.S. government to better assess the bioeconomy's current state, to develop strategies to support its growth, and to promote strategies to safeguard it. Along with this recommendation, the NASEM Safeguarding report also discussed defining the "bioeconomy landscape," which involves more precise determination and quantification of which economic activities are part of and external to the U.S. economy. Defining this landscape could guide metric development and data collection needed to track the bioeconomy's growth, conduct economic assessments, and enable policy makers to keep abreast of advances that could potentially pose new national or economic security challenges. The report also includes an analysis of the broad range national bioeconomy strategies, identification of the four drivers of the U.S. bioeconomy, and the first of its kind, comprehensive estimate of the size and scope of the U.S. bioeconomy of USD 959B (valued in 2016 constant USD ).

Maternal Periodontal Disease is Associated with Oxidative Stress during Pregnancy

M. Hickman, Kim Boggess, Kevin Moss, James Beck, Steven Offenbacher
2010 American Journal of Perinatology  
We sought to determine if maternal periodontal disease is associated with oxidative stress as measured by serum 8-isoprostane. A secondary analysis was conducted using prospective data from the Oral Conditions and Pregnancy Study. Healthy women enrolled at <26 weeks' gestational age underwent oral examination and serum sampling. Maternal periodontal disease status was categorized as healthy, mild, or moderate to severe by clinical criteria. Maternal serum was analyzed for 8-isoprostane using

Maternal factors associated with elevated 8isoprostane were determined using chi-square or t test. Multivariable logistic regression was used to assess association between elevated 8-isoprostane and maternal factors. Seven hundred ninetyone women had complete data. Median (interquartile) 8-isoprostane serum level was 1806 (16 to 81,870) pg/dL. Using bivariate analysis, maternal age, race, marital status, utilization of public assistance, and mild or moderate to severe periodontal disease were associated with elevated serum 8-isoprostane. Using logistic regression, moderate to severe periodontal disease (adjusted odds ratio 2.9, 95% confidence interval: 1.7 to 5.0) remained significantly associated with an elevated serum 8-isoprostane level. Maternal periodontal disease is associated with oxidative stress during pregnancy. Further study is needed to determine the role of maternal oxidative stress in periodontal disease-associated adverse pregnancy outcomes. Oxidative stress is characterized by a state of imbalance between free radicals and antioxidant defenses. Free radicals are produced endogenously as part of the oxidative burst of phagocyte activation, and they are encountered via exogenous production from sources such as cigarette smoke. When an excess production of reactive oxygen species is formed, oxidative stress ensues. A member of the isoprostane family, 8-isoprostane PGF 2α (8-iso),

Priorities for Improving the Management of Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors

Irvin M. Modlin, Steven F. Moss, Daniel C. Chung, Robert T. Jensen, Elizabeth Snyderwine
2008 Journal of the National Cancer Institute  
A National Cancer Institute summit meeting on gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine and carcinoid tumors was held in September 2007 to present the currently accepted standards of care for patients with these tumors and to identify areas requiring investigation and development. These tumors are clinically and pathologically heterogeneous, present commonly with obscure symptoms that lead to delays in diagnosis of years, and have an incidence in the United States of 2.5 to 5 cases per 100 000. The

This report delineates the main conclusions of the meeting, including the best practice diagnosis and treatment strategies for gastropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors, and the identi fication of clinical and scientific areas that are most in need of attention. The most pressing needs were public and physician educa tion, identification of molecular markers for early diagnosis and therapeutic monitoring, improved imaging modalities and molecular prognostication, development of a standardized pathological classification system, and creation of regional centers of expertise with tumor and laboratory data banks. In addition, adequately validated neuroendocrine tumor models and cell lines should be established to investigate the molecular mechanisms involved in the control of their growth and secretion, and to facilitate the development of specific therapies that should be examined in well-designed multicenter studies of defined patient groups.
