Genome Sequencing of Sulfolobus sp. A20 from Costa Rica and Comparative Analyses of the Putative Pathways of Carbon, Nitrogen, and Sulfur Metabolism in Various Sulfolobus Strains
The genome of Sulfolobus sp. A20 isolated from a hot spring in Costa Rica was sequenced. This circular genome of the strain is 2,688,317 bp in size and 34.8% in G+C content, and contains 2591 open reading frames (ORFs). ...
A time- and cost-effective strategy to sequence mammalian Y Chromosomes: an application to the de novo assembly of gorilla Y
The mammalian Y Chromosome sequence, critical for studying male fertility and dispersal, is enriched in repeats and palindromes, and thus, is the most difficult component of the genome to assemble. Previously, expensive ...
Selvamicin, an atypical antifungal polyene from two alternative genomic contexts
The bacteria harbored by fungus-growing ants produce a variety of small molecules that help maintain a complex multilateral symbiosis. In a survey of antifungal compounds from these bacteria, we discovered selvamicin, an ...
A microbial consortium from a biomixture swiftly degrades high concentrations of carbofuran in fluidized-bed reactors
An on-farm biopurification system (BPS) biomixture, with proven capacity to degrade carbofuran (CBF) was used as inoculum for a selective-enrichment process to obtain a bacterial consortium capable of using CBF as a sole ...
Phylogenetic reassessment of Specklinia and its allied genera in the pleurothallidinae (Orchidaceae)
The phylogenetic relationships within Specklinia (Pleurothallidinae; Orchidaceae) and related genera are re-evaluated using Bayesian analyses of nrITS and chloroplast matK sequence data of a wide sampling of species. ...
Hallazgos fenotípicos por imágenes con Tomografía Dental Volumétrica (TDV) en amelogénesis imperfecta
Use of Dental Volumetric Tomography for Dental Phenotyping In Amelogenesis Imperfecta
Amelogénesis imperfecta (AI) se describe como un conjunto de defectos mendelianos en la biomineralización del esmalte dental, los cuales son severos en la mayoría de los casos al presentar anormalidades tales como un grosor ...
Characterization of Expression Quantitative Trait Loci in Pedigrees from Colombia and Costa Rica Ascertained for Bipolar Disorder
The observation that variants regulating gene expression (expression quantitative trait loci, eQTL) are at a high frequency among SNPs associated with complex traits has made the genome-wide characterization of gene ...
Genetic contributions to circadian activity rhythm and sleep pattern phenotypes in pedigrees segregating for severe bipolar disorder
Abnormalities in sleep and circadian rhythms are central features of bipolar disorder (BP), often persisting between episodes. We report here, to our knowledge, the first systematic analysis of circadian rhythm activity ...
Brachiopods, sipunculans, enteropneusts and metals from two estuarine tidal flats, Pacific, Costa Rica
Braquiópodos, sipuncúlidos, enteropneustos y metales en dos planicies estuarinas de marea, Pacífico, Costa Rica.
Reports on the abundances and on metal concentrations in intertidal estuarine invertebrates from the Eastern Tropical Pacific are rare. Thus, the objectives of this report are to make accessible data on the abundances ...
Density, size, and biomass of Diadema mexicanum (Echinoidea) in Eastern Tropical Pacific coral reefs
Diadema is among the most abundant, widely dispersed, and ecologically important genera of sea urchin in tropical shallow waters. D. mexicanum is distributed from the Gulf of California to northern Peru, including the ...
