Osteocalcin and serum insulin-like growth factor-1 as biochemical skeletal maturity indicators

Background With change in concepts of growth determination methods, there is a surge in the measurement of biomarkers for appraisal of growth status. Osteocalcin is a bone-specific protein and was observed to parallel the normal growth curve. Hence, the present study was intended to assess the levels of serum osteocalcin and serum insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) and compare...

Tomato Fruits Show Wide Phenomic Diversity but Fruit Developmental Genes Show Low Genomic Diversity

Domestication of tomato has resulted in large diversity in fruit phenotypes. An intensive phenotyping of 127 tomato accessions from 20 countries revealed extensive morphological diversity in fruit traits. The diversity in fruit traits clustered the accessions into nine classes and identified certain promising lines having desirable traits pertaining to total soluble salts (TSS...

A new kinetic model reveals the synergistic effect of E-, P- and A-sites on +1 ribosomal frameshifting

Programmed ribosomal frameshifting (PRF) is a process by which ribosomes produce two different polypeptides from the same mRNA. In this study, we propose three different kinetic models of +1 PRF, incorporating the effects of the ribosomal E-, P- and A-sites toward promoting efficient +1 frameshifting in Escherichia coli. Specifically, the timing of E-site tRNA dissociation is...
