• screen
  • RIC-8 was discovered during a genetic screen of Caenorhabditis elegans that was designed to uncover mutants with defective neurotransmitter release ( 3 ). (sciencemag.org)
  • provide
  • The mutations presented here might provide a genetic framework to aid in the understanding of the etiology of degenerative and physiological disorders within the CNS and the activation of inappropriate programmed cell death. (zfin.org)
  • activity
  • This is, to our knowledge, the first molecular genetic characterization of NBAD hydrolase and carcinine hydrolase activity in any organism and is central to the understanding of pigmentation and photoreceptor function. (nih.gov)
  • activities
  • To test whether CG12120 possesses these predicted activities, we produced recombinant CG12120 protein using a baculovirus expression system in insect cell culture (Figure 4). (nih.gov)
