Replication Origin: A unique DNA sequence of a replicon at which DNA REPLICATION is initiated and proceeds bidirectionally or unidirectionally. It contains the sites where the first separation of the complementary strands occurs, a primer RNA is synthesized, and the switch from primer RNA to DNA synthesis takes place. (Rieger et al., Glossary of Genetics: Classical and Molecular, 5th ed)DNA Replication: The process by which a DNA molecule is duplicated.Plasmids: Extrachromosomal, usually CIRCULAR DNA molecules that are self-replicating and transferable from one organism to another. They are found in a variety of bacterial, archaeal, fungal, algal, and plant species. They are used in GENETIC ENGINEERING as CLONING VECTORS.DNA Helicases: Proteins that catalyze the unwinding of duplex DNA during replication by binding cooperatively to single-stranded regions of DNA or to short regions of duplex DNA that are undergoing transient opening. In addition DNA helicases are DNA-dependent ATPases that harness the free energy of ATP hydrolysis to translocate DNA strands.DNA, Viral: Deoxyribonucleic acid that makes up the genetic material of viruses.Diterpenes, Kaurane: A group of DITERPENES cyclized into four rings.Replicon: Any DNA sequence capable of independent replication or a molecule that possesses a REPLICATION ORIGIN and which is therefore potentially capable of being replicated in a suitable cell.

EC 2.7.7.-.Amino Acids, Basic: Amino acids with side chains that are positively charged at physiological pH.DNA Footprinting: A method for determining the sequence specificity of DNA-binding proteins. DNA footprinting utilizes a DNA damaging agent (either a chemical reagent or a nuclease) which cleaves DNA at every base pair. DNA cleavage is inhibited where the ligand binds to DNA. (from Rieger et al., Glossary of Genetics: Classical and Molecular, 5th ed)Antigens, Viral, Tumor: Those proteins recognized by antibodies from serum of animals bearing tumors induced by viruses; these proteins are presumably coded for by the nucleic acids of the same viruses that caused the neoplastic transformation.Bacteriocin Plasmids: Plasmids encoding bacterial exotoxins (BACTERIOCINS).DNA, Mitochondrial: Double-stranded DNA of MITOCHONDRIA.

They catalyze the endonucleolytic cleavage of DNA sequences which lack the species-specific methylation pattern in the host cell's DNA. Cleavage yields random or specific double-stranded fragments with terminal 5'-phosphates. The function of restriction enzymes is to destroy any foreign DNA that invades the host cell. Most have been studied in bacterial systems, but a few have been found in eukaryotic organisms. They are also used as tools for the systematic dissection and mapping of chromosomes, in the determination of base sequences of DNAs, and have made it possible to splice and recombine genes from one organism into the genome of another. EC 3.21.1.Restriction Mapping: Use of restriction endonucleases to analyze and generate a physical map of genomes, genes, or other segments of DNA.DNA, Single-Stranded: A single chain of deoxyribonucleotides that occurs in some bacteria and viruses.

The Eubaculovirinae, which contain polyhedron-shaped inclusion bodies, have two genera: NUCLEOPOLYHEDROVIRUS and GRANULOVIRUS. Baculovirus vectors are used for expression of foreign genes in insects.Genetic Vectors: DNA molecules capable of autonomous replication within a host cell and into which other DNA sequences can be inserted and thus amplified. Many are derived from PLASMIDS; BACTERIOPHAGES; or VIRUSES. They are used for transporting foreign genes into recipient cells. Genetic vectors possess a functional replicator site and contain GENETIC MARKERS to facilitate their selective recognition.Nucleoproteins: Proteins conjugated with nucleic acids.Repetitive Sequences, Nucleic Acid: Sequences of DNA or RNA that occur in multiple copies. There are several types: INTERSPERSED REPETITIVE SEQUENCES are copies of transposable elements (DNA TRANSPOSABLE ELEMENTS or RETROELEMENTS) dispersed throughout the genome. TERMINAL REPEAT SEQUENCES flank both ends of another sequence, for example, the long terminal repeats (LTRs) on RETROVIRUSES. Variations may be direct repeats, those occurring in the same direction, or inverted repeats, those opposite to each other in direction. TANDEM REPEAT SEQUENCES are copies which lie adjacent to each other, direct or inverted (INVERTED REPEAT SEQUENCES).Coliphages: Viruses whose host is Escherichia coli.Models, Genetic: Theoretical representations that simulate the behavior or activity of genetic processes or phenomena. They include the use of mathematical equations, computers, and other electronic equipment.Genome, Viral: The complete genetic complement contained in a DNA or RNA molecule in a virus.Cell Line: Established cell cultures that have the potential to propagate indefinitely.Suppression, Genetic: Mutation process that restores the wild-type PHENOTYPE in an organism possessing a mutationally altered GENOTYPE.

They are grouped into multiple genera, but the viruses are highly host-species specific and tissue-restricted. They are commonly divided into hundreds of papillomavirus "types", each with specific gene function and gene control regions, despite sequence homology. Human papillomaviruses are found in the genera ALPHAPAPILLOMAVIRUS; BETAPAPILLOMAVIRUS; GAMMAPAPILLOMAVIRUS; and MUPAPILLOMAVIRUS.DNA, Superhelical: Circular duplex DNA isolated from viruses, bacteria and mitochondria in supercoiled or supertwisted form.

The effects of denaturation on RNA are similar though less pronounced and largely reversible.Transcription, Genetic: The biosynthesis of RNA carried out on a template of DNA. The biosynthesis of DNA from an RNA template is called REVERSE TRANSCRIPTION.RNA Nucleotidyltransferases: Enzymes that catalyze the template-directed incorporation of ribonucleotides into an RNA chain. EC 2.7.7.-.Genes, Viral: The functional hereditary units of VIRUSES.Deoxyribonuclease I: An enzyme capable of hydrolyzing highly polymerized DNA by splitting phosphodiester linkages, preferentially adjacent to a pyrimidine nucleotide. This catalyzes endonucleolytic cleavage of DNA yielding 5'-phosphodi- and oligonucleotide end-products. The enzyme has a preference for double-stranded DNA.Cloning, Molecular: The insertion of recombinant DNA molecules from prokaryotic and/or eukaryotic sources into a replicating vehicle, such as a plasmid or virus vector, and the introduction of the resultant hybrid molecules into recipient cells without altering the viability of those cells.DNA, Circular: Any of the covalently closed DNA molecules found in bacteria, many viruses, mitochondria, plastids, and plasmids. Small, polydisperse circular DNA's have also been observed in a number of eukaryotic organisms and are suggested to have homology with chromosomal DNA and the capacity to be inserted into, and excised from, chromosomal DNA. It is a fragment of DNA formed by a process of looping out and deletion, containing a constant region of the mu heavy chain and the 3'-part of the mu switch region. Circular DNA is a normal product of rearrangement among gene segments encoding the variable regions of immunoglobulin light and heavy chains, as well as the T-cell receptor. (Riger et al., Glossary of Genetics, 5th ed & Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)Protein Binding: The process in which substances, either endogenous or exogenous, bind to proteins, peptides, enzymes, protein precursors, or allied compounds.

The dried form is used as a dietary supplement.Amino Acid Sequence: The order of amino acids as they occur in a polypeptide chain. This is referred to as the primary structure of proteins. It is of fundamental importance in determining PROTEIN CONFORMATION.Enhancer Elements, Genetic: Cis-acting DNA sequences which can increase transcription of genes. Enhancers can usually function in either orientation and at various distances from a promoter.Recombination, Genetic: Production of new arrangements of DNA by various mechanisms such as assortment and segregation, CROSSING OVER; GENE CONVERSION; GENETIC TRANSFORMATION; GENETIC CONJUGATION; GENETIC TRANSDUCTION; or mixed infection of viruses.Sequence Homology, Nucleic Acid: The sequential correspondence of nucleotides in one nucleic acid molecule with those of another nucleic acid molecule. Sequence homology is an indication of the genetic relatedness of different organisms and gene function.Cercopithecus aethiops: A species of CERCOPITHECUS containing three subspecies: C. tantalus, C. pygerythrus, and C. sabeus. They are found in the forests and savannah of Africa. The African green monkey (C. pygerythrus) is the natural host of SIMIAN IMMUNODEFICIENCY VIRUS and is used in AIDS research.Deoxyribonucleases, Type II Site-Specific: Enzyme systems containing a single subunit and requiring only magnesium for endonucleolytic activity. The corresponding modification methylases are separate enzymes. The systems recognize specific short DNA sequences and cleave either within, or at a short specific distance from, the recognition sequence to give specific double-stranded fragments with terminal 5'-phosphates. Enzymes from different microorganisms with the same specificity are called isoschizomers. EC, Recombinant: Biologically active DNA which has been formed by the in vitro joining of segments of DNA from different sources. It includes the recombination joint or edge of a heteroduplex region where two recombining DNA molecules are connected.DNA-(Apurinic or Apyrimidinic Site) Lyase: A DNA repair enzyme that catalyses the excision of ribose residues at apurinic and apyrimidinic DNA sites that can result from the action of DNA GLYCOSYLASES. The enzyme catalyzes a beta-elimination reaction in which the C-O-P bond 3' to the apurinic or apyrimidinic site in DNA is broken, leaving a 3'-terminal unsaturated sugar and a product with a terminal 5'-phosphate. This enzyme was previously listed under EC Viruses whose hosts are bacterial cells.Proteins: Linear POLYPEPTIDES that are synthesized on RIBOSOMES and may be further modified, crosslinked, cleaved, or assembled into complex proteins with several subunits. The specific sequence of AMINO ACIDS determines the shape the polypeptide will take, during PROTEIN FOLDING, and the function of the protein.Genes, Fungal: The functional hereditary units of FUNGI.Dimerization: The process by which two molecules of the same chemical composition form a condensation product or polymer.Gene Expression Regulation, Viral: Any of the processes by which cytoplasmic factors influence the differential control of gene action in viruses.Transcription Factors: Endogenous substances, usually proteins, which are effective in the initiation, stimulation, or termination of the genetic transcription process.Repressor Proteins: Proteins which maintain the transcriptional quiescence of specific GENES or OPERONS. Classical repressor proteins are DNA-binding proteins that are normally bound to the OPERATOR REGION of an operon, or the ENHANCER SEQUENCES of a gene until a signal occurs that causes their release.Plants, Toxic: Plants or plant parts which are harmful to man or other animals.N-Glycosyl Hydrolases: A class of enzymes involved in the hydrolysis of the N-glycosidic bond of nitrogen-linked sugars.DNA: A deoxyribonucleotide polymer that is the primary genetic material of all cells. Eukaryotic and prokaryotic organisms normally contain DNA in a double-stranded state, yet several important biological processes transiently involve single-stranded regions. DNA, which consists of a polysugar-phosphate backbone possessing projections of purines (adenine and guanine) and pyrimidines (thymine and cytosine), forms a double helix that is held together by hydrogen bonds between these purines and pyrimidines (adenine to thymine and guanine to cytosine).Microscopy, Electron: Microscopy using an electron beam, instead of light, to visualize the sample, thereby allowing much greater magnification. The interactions of ELECTRONS with specimens are used to provide information about the fine structure of that specimen. In TRANSMISSION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY the reactions of the electrons that are transmitted through the specimen are imaged. In SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPY an electron beam falls at a non-normal angle on the specimen and the image is derived from the reactions occurring above the plane of the specimen.DNA Mutational Analysis: Biochemical identification of mutational changes in a nucleotide sequence.Recombinant Fusion Proteins: Recombinant proteins produced by the GENETIC TRANSLATION of fused genes formed by the combination of NUCLEIC ACID REGULATORY SEQUENCES of one or more genes with the protein coding sequences of one or more genes.Saccharomyces cerevisiae Proteins: Proteins obtained from the species SACCHAROMYCES CEREVISIAE. The function of specific proteins from this organism are the subject of intense scientific interest and have been used to derive basic understanding of the functioning similar proteins in higher eukaryotes.Oligodeoxyribonucleotides: A group of deoxyribonucleotides (up to 12) in which the phosphate residues of each deoxyribonucleotide act as bridges in forming diester linkages between the deoxyribose moieties.RNA: A polynucleotide consisting essentially of chains with a repeating backbone of phosphate and ribose units to which nitrogenous bases are attached. RNA is unique among biological macromolecules in that it can encode genetic information, serve as an abundant structural component of cells, and also possesses catalytic activity. (Rieger et al., Glossary of Genetics: Classical and Molecular, 5th ed)Sequence Alignment: The arrangement of two or more amino acid or base sequences from an organism or organisms in such a way as to align areas of the sequences sharing common properties. The degree of relatedness or homology between the sequences is predicted computationally or statistically based on weights assigned to the elements aligned between the sequences. This in turn can serve as a potential indicator of the genetic relatedness between the organisms.Kinetics: The rate dynamics in chemical or physical systems.Cell Nucleus: Within a eukaryotic cell, a membrane-limited body which contains chromosomes and one or more nucleoli (CELL NUCLEOLUS). The nuclear membrane consists of a double unit-type membrane which is perforated by a number of pores; the outermost membrane is continuous with the ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM. A cell may contain more than one nucleus. (From Singleton & Sainsbury, Dictionary of Microbiology and Molecular Biology, 2d ed)Mitochondria: Semiautonomous, self-reproducing organelles that occur in the cytoplasm of all cells of most, but not all, eukaryotes. Each mitochondrion is surrounded by a double limiting membrane. The inner membrane is highly invaginated, and its projections are called cristae. Mitochondria are the sites of the reactions of oxidative phosphorylation, which result in the formation of ATP. They contain distinctive RIBOSOMES, transfer RNAs (RNA, TRANSFER); AMINO ACYL T RNA SYNTHETASES; and elongation and termination factors. Mitochondria depend upon genes within the nucleus of the cells in which they reside for many essential messenger RNAs (RNA, MESSENGER). Mitochondria are believed to have arisen from aerobic bacteria that established a symbiotic relationship with primitive protoeukaryotes. (King & Stansfield, A Dictionary of Genetics, 4th ed)Cattle: Domesticated bovine animals of the genus Bos, usually kept on a farm or ranch and used for the production of meat or dairy products or for heavy labor.Transfection: The uptake of naked or purified DNA by CELLS, usually meaning the process as it occurs in eukaryotic cells. It is analogous to bacterial transformation (TRANSFORMATION, BACTERIAL) and both are routinely employed in GENE TRANSFER TECHNIQUES.Nuclear Proteins: Proteins found in the nucleus of a cell. Do not confuse with NUCLEOPROTEINS which are proteins conjugated with nucleic acids, that are not necessarily present in the nucleus.

  • There were important divisions between Māori at the time of the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840. (
  • The purchase of land under the terms of the Treaty of Waitangi was too slow a process for many Pakeha and too rapid for many Maori. (

  • The daily Aksam reported that Ankara "pleaded" with officials in New Zealand not to send Maori haka dancers to the Gallipoli Peninsula in north-western Turkey, where the ill-fated battle occurred in 1915. (

  • Both research and practice in the social sciences regarding Māori people seek to use a Kaupapa Māori ( Māori research and practice platform) approach. (
  • Kaupapa Māori attempts to ensure that cultural sensitivity is infused from the conceptualization of an intervention (e.g., psychological skills training, psychological intervention) through to the design, delivery, evaluation, final analysis, and presentation of the intervention or research project. (
  • Therefore, an effective sport psychology consulting program for an athlete who lives her or his life from a Te Ao Māori ( Māori worldview) and tīkanga Māori ( Māori cultural practices) perspective needs to be constructed as a Māori -for- Māori intervention based within a Kaupapa Māori framework.

  • Psychological models and interventions aiming to improve outcomes for Māori tend to be founded on a 'culture-as-cure' model. (
  • This view promotes cultural efficacy as a critical resilience factor that should improve outcomes for Māori. (
  • However, research modeling the outcomes of increased cultural efficacy for Indigenous peoples, such as Māori, remains limited. (
  • Our data support an opposing outcomes model in which Māori cultural efficacy predicts satisfaction with personal aspects of life, but may simultaneously decrease satisfaction with the nation and methods of governance for Māori peoples. (
  • Dr Wyeth and colleagues investigated the long-term disability outcomes for Māori ACC claimants two years after injury, and the factors that contribute to this. (

  • A group of talented Māori and Pasifika pupils from around the country descended on Victoria University of Wellington last week to get a taste of tertiary-level science. (
  • That is not the usual definition of 'indigenous' which would normally refer to peoples who are colonised within their homelands and who are now governed as a minority group, but it is a normal relationship to group Māori and Pasifika poets given our shared colonial histories (only Tonga was not colonised) as British subjects.

  • However, while the physical and cultural characteristics were sufficiently apparent for Maori to see themselves as culturally or racially different to Pakeha, they did not initially "imagine" themselves as a nation or people, bur rather continued to fie identity to tribal groupings. (
  • The impact of print on society has long been acknowledged, and indeed anticipated by the early Pakeha purveyors of printed material to Maori. (
  • It is outside, in the pragmatic struggle with the challenges of the Pakeha world, that a "Maori" self-identity has more relevance. (
  • Their Pakeha neighbours also have first memories 3.5 years old, with Maori first memories at least 10 months earlier. (

  • The report did not look into setting up a body like Auckland Council's Maori statutory board, saying it would require a law change and central government had "limited appetite" for such boards. (

  • Another three Māori ancestors were collected, one perhaps by Schauinsland. (
  • We are also glad and grateful that a delegation from the Te Papa is with us in Bremen today to take the ancestors of the Māori and Moriori back to their home! (

  • The pilot study investigated whether digital storytelling could be used as a research method to learn about Māori whanau experiences of providing end of life care for their kaumatua. (
  • Whanau (extended families) are the fabric of Maori society. (
  • Maori women are recognised as kaitiaki (guardians) of their whanau wellbeing, yet this is a difficult role to undertake when abuse and violence occur within a whanau. (
  • The physical, spiritual, and psychological effects of violence are harmful and compromise Maori women's ability to be whanau kaitiaki. (

  • Allen shows how both Maori and Native Americans resisted the assimilationist tide rising out of World War II and how, in the 1960s and 1970s, they each experienced a renaissance of political and cultural activism and literary production that culminated in the formation of the first general assembly of the World Council of Indigenous Peoples. (
  • Allen's second focus is on the discourse of treaties between American Indians and the U.S. government and between Maori and Great Britain, which he contends offers strong legal and moral bases from which these indigenous minorities can argue land and resource rights as well as cultural and identity politics.

  • Of this group almost half (46.5 per cent) identified Māori as their only ethnicity, with the remainder identifying alongside one or more other ethnicities. (
  • If there are difficulties for Maori or any other group in dealing with the Local Government process, then these need to be addressed. (
  • The national Māori flag was developed by members of a group named Te Kawariki in 1989. (
  • Lea stated that unpublished studies had proved that Maori had the highest prevalence of this strength gene which was discovered by United States researchers but was never linked to an ethnic group. (

  • 1 This poetic saying refers to Māori descent from Polynesia, specifically the island of Ra'iatea in the Tahitian island group. (
  • Māori 1 are the indigenous ethnic group of New Zealand. (
  • The Conference, organised by the University's Te Arai Palliative Care Research Group (led by Director Professor Merryn Gott) is intended to brief its audience on the research done by the team and the issues they see for End of Life carers, both in quality of care and end of life care for Maori. (
  • The Māori King Movement , called the Kīngitanga or Kiingitanga in Māori , is a movement that arose among some of the Māori tribes of New Zealand in the central North Island in the 1850s, to establish a role similar in status to that of the monarch of the British colonists, as a way of halting the alienation of Māori land. (
  • The Māori monarch operates in a non-constitutional capacity with no legal or judicial power within the New Zealand government. (
  • His personal advisor and spokesperson for the Office of the King Rangi Whakaruru said there had been a lot of preparation ahead of the surgery for the seventh Māori monarch and one of his successors. (
  • From 1990 to 1999 Māori and Pacific children were 2.3 and 3.7 times, respectively, more likely to be admitted to hospital for a skin infection than children of other ethnicities. (
  • It also made clear that there is no longer any ethical justification for retaining the ancestral remains of the Moriori and Māori in our collections. (
  • To add, this is also a bittersweet occasion, as our repatriation work reveals newly established colonial museums, alongside visiting natural historians from Europe, actively participated in the trade of Māori and Moriori remains, "taken" from wāhi tapu (sacred repositories). (
  • These Moriori and Māori ancestral remains are part of 59 Māori and Moriori ancestral remains returning from four institutions in Europe. (
  • These publications build on findings from Te Puni Kōkiri's literature review Measuring Performance and Effectiveness for Māori: Key themes from the literature. (
  • Whyte said these findings were consistent with Maori legend. (
  • Offering a rare insight into New Zealand's pre-European history, the country's first and only traditional Māori garden is located at Hamilton Gardens. (
  • Disproportionate numbers of Māori face significant economic and social obstacles, and generally have lower life expectancies and incomes compared with other New Zealand ethnic groups. (
  • There are significant health disparities between Māori and non-Māori with asthma , a pattern seen between other ethnic populations. (
  • The framework is based upon current literature in the field of quality improvement and research on improving access to health services for Māori , indigenous peoples and minority ethnic groups. (
  • The health burden of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) for Māori and Pacific peoples represents one of the most significant healthcare disparities in New Zealand. (
  • Māori and Pacific families are most at risk, therefore targeted education, prevention and control interventions are necessary in order to reduce this burden of disease. (
  • Dr Wyeth says the team found that pre-injury and injury-related factors predicted long-term disability and should be focused on to reduce the longer-term disability burden for Māori. (
  • This suggests that the subsequent injury burden for Māori is considerable, and that preventive opportunities are potentially being missed," Dr. Wyeth says. (
  • The burden is considerable, therefore more emphasis needs to be placed on understanding the pathways after injury and strategies for prevention, specifically of subsequent injuries for Māori. (
  • The results are discussed in terms of the historical record of Maori women's participation in netball, majority-minority relations in New Zealand, and several methodological issues and concerns that attend "stacking" investigations. (
  • The role of the Crown and Māori in making decisions about taonga and mātauranga Māori. (
  • I can foresee it being useful in libraries for cataloguing and interloans, and for Māori as a site for taonga. (

  • The growth of both the carving school and Te Whakarewarewa Valley's tourism interests led to a joining of the two in 1963 under the Rotorua Māori Arts and Crafts Institute Act. (
  • The research found that in addition to the alcohol genes, female Maori have other genetic markers which confirm their ancient Asian origin. (
  • Given the significance of storytelling to Māori, tapping into its wisdom to inform research may lead to innovative discoveries. (
  • Landcare Research has developed a Māori land visualisation tool online. (
  • This new research provides strong support for the recent moves away from SK as a standard treatment for heart attacks in rural New Zealand, particularly in predominantly Maori communities. (
