Automatic simulation of RNA editing in plants for the identification of novel putative Open Reading Frames

Fabio Fassetti, Claudia Giallombardo, Ofelia Leone, Luigi Palopoli, Simona E Rombo, Pierluigi Ruffolo & Adolfo Saiardi
In plant mitochondria an essential mechanism for gene expression is RNA editing, often influencing the synthesis of functional proteins. RNA editing alters the linearity of genetic information transfer, intro- ducing differences between RNAs and their coding DNA sequences that hind both experimental and computational research of genes. Thus common software tools for gene search, successfully exploited to find canonic genes, often can fail in discovering genes encrypted in the genome of plants. In this work...

A historical legacy of antibiotic utilization on bacterial seed banks in sediments

Laura Madueño, Christophe Paul, Thomas Junier, Zhanna Bayrychenko, Sevasti Filippidou, Karin Beck, Gilbert Greub, Helmut Bürgmann & Pilar Junier
The introduction of antibiotics for both medical and non-medical purposes has had a positive effect in human welfare and agricultural output in the past century. However, there is also an important legacy in the use and disposal of antimicrobial agents in natural ecosystems. This historical legacy was investigated by quantifying two antibiotic resistance genes (ARG) conferring resistance to tetracycline (tet(W)) and sulfonamide (sul1) in bacterial seed bank DNA in sediments. The industrial introduction of antibiotics...

A comparison of chloroplast genome sequences in Aconitum (Ranunculaceae): a traditional herbal medicinal genus

Hanghui Kong, Wanzhen Liu, Gang Yao & Wei Gong
The herbal medicinal genus Aconitum L., belonging to the Ranunculaceae family, represents the earliest diverging lineage within the eudicots. It currently comprises of two subgenera, A. subgenus Lycoctonum and A. subg. Aconitum. The complete chloroplast (cp) genome sequences were characterized in three species: A. angustius, A. finetianum, and A. sinomontanum in subg. Lycoctonum and compared to other Aconitum species to clarify their phylogenetic relationship and provide molecular information for utilization of Aconitum species particularly in...
