Optimization of enzymatic fragmentation is crucial to maximize genome coverage: a comparison of library preparation methods for Illumina sequencing

Teodora Ribarska, Pål Marius Bjørnstad, Arvind Y. M. Sundaram & Gregor D. Gilfillan
Abstract Background Novel commercial kits for whole genome library preparation for next-generation sequencing on Illumina platforms promise shorter workflows, lower inputs and cost savings. Time savings are achieved by employing enzymatic DNA fragmentation and by combining end-repair and tailing reactions. Fewer cleanup steps also allow greater DNA input flexibility (1 ng-1 μg), PCR-free options from 100 ng DNA, and lower price as compared to the well-established sonication and tagmentation-based DNA library preparation kits. Results We...

Isobutanol, a four-carbon alcohol, is considered as a superior candidate as a biofuel for its high energy density with suitable chemical and physical characteristics. The unicellular cyanobacterium Synechocystis PCC 6803 has been successfully engineered for photosynthetic isobutanol production from CO2 and solar energy in a direct process. Results Heterologous expression of α-ketoisovalerate decarboxylase (KivdS286T) is sufficient for isobutanol synthesis via...

Rapamycin, Acarbose and 17α-estradiol share common mechanisms regulating the MAPK pathways involved in intracellular signaling and inflammation

Lily Wink, Richard A. Miller & Gonzalo G. Garcia
Abstract Background Rapamycin (Rapa), acarbose (ACA), and 17α-estradiol (17aE2, males only) have health benefits that increase lifespan of mice. Little is known about how these three agents alter the network of pathways downstream of insulin/IGF1 signals as well as inflammatory/stress responses. Results ACA, Rapa, and 17aE2 (in males, but not in females) oppose age-related increases in the MEK1- ERK1/2-MNK1/2 cascade, and thus reduce phosphorylation of eIF4E, a key component of cap-dependent translation. In parallel, these...

Plasmonic Tamm modes in periodic stubbed waveguides: Analytical and numerical study

Yamina Rezzouk, Madiha Amrani, Soufyane Khattou, El Houssaine EL BOUDOUTI & Bahram Djafari Rouhani
We investigate both analytically and numerically the existence of localized surface modes, the so-called Tamm states, in a one-dimensional (1D) comb-like plasmonic bandgap structure. We propose a new and versatile platform based on a periodic array of stubs grafted along a metal-insulator-metal (MIM) waveguide. By considering a semi-infinite structure in which we modify the length of the stub at the surface, we show the existence of surface states inside the bandgaps of the periodic structure...
