Translocation of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) fragments to the nucleus and insertion of those fragments into nuclear DNA has been observed in several organisms ranging from yeast to plants and mammals. Disruption of specific nuclear genes by de novo insertions of...

A simple and efficient method for synthesizing long, site-specifically modified RNA molecules was developed whereby segments of RNA were joined with the use of bacteriophage T4 DNA ligase. A single hydrogen or O-methyl group was substituted for the 2'-hydroxyl group...

A series of 2,6-disubstituted aminoalkoxypyrimidine carboxamides (AAPCs) with potent inhibition of bacterial NAD(+)-dependent DNA ligase was discovered through the use of structure-guided design. Two subsites in the NAD(+)-binding pocket were explored to modulate enzyme inhibitory potency: a hydrophobic selectivity region...

To understand complex biological systems, such as the development of multicellular organisms, it is important to characterize the gene expression dynamics. However, there is currently no universal technique for targeted insertion of reporter genes and quantitative imaging in multicellular model...
