In line with the hypothesis, in the terrorism media exposure with the primary sequence, the therapeutic intervention yielded lower posttest levels of state anxiety and state anger than did the control intervention.
It has been proposed that the receptor binding sites on Cry l proteins must have two basic characteristics: a highly conserved structure, because the Cry l proteins have similar primary sequences and 3D structures and can recognise similar APNs found in the midguts of several lepidopteran insects, and a nonconserved structure, because the Cryl toxins also exhibit highly specific insecticidal activity and can distinguish host species in the lepidopteran range (Atsumi et al.
In the context of arachnid molecular phylogenetics, to understand both the potential utility and drawbacks in the use of any genetic marker, it is important to have knowledge of the amount of variation in both the primary sequence and secondary structures across taxa at different levels.
In this study, we demonstrate unbiased determination of viral subtype and lineage by generation of primary sequence using random nucleic acid amplification and resequencing microarray technology.
