Mutation in mce operons attenuates Mycobacterium tuberculosis virulence.
On the Mycobacterium tuberculosis genome there are four mce operons, all of which are similar in sequence and organization, and code for putatively exported proteins. To investigate whether MceExpand
Arsenic metabolism in high altitude modern stromatolites revealed by metagenomic analysis
An in-depth analysis revealed a surprisingly diverse metabolism comprising all known types of As resistance and energy generating pathways, while the ars operon was the main mechanism and an important abundance of arsM genes was observed in selected phyla. Expand
Further analysis of VNTR and MIRU in the genome of Mycobacterium avium complex, and application to molecular epidemiology of isolates from South America.
Some of the VNTR-MIRU loci identified were useful to differentiate M. avium subsp. Expand
Draft Genome Sequence of Thermus sp. Isolate 2.9, Obtained from a Hot Water Spring Located in Salta, Argentina
The draft genome sequence of Thermus sp.9 was obtained from a hot water spring in Salta, Argentina and consists of 11 scaffolds of >10 kbp and 2,719 protein-coding sequences. Expand
First Genome Sequence of Leptospira interrogans Serovar Pomona, Isolated from a Bovine Abortion
The whole-genome sequence of Leptospira interrogans serovar Pomona strain AKRFB is reported, isolated from a bovine abortion during a leptospirosis outbreak in Argentina. Expand
Identification, Cloning and Expression of an Insecticide cry8 Gene from Bacillusthuringiensis INTA Fr7-4
A novel cry8 gene from B. thuringiensis strain INTA Fr7-4 from Argentina was characterized and its encoded protein, Cry8Qa2, is 1184 amino acids long and its sequence is more similar to those of Cry8F class. Expand
L-cysteine transporter-PCR to detect hydrogen sulfide-producing Campylobacter fetus
A novel multiplex-PCR is reported to differentiate C. fetus based on the evaluation of a deletion of an ATP-binding cassette-type L-Cys transporter that could be involved in hydrogen sulfide production, as previously described. Expand
Strategy for amplification and sequencing of insecticidal cry1A genes from Bacillus thuringiensis
A feasible and fully described strategy, with a detailed list of primers, for amplifying, cloning and sequencing known and potentially novel cry1A genes harboured by a Bacillus thuringiensis strainExpand
Single nucleotide polymorphisms in candidate genes and their relation with somatic cell scores in Argentinean dairy cattle
A set of single nucleotide polymorphisms in candidate genes for health and production traits are evaluated, and their association with the somatic cell score (SCS) as an indicator of mastitis in Argentinean dairy cattle is determined. Expand
Reconstruction and Characterization of Full-Length Begomovirus and Alphasatellite Genomes Infecting Pepper through Metagenomics
Six begomoviruses in single infections are revealed, including a new proposed species, named pepper blistering leaf virus (PepBLV), and a new alphasatellite associated with ToYSV, which was reported for the first time in Argentina. Expand
