A model conditional-suicide system to control genetically engineered microorganisms able to degrade substituted benzoates is reported. The system is based on two elements. One element consists of a fusion between the promoter of the Pseudomonas putida TOL plasmid-encoded meta-cleavage pathway operon (P(m)) and the lacI gene encoding Lac repressor plus xylS,(More)
Although the implication of genetic factors in cervical cancer development remains to be elucidated, accumulative epidemiological evidence suggests that polymorphisms of cytokine genes may be involved in the etiology of cervical carcinoma. Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) and interleukin-10 (IL-10) are two multifunctional cytokines implicated in(More)
Epidemiological evidence suggests that genetic factors, such as variants in cancer suppressor genes, may play an important role in the etiology of cervical carcinoma. TP53 is an outstanding cell cycle regulator, mutated in most human cancers, and RNASEL is thought to be involved in antiviral and apoptotic responses. To determine whether TP53 Arg72Pro and(More)
