Phenotype microarrays for high-throughput phenotypic testing and assay of gene function.
The bacterium Escherichia coli is used as a model cellular system to test and validate a new technology called Phenotype MicroArrays (PMs). PM technology is a high-throughput technology forExpand

Phenotype microarray analysis of Escherichia coli K-12 mutants with deletions of all two-component systems.
Two-component systems are the most common mechanism of transmembrane signal transduction in bacteria. A typical system consists of a histidine kinase and a partner response regulator. The histidineExpand

Positive selection for loss of tetracycline resistance.
A simple technique has been devised that allows direct plate selection of tetracycline-sensitive clones from a predominantly tetracycline-resistant population. The technique is especially useful inExpand

Generalized indicator plate for genetic, metabolic, and taxonomic studies with microorganisms.
We have developed an indicator plate that works well for diverse types of substrates and microorganisms. The plates are inexpensive and easy to prepare. The essential components are agar, buffer,Expand

ZTP (5-amino 4-imidazole carboxamide riboside 5′-triphosphate): A proposed alarmone for 10-formyl-tetrahydrofolate deficiency
Starvation of Salmonella typhimurium for folate in six different ways triggers the intracellular accumulation of a novel ribotide, 5-amino 4-imidazole carboxamide riboside 5'-triphosphate (ZTP).Expand
