Genome sequence of Halobacterium species NRC-1.
We report the complete sequence of an extreme halophile, Halobacterium sp. NRC-1, harboring a dynamic 2,571,010-bp genome containing 91 insertion sequences representing 12 families and organized intoExpand
Structure and function of archaeal box C/D sRNP core proteins
Nop56p and Nop58p are two core proteins of the box C/D snoRNPs that interact concurrently with fibrillarin and snoRNAs to function in enzyme assembly and catalysis. Here we report the 2.9 ÅExpand
The Complete Genome Sequence of Haloferax volcanii DS2, a Model Archaeon
Background Haloferax volcanii is an easily culturable moderate halophile that grows on simple defined media, is readily transformable, and has a relatively stable genome. This, in combination withExpand
Gene structure, organization, and expression in archaebacteria.
Major advances have recently been made in understanding the molecular biology of the archaebacteria. In this review, we compare the structure of protein and stable RNA-encoding genes cloned andExpand
In vivo definition of an archaeal promoter.
We have used a plasmid-based transcriptional reporter system to examine the transcriptional effects of 33 single point mutations in the box A region (TATA-like sequence) of the Haloferax volcaniiExpand
Archaeal Histones, Nucleosomes, and Transcription Initiation
Methanobacterium thermoautotrophicum and Metha-nobacterium formicicum, and five in Methanococcus and Charles J. Daniels Department of Microbiology jannaschii, two of which are plasmid-encoded (BultExpand
Is gene expression in Halobacterium NRC‐1 regulated by multiple TBP and TFB transcription factors?
Sir, Gene expression is regulated by different mechanisms in different organisms. The bacterial core RNA polymerase (a2bb 0) discriminates between subsets of promoters by binding different s factors.Expand
Characterization of two heat shock genes from Haloferax volcanii: a model system for transcription regulation in the Archaea.
The expression of two heat-responsive cct (chaperonin-containing Tcp-1) genes from the archaeon Haloferax volcanii was investigated at the transcription level. The cct1 and cct2 genes, which encodeExpand
Comparative analysis of ribonuclease P RNA structure in Archaea.
Although the structure of the catalytic RNA component of ribonuclease P has been well characterized in Bacteria, it has been little studied in other organisms, such as the Archaea. We have determinedExpand
Archaebacterial heat‐shock proteins
The response to heat shock was examined in seven archaebacterial strains from the genus Halobacterium. Upon heat shock each strain preferentially synthesized a limited number of proteins which fellExpand
