Stringent chemical and thermal regulation of recombinant gene expression by vaccinia virus vectors in mammalian cells.
We developed a stringently regulated expression system for mammalian cells that uses (i) the RNA polymerase, phi 10 promoter, and T phi transcriptional terminator of bacteriophage T7; (ii) the lacExpand

Disparate responses to oxidative stress in saprophytic and pathogenic mycobacteria.
To persist in macrophages and in granulomatous caseous lesions, pathogenic mycobacteria must be equipped to withstand the action of toxic oxygen metabolites. In Gram-negative bacteria, the OxyRExpand
