We report the first complete genome sequence of a beta-proteobacterial nitrogen-fixing symbiont of legumes, Cupriavidus taiwanensis LMG19424. The genome consists of two chromosomes of size 3.42 Mb and 2.50 Mb, and a large symbiotic plasmid of 0.56 Mb. The C. taiwanensis genome displays an unexpected high similarity with the genome of the saprophytic(More)
We report the 897 kb sequence of a cluster of olfactory receptor (OR) genes located at the distal end of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I region on mouse chromosome 17 of strain 129/SvJ (H2bc). With additional information from the mouse genome draft sequence, we identified 59 OR loci (approximately 20% pseudogenes) in contrast to only 25(More)
BACKGROUND So-called "immunoprivileged sites" are tissues or organs where slow allograft rejection correlates with low levels of expression of MHC class I molecules. Whilst classical class I molecules are recognised by cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL), some MHC class I molecules are called "non-classical" because they exhibit low polymorphism and are not(More)
In this article, [1] figure 2 was generated using the pretty output of the GCG software suite. Residues in agreement with the consensus appear as-, whilst gaps are shown as dots. Because of inaccurate settings in the software when generating the figure originally published, however, Y vs F and W vs R differences between individual sequences and the(More)
