Genes acrAB encode a multidrug efflux pump in Escherichia coli. We have previously reported that transcription of acrAB is increased under general stress conditions (i.e. 4% ethanol, 0.5 M NaCl, and the stationary phase in Luria-Bertani medium). In this study, lacZ transcriptional fusions and an in vitro gel mobility shift assay have been utilized to study(More)
The biosynthesis of pigments (carotenoids and bacteriochlorophylls) in the photosynthetic bacterium Rhodobacter capsulatus is regulated by the oxygen concentration in the environment. However, the mechanism of this regulation has remained obscure. In this study, transcriptional fusions of the bchCXYZ promoter region to lacZ were used to identify the(More)
We have completely sequenced two patatin genomic clones Isolated from a genomic library of the potato (Solarium tuberosum L.) cultivar Superior. Comparison of the sequences to the full-length patatin cDNA, pGMOl (1) permits the assignment of Intron-exon boundaries. Each gene 1s Interrupted by six Introns that vary greatly in length between the two clones.(More)
The temporal expression of ten clustered genes required for carotenoid (crt) and bacteriochlorophyll (bch) biosynthesis was examined during the transition from aerobic respiration to anaerobiosis requisite for the development of the photosynthetic membrane in the bacterium Rhodobacter capsulatus. Accumulation of crtA, crtC, crtD, crtE, crtF, crtK, bchC and(More)
Megakaryocytes (MKs) are one of the few cell types that become polyploid; however, the mechanisms by which these cells are designated to become polyploid are not fully understood. In this investigation, we successfully established two relatively synchronous polyploid cell models by inducing Dami and CMK cells with SP600125. We found that SP600125 induced(More)
