OBJECTIVE The Working Group on Civilian Biodefense has developed consensus-based recommendations for measures to be taken by medical and public health professionals if tularemia is used as aExpand
Homologous plant and bacterial proteins chaperone oligomeric protein assembly
Chaperonins comprise a class of molecular chaperones that are found in chloroplasts, mitochondria and prokaryotes and are implicated in the assembly of the oligomeric enzyme ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase-oxygenase, which catalyses photosynthetic CO2-fixation in higher plants. Expand

Reported distribution of Ixodes scapularis and Ixodes pacificus (Acari: Ixodidae) in the United States.
A national map of the distribution of the vectors of B. burgdorferi to humans (Ixodes scapularis Say and Ixodes pacificus Cooley & Kohls ticks) was developed, finding populations with established populations were most concentrated in the northeastern, upper northcentral, and west-coastal states but were also clustered in southeastern and Gulf-coastsal states.
