In the present paper, we report that transcription affects the location of a DNA target in Escherichia coli K-12. A strain whose chromosome had been engineered to encode a lac repressor-GFP (green fluorescent protein) fusion was used as a host for a low copy number plasmid that carries an array of five lac operator sites. Individual cells of this strain(More)
Polyamine-biosynthesis activity is known to be negatively regulated by intracellular polyamine pools. Accordingly, treatment of cultured L1210 cells with 10 microM-spermine rapidly and significantly lowered ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) and S-adenosylmethionine decarboxylase (AdoMetDC) activities in a sequential manner. By contrast, treatment for 48 h with(More)
Methods are described for the isolation and purification of pepsin D, an enzyme which accounts for about 10% of the enzymic activity in commercial preparations of pepsin. Pepsin D is similar to pepsin in having a molecular weight of about 35000, the same C-terminal amino acid sequence, and an N-terminal isoleucine residue. It differs in having no phosphate(More)
