The nef gene, which encodes related cytoplasmic proteins in both human (HIV) and simian (SIV) immunodeficiency viruses is dispensable for viral replication in vitro. In contrast, in vivo experiments have revealed that SIV nef is required for efficient viral replication and development of AIDS in SIV infected rhesus monkeys, thus indicating that nef plays an(More)
As a nitrogen-fixing bacterium, Bradyrhizobium japonicum can establish a symbiotic relationship with the soybean plant (Glycine max). To be a successful symbiont, B. japonicum must deal with plant defense responses, such as an oxidative burst. Our previous functional genomics study showed that carQ (bll1028) encoding extracytoplasmic function (ECF) sigma(More)
