The genes encoding malate synthase (glcB) and isocitrate lyase (aceA) and a 240-bp open reading frame (SMc00767) located downstream of aceA were isolated and functionally characterized in Sinorhizobium meliloti. Independent and double interposon mutants of each gene were constructed, and the corresponding phenotypes were analyzed. aceA mutants failed to(More)
The identification of an agonist peptide (YLSGADLNL, designated CAP1-6D) to an immunodominant cytotoxic T-lymphocyte (CTL) epitope (designated CAP1) of human carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) has previously been reported. The agonist peptide harbors a single amino acid substitution at a non-MHC anchor residue and is proposed to exert its effects at the level(More)
Proteins controlling cell growth, differentiation, apoptosis, and oncogenic stress are often deregulated in tumor cells. However, whether such deregulations affect tumor behavior remains poorly understood in many tumor types. We recently showed that the urothelium-specific expression of activated H-ras and SV40 T antigen in transgenic mice produced two(More)
