UV-inducible precise excision of transposons is a specific SOS-mutagenesis process. It deals with the deletion formation which has previously been demonstrated to involve direct or inverted IS-sequences of transposons. The process was used for revisiting the targeted and untargeted SOS-mutability and its relationship to the key genes for SOS-mutagenesis:(More)
A total of 103 blood samples collected from wild small mammals captured in the Prioksko-Terrasny Reserve on the south of Moscow region were studied to determine the bartonellae prevalence. The examined species were the yellow-necked mice Apodemus flavicollis (35 samples), the European wood mouse Apodemus uralensis (10 samples), the bank vole Clethrionomys(More)
AIM Determine the possibility of Iysogenization of Escherichia coli single strain DNA (ssDNA) by 1ø7 bacteriophage from the Microviridae family and determine the role of phage lø7 lysogeny in genetic variability of these bacteria. MATERIALS AND METHODS A method of E. coli K12 lysogenization by phage lø7 was developed. A spot-test for the control of(More)
Induction of the tetracycline-resistance genes function by the inducer of the DNA-repair and mutability SOS-system, UV-light, has been tested. Activity of the tet-genes residing on the plasmid RP4 in Escherichia coli cells has been shown to be inducible by the low doses of tetracycline as well as by the mutagenic doses of UV-light. The induction was(More)
The possible participation of restriction endonuclease EcoRI in recombination of compatible nonhomologous plasmids in E. coli cells has been studied. To study the process, plasmids RP4 and R245 have been transferred by conjugation into the recipient cells of E. coli harbouring one of isogenic plasmids, pSA14 and pSA25, different for the genes coding(More)
The effect of UV-irradiation on Vibrio cholerae cells and its changes mediated by the plasmid R245 have been studied. Vibrio cholerae strains 569B and RV31 have been shown to be considerably more sensitive to lethal effect of UV-irradiation as compared with Escherichia coli and Salmonella typhimurium cells. Highly toxigenic strain 569B and practically(More)
The research was aimed at isolation of Francisella tularensis mutants possessing the decreased virulence for experimental animals and mediating the changes in the animal immune response. A number of spontaneous and induced mutants of the American and European subtypes of Francisella tularensis were selected for antibiotics resistance or detergent(More)
The specifities of restriction of bacteriophages P1 and lambda controlled by R plasmids in Escherichia coli have been investigated. The isogenic strains harbouring the plasmids pAS26 coding for restriction endonuclease R.EcoRI, R245 coding for restriction endonuclease R.EcoRII and and R124 have been investigated in the present work.
