Agrobacterium tumefaciens strains C58, T37, K827 and J73, A. rhizogenes strains A4 and 15834, and A. radiobacter strain K299 were all susceptible to agrocin 84 and this sensitivity was enhanced in each case by addition of agrocinopines A and B. Analysis of transconjugants showed that sensitivity of strain A4 to agrocin 84 was encoded by pArA4a and not by(More)
Transfer of bacteria/yeast shuttle plasmids from Escherichia coli into the yeast species Kluyveromyces lactis, Pichia angusta (Hansenula polymorpha), and Pachysolen tannophilus has been accomplished, presumably through inter-kingdom conjugal transfer. Plasmid pEK2 was transferred into a K. lactis mutant to complement trp auxotrophy, while plasmid YEp13 was(More)
The nucleotide sequence of a cDNA clone from Arabidopsis thaliana ecotype Columbia was determined, and the corresponding amino acid sequence deduced. The predicted sequence is highly homologous to those of members of the cyclophilin A-family of peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerases. The tryptophan residue necessary for interaction with cyclosporin A is(More)
The toxin-encoding linear plasmid systems found in Pichia acaciae and Kluyveromyces lactis yeasts appear to be quite similar, both in function and structural organization. By Southern hybridization, a linear plasmid of P. acaciae, pPacl-2, was found to hybridize to the second open reading frame (ORF2) of K. lactis plasmid pGKL1, known to encode the alpha(More)
A xylose reductase gene was isolated from the xylose-fermenting yeast Pachysolen tannophilus as a cDNA clone by selecting clones that hybridized specifically to xylose-inducible messenger RNA. Use of the cDNA clone as a probe in Northern hybridizations identified a xylose-inducible mRNA species large enough to encode a 36 kDa xylose reductase protein known(More)
