The enzymes responsible for the oxidation of n-octane to octanoic acid or beyond in Pseudomonas oleovorans are octane inducible and are coded by genes borne on a transmissible extrachromosomal element. The octane to octanoate enzymes induced by octane are repressed by octanol. The chromosome also carries genes coding octanol oxidation enzymes that, in(More)
The octane (OCT) plasmid in Pseudomonas putida derived from the omega-hydroxylase-carrying strain of Coon and coworkers is transferable to the camphor (CAM) plasmid-bearing strain by conjugation or by transduction. While the majority of the Cam (+)Oct(+) exconjugants segregate Cam(+) or Oct(+) cells, exconjugants with stable Cam (+)Oct(+) phenotype(More)
Human hepatoma up-regulated protein (HURP), a cell-cycle regulator, is found consistently overexpressed in human hepatocellular carcinoma. At present, the function of HURP in cell-cycle regulation and carcinogenesis remains unclear. In database mining, we have identified a mars gene in Drosophila, which encodes a protein with a high similarity to HURP in(More)
