Using a RT-PCR approach, we were able to isolate a cDNA encoding the Xenopus homologue of hepatocyte growth factor-like protein, which we have termed accordingly Xhl. The deduced Xhl protein consists of 717 amino acids, contains four putative kringle domains and a serine protease-like domain characteristic for mammalian HGF and HGF-like protein. The mRNA of(More)
Leuconostoc gasicomitatum is a psychrotrophic lactic acid bacterium (LAB) which causes spoilage in cold-stored modified-atmosphere-packaged (MAP) meat products. In addition to the fermentative metabolism, L. gasicomitatum is able to respire when exogenous heme and oxygen are available. In this study, we investigated the respiration effects on growth rate,(More)
XIRG (for Xenopus IRG) was cloned by screening a cDNA library of UV-ventralized stage 13 Xenopus laevis embryos for specifically ventrally expressed mRNAs. Embryonic XIRG mRNA expression is restricted to non-neural ectoderm at the gastrula and neurula stages. In adult X. laevis, XIRG mRNA can be detected in skin and kidney. Extensive searches in nucleic(More)
Trichoderma reesei is a filamentous fungus that is used worldwide to produce industrial enzymes. Industrial strains have traditionally been created though systematic strain improvement using mutagenesis and screening approaches. It is also desirable to specifically manipulate the genes of the organism to further improve and to modify the strain. Targeted(More)
