The characteristics of the respiratory system of Acetobacter diazotrophicus PAL5 were investigated. Increasing aeration (from 0.5 to 4.0 liters of air min(-1) liter of medium(-1)) had a strong positive effect on growth and on the diazotrophic activity of cultures. Cells obtained from well-aerated and diazotrophically active cultures possessed a highly(More)
A Rhizobium phaseoli cytochrome mutant, unable to oxidize N,N,N',N'-tetramethyl-p-phenylenediamine (TMPD), was isolated after Mu-dl (Kan lac) mutagenesis of the wild-type strain CE-3. Mutant strain CFN4202 had sixfold less haem-c but similar levels of b type, o and aa3 cytochromes than the wild-type strain. CFN4202 strain also showed reduced NADH- and(More)
PURPOSE Recombinant nematode anticoagulant protein c2 (rNAPc2) is a specific inhibitor of tissue factor (TF)/factor VIIa complex with novel antithrombotic activity. TF is highly expressed in human colorectal tumors, and levels are positively correlated with disease progression. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN To explore the therapeutic potential and mechanism of(More)
Two Rhizobium phaseoli mutants affected in cytochrome expression were obtained by Tn5-mob mutagenesis of the wild-type strain (CE3). Mutant strain CFN031 expressed sevenfold less cytochrome o in culture, expressed cytochrome aa3 under microaerophilic culture conditions, in contrast to strain CE3, and was affected in its vegetative growth properties and(More)
NTB-A is a CD2-related cell surface protein expressed primarily on lymphoid cells including B-lymphocytes from chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) and lymphoma patients. We have generated a series of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) against NTB-A and assessed their therapeutic potential for CLL. Selective mAbs to NTB-A were further tested in functional(More)
In this paper we describe the sequence analysis of two Rhizobium etli genes (ccmA and ccmB) which are believed to participate in the transport of the haem moiety to the periplasm in other bacterial species. The characterized DNA region was isolated by complementation of a R. etli Tn5mob induced mutant (CFN4201) which was affected in the production of c-type(More)
