Klebsiella pneumoniae K6 (ATCC 700603), a clinical isolate, is resistant to ceftazidime and other oxyimino-beta-lactams. A consistent reduction in the MICs of oxyimino-beta-lactams by at least 3 twofold dilutions in the presence of clavulanic acid confirmed the utility of K. pneumoniae K6 as a quality control strain for extended-spectrum beta-lactamase… (More)
We have identified a cell surface ferric reductase activity in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe. A mutant strain deficient in this activity was also deficient in ferric iron uptake, while ferrous iron uptake was not impaired. Therefore, reduction is a required step in cellular ferric iron acquisition. We have cloned frp1+, the wild-type allele of… (More)
The RNA8 gene of Saccharomyces cerevisiae encodes an unusually large (260 kd) protein required for pre-mRNA splicing. Immunological procedures have been used to demonstrate that the RNA8 protein is in stable association with the small nuclear RNAs snR7L and snR7S, which are also known to be required for splicing and which are present in spliceosomal… (More)
Replication of HIV-1 depends on the viral Tat protein, which functions via a target sequence, TAR, present in the proviral long terminal repeat (LTR) and at the 5' end of viral mRNAs. We have shown that Tat potentiates the expression of TAR-containing RNAs, but only when Tat and the TAR-containing RNA are present in the nucleus. We now show that a small… (More)
The process of nuclear pre-messenger RNA splicing is similar in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and metazoan cells in that the two-step mechanism is identical and the reaction occurs in a large ribonucleoprotein complex, the spliceosome. Little is known, however, about the degree of conservation of splicing factors other than of the small nuclear RNAs (snRNAs).… (More)
The computing performance literature offers guidelines and frameworks, but data on the limits of user appreciation for performance are scarce. This paper presents a study of user satisfaction with different levels of computing performance. Thirty-five participants performed common computing tasks such as creating email and Web surfing. They rated computing… (More)
