Cultured skin fibroblasts were examined from two probands with type II (lethal) osteogenesis imperfecta. One proband had a single base mutation which converted the glycine codon at position alpha 1-244 in the alpha 1(I) chain of procollagen I into a cysteine codon whereas the other had a similar mutation that converted the glycine codon at position alpha(More)
Protein G of Pseudomonas aeruginosa was found to be strongly induced by iron and repressed by iron restriction in chemically defined medium (CDM). Expression in batch culture was influenced by phase of growth and in iron limited continuous culture by the doubling time. We suggest that protein G may constitute a low-affinity iron uptake system.
A rat apolipoprotein A-II cDNA clone was isolated from a rat liver cDNA library by in situ hybridization of bacteriophage plaques using a 32P-labeled human apoA-II cDNA as a probe. The cDNA insert from this clone was characterized by DNA sequencing. The amino acid composition derived from the DNA sequence data matched well with that of rat apoA-II reported(More)
Age-related defects in fibroblast differentiation and functionality were previously shown to be associated with impaired hyaluronan (HA) synthase 2 (HAS2) and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) function, as a result of upregulated microRNA-7 (miR-7) expression. In aging fibroblasts, inhibiting miR-7 prevented the dysregulation of the HA-mediated(More)
The gene defective in cystic fibrosis (CF) has recently been isolated and the major mutation identified. The haplotype distribution of this mutation (delta F508) has been determined for 215 CF chromosomes in the Scottish population. delta F508 represents 73% of all CF mutations in this group. There remains considerable linkage disequilibrium between XV2c(More)
Several mucoid strains and one non-mucoid strain of Pseudomonas aeruginosa were grown in subinhibitory concentrations of various aminoglycosides, beta-lactams, and ciprofloxacin. At antibiotic concentrations that did not affect bacterial growth, aminoglycosides inhibited the excretion of alginate capsule and the production of the iron-chelating(More)
