In Salmonella dublin, rpoS encodes an alternative sigma factor of the RNA polymerase that activates a variety of stationary-phase-induced genes, including some virulence-associated genes. In this work, we studied the regulation and transcriptional organization of rpoS during growth. We found two transcripts, 2.3 and 1.6 kb in length, that represent the(More)
The plasmid-encoded virulence genes (spvABCD) in nontyphoid Salmonella strains mediate lethal infections in a variety of animals. Previous studies have shown that these genes are transcriptionally regulated by stationary-phase growth. We studied the expression profile and the subcellular locations of the SpvABCD proteins in wild-type S. dublin by using(More)
Fusion of influenza virus with target membranes is induced by acid and involves complex changes in the viral fusion protein hemagglutinin. At 0 degree C, in a first kinetically resolvable step, the hemagglutinin polypeptide 2 (HA2) N-terminal segment (fusion peptide) is exposed and inserts into the target membrane (Tsurudome, M., Glück, R., Graf, R.,(More)
The Salmonella plasmid virulence spvABCD genes are growth phase regulated and require RpoS for maximal expression in stationary phase. We identified a growth phase-independent expression of spv which is mediated by short-chain fatty acids. During this fatty acid-mediated expression of spv, RpoS is required for induction only during exponential phase. In(More)
In this paper experiments with reactive evaporation of the starting materials Ti, TiO, Ti(2)O(3), Ti(3)O(5), and TiO(2) to obtain nonabsorbing TiO(2) films are under discussion. For the starting materials TiO and Ti(3)O(5) the dependence of the TiO(2) film refractive index on the substrate temperature, oxygen pressure, and deposition rate was measured. For(More)
The spatial association of narrow band metric radio spikes with type III bursts is analyzed. The analysis addresses the question of a possible causal relation between the spike emission and the acceleration of the energetic electrons causing the type III burst. The spikes are identified by the Phoenix-2 spectrometer (ETH Zurich) from survey solar(More)
A new mechanism for acceleration and enrichment of He during impulsive solar flares is presented. Low-frequency electromagnetic plasma waves excited by the Electron Firehose Instability (EFI) can account for the acceleration of ions up to 1 MeV amu−1 energies as a single stage process. The EFI arises as a direct consequence of the free energy stored in a(More)
