Mutants of Escherichia coli K-12 were constructed such that each possessed one single major system for phosphate transport. A comparison of these strains showed that one of the systems (PIT) was fully constitutive, required no binding protein, and operated in spheroplasts. It permitted the complete exchange of intracellular phosphate with extracellular(More)
Plasmids in both Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus contain an "operon" that confers resistance to arsenate, arsenite, and antimony(III) salts. The systems were always inducible. All three salts, arsenate, arsenite, and antimony(III), were inducers. Mutants and a cloned deoxyribonucleic acid fragment from plasmid pI258 in S. aureus have lost(More)
The DNA nucleotide sequence of four genes for the phosphate-specific transport system of Escherichia coli is reported. Along with the DNA sequence for the phoS gene reported previously (Surin et al., J. Bacteriol. 157:772-778, 1984; Magota et al., J. Bacteriol. 157:909-917, 1984), this study completes the nucleotide sequence of the phosphate-specific(More)
Silver ions inhibited phosphate uptake and exchange in Escherichia coli and caused efflux of accumulated phosphate as well as of mannitol, succinate, glutamine, and proline. The effects of Ag+ were reversed by thiols and, to a lesser extent, by bromide. In the presence of N-ethylmaleimide and several uncouplers, Ag+ failed to cause phosphate efflux, but(More)
Three mutant strains of Escherichia coli have been isolated which are lacking ferric-enterochelin esterase activity. This enzyme catalyzes the hydrolysis of the enterochelin moiety of ferric-enterochelin to yield ultimately three molecules of N-2,3-dihydroxybenzoylserine. The mutants (designated fes(-)) were shown to be unaffected in enterochelin(More)
A total of 116 students (87 women; 29 men) enrolled at a large, public Midwestern university in the United States were recruited to complete a set of demographic questionnaires and drinking-driving episode surveys. The latter surveys assessed participants' reported motivations for driving or not driving during four recent drinking episodes. Content analyses(More)
Several highly attenuated spore-forming nontoxinogenic and nonencapsulated Bacillus anthracis vaccines differing in levels of expression of recombinant protective antigen (rPA) were constructed. Biochemical analyses (including electrospray mass spectroscopy and N terminus amino acid sequencing) as well as biological and immunological tests demonstrated that(More)
