A chick gene homologous to the Drosophila homeobox gene labial has been cloned and sequenced. Regions of additional sequence identity outside of the homeobox reveal a close relationship to the mouse gene Hox 1.6. Northern blot analysis demonstrates that Ghox-lab and Hox 1.6 transcripts are both present at high levels during early stages of chick and mouse(More)
A novel non-motile, Gram-staining-negative, yellow-pigmented bacterium, designated AG13(T), isolated from a rain water pond at a plant nursery in Spain and characterized as a plant-growth-promoting bacterium, was investigated to determine its taxonomic status. The isolate grew best over a temperature range of 15-40 °C, at pH 5.0-8.0 and with 0-4 % (w/v)(More)
The taxonomic position of Pseudomonas sp. B13(T), isolated as a 3-chlorobenzoate-degrading organism and used for several groundbreaking studies on the enzymology and genetics of the degradative pathway for haloaromatic compounds, was studied in detail. The previously performed physiological studies, the detection of ubiquinone Q-9, the polyamine pattern(More)
A bacterial strain capable of degrading some monochlorinated dibenzofurans, designated RW16T, was isolated from aerobic River Elbe sediments. The strain was characterized based on 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, DNA G+C content, physiological characteristics, polyamines, ubiquinone and polar lipid pattern and fatty acid composition. This analysis revealed(More)
A novel, Gram-staining-negative, rod-shaped, aerobic and motile bacterium, designated strain CC-SKC2T, was isolated from the root tumor of a green bell pepper (Capsicum annuum var. grossum) plant in Taiwan. Cells were positive for oxidase and catalase activities and exhibited growth at 25–37 °C, pH 4.0–9.0 and tolerated NaCl concentrations up to 4.0 %(More)
Two strains, NCCP-650T and NCCP-667, were isolated from industrial effluent and their taxonomic positions were investigated using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. The strains were found to be Gram-stain negative, strictly aerobic, motile short rods, which are tolerant to heavy-metals (Cr+2, As+2, Pb+2 and Cu+2). Cells were observed to grow at a temperature(More)
A novel yellow colony-forming bacterium, strain P3B162T was isolated from the pokkali rice rhizosphere from Kerala, India, as part of a project study aimed at isolating plant growth beneficial rhizobacteria from saline tolerant pokkali rice and functionally evaluate their abilities to promote plant growth under saline conditions. The novel strain P3B162T(More)
Under suitable conditions of substrate supply, cell suspensions of yeast Saccharomyces uvarum may display synchronized oscillations of glycolytic metabolism. Also in an unstirred suspension, spatial patterns can be induced by continuously feeding enzymically liberated glucose into the system. the absorption of NADH in the suspension was measured in an(More)
