The structural gene for the precursor of the peptide antibiotic nisin was isolated and characterized. As with other lanthionine-containing antibiotics, nisin is synthesized as a pre-propeptide which undergoes post-translational modification to generate the mature antibiotic. The sequence data obtained agreed with those of precursor nisin genes isolated by(More)
Chimpanzees of the Sonso community, Budongo Forest, Uganda were observed eating clay and drinking clay-water from waterholes. We show that clay, clay-rich water, and clay obtained with leaf sponges, provide a range of minerals in different concentrations. The presence of aluminium in the clay consumed indicates that it takes the form of kaolinite. We(More)
A Geographic Information System (GIS) viewshed is the result of a function that determines, given a terrain model, which areas on a map can be seen from a given point(s), line or area. In the communications industry, this function has been used to model radio wave coverages and to site transceiver towers for cellular phones. However, there are errors(More)
