Mucor circinelloides is a dimorphic fungal model for studying several biological processes including cell differentiation (yeast-mold transitions) as well as biodiesel and carotene production. The recent release of the first draft sequence of the M. circinelloides genome, combined with the availability of analytical methods to determine patterns of gene(More)
The chromate ion transporter (CHR) superfamily comprises transporters that confer chromate resistance by extruding toxic chromate ions from cytoplasm. Burkholderia xenovorans strain LB400 has been reported to encode six CHR homologues in its multireplicon genome. We found that strain LB400 displays chromate-inducible resistance to chromate. Susceptibility(More)
Pseudomonas aeruginosa plasmid pUM505 possesses a pathogenicity island that contains the pumAB genes that encode products with sequence similarity to Toxin-Antitoxin (TA) modules. RT-PCR assays on the overlapping regions of the pumAB genes generated a bicistronic messenger RNA, suggesting that they form an operon. When the pumAB genes were cloned into the(More)
BACKGROUND Human papillomaviruses (HPVs), the leading cause of cervical cancer, are distributed worldwide, with high prevalence in developing countries. OBJECTIVE The objective of the study is to know the prevalence and genotypes of HPV in women from the state of Michoacán and the Women's Hospital in Morelia, Michoacán. MATERIALS AND METHODS Cervical(More)
In fungi, heterotrimeric G proteins are key regulators of biological processes such as mating, virulence, morphology, among others. Mucor circinelloides is a model organism for many biological processes, and its genome contains the largest known repertoire of genes that encode putative heterotrimeric G protein subunits in the fungal kingdom: twelve Gα(More)
