Although mitochondrial dysfunction has been well documented in obese people with type 2 diabetes mellitus, its presence or absence in nonobese subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus has not been well studied so far. The aim of the present study was to assess the status of mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation in subcutaneous adipose tissue of nonobese(More)
32P-Labelled tRNA was isolated from uninfected and phage phi 149-infected Vibrio cholerae cells. These tRNA preparations were then hybridised with DNA isolated from phage phi 149. Significant hybridisation was observed only with tRNA from phage phi 149-infected cells. This strongly suggests that infection of classical vibrio with phage phi 149 results in(More)
Escherichia coli strain N100 has been mutagenized by transposon mutagenesis and mutants with a cell surface leaky phenotype have been isolated. The mutant designated as E. coli N100::Tn5 excreted periplasmic proteins like ribonuclease and alkaline phosphatase. When this mutant strain was transformed with plasmids containing cloned cholera toxin genes, the(More)
