Most LuxR homologues function as activators of transcription during the process of quorum sensing, but a few, including EsaR and ExpR(Ecc), negatively impact gene expression. The LuxR-activated luxI promoter and LuxR binding site, the lux box, were used in artificial contexts to assess the potential for transcriptional activation and DNA binding by EsaR and(More)
The histidine-rich Ca2+ binding protein (HRC) resides in the sarcoplasmic reticulum of muscle and binds Ca2+. Since Ca2+ concentrations can regulate gene expression via calcineurin, the mouse homologue of HRC (mHRC) was isolated and characterized. mHRC was detected in muscle progenitor cells, in primary clonal thymic tumors and a tumor cell line, suggesting(More)
Spontaneous tumor development and primary oncogenesis were compared in a large number of NK4-deficient, homozygous C57Bl/6-bg/bg mice and their NK normal, heterozygous +/bg littermate controls. In a group of 167 retired breeders followed for spontaneous tumors, the probability of survival for mice eventually dying with a tumor was greater for the(More)
Extracts of thymic lymphomas induced by dimethylbenz(a) anthnacene are leukemogenic when injected into intranenal thymic grafts. Tumor cell lines established in vitro from tumors induced by such extracts were found to release virus with the properties of a C-type particle. This tissue culture-derived virus (virus produced by tissue culture cell lines(More)
