The R6K replicon is one of the best studied bacterial plasmid replicons. Replication of the R6K plasmid and derivatives harboring its γ origin of replication (oriR6Kγ) is dependent on the pir gene-encoded π protein. Originally encoded by R6K, this protein is usually provided in trans in hosts engineered to support replication of plasmids harboring oriR6Kγ.(More)
UNLABELLED Mycobacterium tuberculosis secretes several hundred proteins; many of which elicit immune responses. As a result, many of these proteins have been explored for their potential as diagnostic and vaccine candidates. Of these, the Antigen 85 complex proteins, represented by Antigen85 A, B, and C, are the most studied from the mycobacterial(More)
