OBJECTIVES The bla regulatory system is critical in the regulation of mecA expression particularly when staphylococci lack the mec regulator. We sought to evaluate the effect of bla regulators on the cryptic methicillin-resistant phenotype and resistance conversion under β-lactam exposure in oxacillin-susceptible or oxacillin-resistant mecA-positive(More)
Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) acts as a signaling molecule in response to cold stress. Mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) and C-repeat/dehydration-responsive factor (CBF) play important roles in cold response regulation. To investigate the roles of MAPKs and CBF in H2O2-induced chilling tolerance, tomato (Solanum lycopersicum cv. Ailsa Craig) plants were(More)
Mammary glands of dairy cattle produce milk for the newborn offspring and for human consumption. Long intergenic noncoding RNAs (lincRNAs) play various functions in eukaryotic cells. However, types and roles of lincRNAs in bovine mammary glands are still poorly understood. Using computational methods, 886 unknown intergenic transcripts (UITs) were(More)
Zearalenone (ZEA), an estrogenic mycotoxin, is mainly produced by Fusarium fungi. In this study, Bacillus licheniformis CK1 isolated from soil with the capability of degrading ZEA was evaluated for its efficacy in reducing the adverse effects of ZEA in piglets. The gilts were fed one of the following three diets for 14 days: a basic diet for the control(More)
