The maltose regulon consists of 10 genes encoding a multicomponent and binding protein-dependent ABC transporter for maltose and maltodextrins as well as enzymes necessary for the degradation of these sugars. MalT, the transcriptional activator of the system, is necessary for the transcription of all mal genes. MalK, the energy-transducing subunit of the(More)
The maltose system in Escherichia coli consists of cell envelope-associated proteins and enzymes that catalyze the uptake and utilization of maltose and alpha,1-4-linked maltodextrins. The presence of these sugars in the growth medium induces the maltose system (exogenous induction), even though only maltotriose has been identified in vitro as an inducer(More)
The information that has been accumulated in recent years about metabolism and function of eicosanoids in the liver does not yet allow the presentation of a comprehensive picture. It suffices, however, to attribute to these mediators an important role in signal transduction between the different cells of the liver, especially in inflammatory reactions, in(More)
The maltose regulon consists of 10 genes encoding an ABC transporter for maltose and maltodextrins as well as enzymes necessary for their degradation. MalK, the energy-transducing subunit of the transport system, acts phenotypically as a repressor of MalT, the transcriptional activator of the mal genes. Using MacConkey maltose indicator plates we isolated(More)
A novel influenza A (H1N1) virus detected in April 2009 rapidly spread around the world. North American provincial and state laboratories have well-defined roles and responsibilities, including providing accurate, timely test results for patients and information for regional public health and other decision makers. We used the multidisciplinary response and(More)
