Hippocampal long-term potentiation may serve as an elementary process underlying certain forms of learning and memory in vertebrates. As is the case with behavioural memory, hippocampal long-term potentiation in the CA1 region and in the dentate gyrus exhibits distinct phases. These comprise a short-term early potentiation which lasts one to three hours and(More)
The transposon Tn10-encoded TET repressor controls the expression of tetracycline resistance as well as its own synthesis. The antibiotic tetracycline functions as an inducer for both genes, which are transcribed in divergent directions from a common start area. The interaction of the TET repressor with the regulatory sequence of the tetracycline resistance(More)
The nucleotide sequence of 1530 base pairs of Tn10 DNA coding for tetracycline resistance has been determined. The gene start consists of overlapping bidirectional promotors and two operator sequences. One terminator of transcription as defined by the typical terminator sequence is about 1300 base pairs downstream from the promotor. It is preceeded by(More)
The promoter and operator sequences of the Tn10-encoded tetracycline resistance operon are determined in vitro by transcription studies of purified DNA restriction fragments, protection of guanosine from methylation by dimethylsulphate, and DNase I footprinting employing the purified TET repressor protein. In vitro transcription reveals three promoters with(More)
Three stable murine hybridoma cell lines, which secrete monoclonal antibodies (mAb) to human tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF alpha), were established. None of the monoclonal antibodies cross-reacted with lymphotoxin, interleukin 2 (IL 2) or Interferon gamma (IFN gamma). The highly species-specific monoclonal antibody, designated as mAb 195, neutralizes the(More)
A terminator of transcription with bidirectional activity has been located between the translation termination codons of the genes tetA and orfL on Tn10. These genes are transcribed towards each other. Each orientation of the intervening sequence is shown to reduce the expression of the lacZ and galK genes when cloned between the respective structural gene(More)
The nucleotide sequence of the central part of Tn10 has been determined from the rightmost HindIII site to IS10R. This sequence contains two open reading frames with opposite polarity. The in vivo transcription start points in this sequence have been determined by S1 mapping. These results define one minor and two major promoters. The transcription starts(More)
