The complete 1,751,377-bp sequence of the genome of the thermophilic archaeon Methanobacterium thermoautotrophicum deltaH has been determined by a whole-genome shotgun sequencing approach. A total of 1,855 open reading frames (ORFs) have been identified that appear to encode polypeptides, 844 (46%) of which have been assigned putative functions based on(More)
The protonmotive cytochrome b protein of the mitochondrial bc1 respiratory chain complex contains two reactions centers, designated Qo and Qi, which can be distinguished by the effects of different inhibitors. The nucleotide sequences have been determined of the mitochondrial cytochrome b genes from a series of mouse cell mutants selected for increased(More)
Fractions from a Sephadex gel filtration of homogenized Ascidia nigra blood cell lysate were analyzed for vanadium by atomic absorption spectroscopy. The results were unaffected by temperature from 4-21 degrees C, and by ionic strength in the range 0.09-1.0 M (NaCl). Appreciable loss of vanadium in the supernatant was experienced above pH 2.2.

Escherichia coli characteristically lyses upon treatment with most beta-lactam antimicrobial agents. In contrast, an investigational aminothiazole cephem, CGP 31523A, produced a new combination of antibacterial effects: it was highly bactericidal without causing cell wall degradation or lysis. Killing was associated with the formation of vacuolated(More)
This work describes a 3D, paper-based assay that can isolate sub-populations of cells based on their invasiveness (i.e., distance migrated in a hydrogel) in a gradient of concentration of oxygen (O2). Layers of paper impregnated with a cell-compatible hydrogel are stacked and placed in a plastic holder to form the invasion assay. In most assays, the stack(More)
