Melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH) is the natural peptide ligand for MCHR1 and MCHR2, which belong to the G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) superfamily. The MCH-MCHR1 system is involved in the regulation of feeding, energy homeostasis and emotional processing in rodents. Recently, MCHR1 expression was discovered in neuronal immotile primary cilia of the(More)
The trp gene cluster of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens was found to be structurally similar to that of the Enterobacteriaceae. The translation termination codon of the putative trpE gene and the initiation codon for the putative trpD gene overlap at the trpE-trpD junction, and a promoter for the putative trpC gene is suggested to exist. A promoter-probe vector(More)
A total of 75 strains (including 5 reference strains) of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens, B. cereus, B. circulans, B. licheniformis, B. megaterium, B. pumilus, B. sphaericus, B. subtilis, and B. thuringiensis and 36 species-unidentified Bacillus strains were surveyed for plasmids by cesium chloride-ethidium bromide equilibrium centrifugation of cell lysates in a(More)
A cloning vehicle, pFTB91, for the Bacillus subtilis host was constructed with DNA fragments heterologous to the host chromosome. It consists of three DNA fragments: (i) chromosomal DNA of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens which complements the leuA and ilvC mutations in B. subtilis; (ii) a B. amyloliquefaciens plasmid DNA that supplies an autonomously replicating(More)
