Halosimplex carlsbadense gen. nov., sp. nov., a unique halophilic archaeon, with three 16S rRNA genes, that grows only in defined medium with glycerol and acetate or pyruvate
Abstract. A halophilic archaeon has been isolated from unsterilized salt crystals taken from the 250-million-year-old Salado formation in southeastern New Mexico. This microorganism grows only onExpand

Mammalian Target of Rapamycin (mTOR) and S6 Kinase Down-regulate Phospholipase D2 Basal Expression and Function*
The mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) and S6 kinase (S6K) pathway is essential for cell differentiation, growth, and survival. Phospholipase D2 (PLD2) plays a key role in mTOR/S6K mitogenicExpand

Evolutionary Plasticity of AmrZ Regulation in Pseudomonas
Microbes often display finely tuned patterns of gene regulation across different environments, with major regulatory changes controlled by a small group of “master” regulators within each cell. AmrZExpand

Extensive Phenotypic Changes Associated with Large-scale Horizontal Gene Transfer
Horizontal gene transfer often leads to phenotypic changes within recipient organisms independent of any immediate evolutionary benefits. While secondary phenotypic effects of horizontal transferExpand
