The rolC gene of Agrobacterium rhizogenes, which drastically affects growth and development of transgenic plants, codes for a cytokinin-beta-glucosidase. Indeed, rolC protein expressed in Escherichia coli as a fusion protein hydrolyses cytokinin glucosides, thus liberating free cytokinins. Furthermore, beta-glucosidase activity present in E. coli extracts(More)
RNA polymerase I was isolated from parsley cells grown in suspension culture and from soybean hypocotyls. Kinetic studies of the enzyme revealed that RNA polymerase I is an allosteric regulated enzyme. The enzyme activity was influenced by nucleoside triphosphates (NTP) and divalent cations. NTP exceeding a 1:1 ratio of these two components acted as(More)
The genes SAM1 and SAM2 encoding the two different methionine adenosyltransferases (EC in Saccharomyces cerevisiae were used as templates to generate specific DNA-probes. This heterologous mixture of DNA-probes was hybridized under low stringency hybridization conditions to a Corynebacterium glutamicum colony-array representing the complete genome.(More)
Remote sensing from space has become a common method for deriving geophysical parameters such as atmospheric temperature and composition. The Cryogenic Infrared Spectrometers and Telescopes for the Atmosphere (CRISTA) instrument was designed to sound the middle and the upper atmosphere (10-180 km) with high spatial resolution. Atmospheric IR emissions were(More)
A fluorescence spectroscopy method is described for studying association of RNA polymerase with DNA templates. Using double beam differential fluorescence at excitation and emission wavelengths of 285 and 335 nm, respectively, the new technique discriminates non-specific decrease of fluorescence intensity by addition of DNA from quenching of polymerase(More)
The isolation and purification of DNA-dependent RNA polymerase I (EC from parsley (Petroselinum crispum) callus cells grown in suspension culture is described. The enzyme was solubilized from isolated chromatin. Purification was achieved by using DEAE- and phospho-cellulose in batches, followed by column chromatography on DEAE- and(More)
