Anopheles gambiae is the principal vector of malaria, a disease that afflicts more than 500 million people and causes more than 1 million deaths each year. Tenfold shotgun sequence coverage was obtained from the PEST strain of A. gambiae and assembled into scaffolds that span 278 million base pairs. A total of 91% of the genome was organized in 303(More)
Seven temperature-sensitive cell lysis (cly) mutant strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae were isolated which lyse at the restrictive temperature on hypotonic but not on osmotically supported medium. The seven mutants fell into four complementation groups, CLY12 to CLY15. The wild-type CLY15 gene was isolated by complementation of the cly15(More)
The public availability of numerous microbial genomes is enabling the analysis of bacterial biology in great detail and with an unprecedented, organism-wide and taxon-wide, broad scope. Streptococcus pneumoniae is one of the most important bacterial pathogens throughout the world. We present here sequences and functional annotations for 2.1-Mbp of(More)
We have previously described a temperature-sensitive pmi40-1 mutant of Saccharomyces cerevisiae which is defective in glycosylation and secretion because of a thermolabile phosphomannose isomerase (PMI) activity. Inactivation of PMI at the restrictive temperature of 37 degrees C prevents synthesis of the GDP-mannose and dolichol-phosphate-mannose required(More)
The two-hybrid system for the identification of protein-protein interactions was used to screen for proteins that interact in vivo with theSaccharomyces cerevisiae Pkc1 protein, a homolog of mammalian protein kinase C. Four positive clones were isolated that encoded portions of the protein kinase Mkk1, which acts downstream of Pkc1p in thePKC1-mediated(More)
The Candida albicans inositol biosynthetic gene and its regulation have been studied. The gene, CalNO1, was cloned on a multicopy vector by complementation of a Saccharomyces cerevisae mutant strain. Southern blot analysis established that the cloned DNA was C. albicans genomic DNA in origin; neither rearrangements nor pseudogenes were evident. Blot(More)
The genes responsible for cell wall biosynthesis and cell division (dcw genes) were identified and sequenced in Streptococcus pneumoniae. The genetic organization of the dcw cluster in Streptococcus pneumoniae differed significantly from the clusters of other bacteria reported to date. In particular, the genes corresponding to the 2 min region of the(More)
The Saccharomyces cerevisiae PKC1 gene encodes a homolog of mammalian protein kinase C (Levin, D. E., Fields, F.O., Kunisawa, R., Bishop, J.M., and Thorner, J. (1990) Cell 62, 213-224). A protein of 150 kDa is recognized by a polyclonal antiserum raised against a trpE-Pkc1 fusion protein. In subcellular fractionations, Pkc1p associates with the 100,000 x g(More)
Phospholipid metabolism in the pathogenic fungus Candida albicans was examined. The phospholipid biosynthetic pathways of C. albicans were elucidated and were shown to be similar to those of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. However, marked differences were seen between these two fungi in the regulation of the pathways in response to exogenously provided precursors(More)
