The Saccharomyces cerevisiae SCS2 gene product, a homolog of a synaptobrevin-associated protein, is an integral membrane protein of the endoplasmic reticulum and is required for inositol metabolism.
The Saccharomyces cerevisiae SCS2 gene has been cloned as a suppressor of inositol auxotrophy of CSE1 and hac1/ire15 mutants (J. Nikawa, A. Murakami, E. Esumi, and K. Hosaka, J. Biochem. 118:39-45,Expand

Function of the sigma(E) regulon in dead-cell lysis in stationary-phase Escherichia coli.
Elevation of active sigma(E) levels in Escherichia coli by either repressing the expression of rseA encoding an anti-sigma(E) factor or cloning rpoE in a multicopy plasmid, led to a large decrease inExpand

A bacitracin-resistant Bacillus subtilis gene encodes a homologue of the membrane-spanning subunit of the Bacillus licheniformis ABC transporter.
Bacitracin is a peptide antibiotic nonribosomally produced by Bacillus licheniformis. The bcrABC genes which confer bacitracin resistance to the bacitracin producer encode ATP binding cassette (ABC)Expand

Transcriptional termination control of a novel ABC transporter gene involved in antibiotic resistance in Bacillus subtilis.
In members of one of the subfamilies of the bacterial ATP binding cassette (ABC) transporters, the two nucleotide binding domains are fused as a single peptide and the proteins have noExpand

————‐Immunological Properties of Rickettsia tsutsugamushi Kawasaki Strain, Isolated from a Patient in Kyushu
Nine isolates of Rickettsia tsutsugamushi were obtained from patients with Tsutsugamushi disease (scrub typhus) in Miyazaki Prefecture in Kyushu. Immunological analyses of these patients' sera andExpand

Transcription of an antisense RNA of a gadE mRNA is regulated by GadE, the central activator of the acid resistance system in Escherichia coli
6H57, a 69‐nucleotide‐long small RNA, was isolated in shotgun cloning using an RNA sample derived from early stationary‐phase cells. The 6H57 gene is located in a 798‐bp intergenic region between twoExpand

Seasonal development of Leptotrombidium pallidum (Acari: Trombiculidae) observed by experimental rearing in the natural environment.
Engorged larvae of Leptotrombidium pallidum Nagayo, Miyagawa, Mitamura & Tamiya, the vector mite of scrub typhus in Japan, were reared by feeding them with fresh eggs of the collembolan SinellaExpand

bmr3, a third multidrug transporter gene of Bacillus subtilis.
A third multidrug transporter gene named bmr3 was cloned from Bacillus subtilis. Although Bmr3 shows relatively low homology to Bmr and Blt, the substrate specificities of these three transportersExpand

Failed vertical transmission of Rickettsia tsutsugamushi (Rickettsiales: Rickettsiaceae) acquired from rickettsemic mice by Leptotrombidium pallidum (Acari: trombiculidae).
Larvae of Leptotrombidium pallidum (Nagayo, Miyagawa, Mitamura & Tamiya) from uninfected laboratory colonies were fed on mice infected with Rickettsia tsutsugamushi (Hayashi) Ogata. Infection of theExpand

Multidrug resistant phenotype of Bacillus subtilis spontaneous mutants isolated in the presence of puromycin and lincomycin.
Spontaneous mutants were isolated by growing Bacillus subtilis 168 in the presence of high concentrations of puromycin and lincomycin. These mutants showed increased resistance to several drugs otherExpand
