BACKGROUND All polyketide synthases, fatty acid synthases, and non-ribosomal peptide synthetases require posttranslational modification of their constituent acyl carrier protein domain(s) to become catalytically active. The inactive apoproteins are converted to their active holo-forms by posttranslational transfer of the 4'-phosphopantetheinyl (P-pant)(More)
A gene, hmp, which encodes a ubiquitous protein homologous to hemoglobin was isolated among genes from Bacillus subtilis that are induced under anaerobic conditions. The hmp protein belongs to the family of two-domain flavohemoproteins, homologs of which have been isolated from various organisms such as Escherichia coli, Alcaligenes eutrophus, and(More)
The development of Bacillus subtilis genetic competence is a highly regulated adaptive response to stationary-phase stress. A key step in competence development is the activation of the transcriptional regulator ComK, which is required for the expression of genes encoding the products that function in DNA uptake. In log-phase cultures, ComK is trapped in a(More)
Bacillus subtilis can use either nitrate or nitrite as a sole source of nitrogen. The isolation of the nasABCDEF genes of B. subtilis, which are required for nitrate/nitrite assimilation, is reported. The probable gene products include subunits of nitrate/nitrite reductases and an enzyme involved in the synthesis of siroheme, a cofactor for nitrite(More)
The two-component regulatory proteins ResD and ResE are required for anaerobic nitrate respiration in Bacillus subtilis. ResD, when it undergoes ResE-dependent phosphorylation, is thought to activate transcriptionally anaerobically induced genes such as fnr, hmp and nasD. In this report, deletion analysis of the fnr, hmp and nasD promoter regions was(More)
PURPOSE To compare a standard 3- or 4-field technique to intensity modulated radiotherapy with helical tomotherapy (IMRT-HT) in the planning of locoregional breast radiation including the internal mammary chain (IMC). METHODS AND MATERIALS For 10 women with stage III left-sided breast cancer with a planning target volume (PTV) defined by the breast/chest(More)
The eIF4 group initiation factors are required for cap-dependent translation initiation. Infection of mammalian cells by picornaviruses results in proteolytic cleavage of one of these factors, eIF4G, which severely restricts cap-dependent initiation but permits cap-independent initiation to proceed from an internal ribosome entry site (IRES) in picornaviral(More)
