Degenerate oligonucleotide primers corresponding to the conserved regions of bacterial heat shock sigma factor RpoH (sigma 32) were used to amplify a 190-bp fragment by PCR on the X. campestris pv. campestris strain 11 chromosome. Using this fragment as a probe, plasmid pXC57 carrying a 4.7-kb insert was isolated from a genomic library of Xc11. Sequence(More)
ORF95 in the filamentous phage phi Lf genome, locating behind gIII, was identified to be the gene (gVI) coding for minor coat protein pVI (95 amino acids, 10,245 dal). It was shown to be virion associated by Western blot analysis of chloroform-treated phage particles. Computer analysis predicted two transmembrane regions for this protein. Since no signal(More)
One viral strand of phi Lf, a filamentous phage of Xanthomonas campestris pv.campestris, the open reading frame (ORF440) behind gene VI was identified as gene I. This gene codes for pI protein (440 aa, 48 kDa) which was shown to be membrane-bound in the phi Lf-infected host cell by Western blot analysis using the antibody raised against the protein(More)
Cells generate traction forces upon adhesion to the extracellular matrix as well as to neighboring cells. These forces are important for the growth and maintenance of adhesion structures such as focal adhesions and adherens junctions, and may play roles in tissue development. Here, we describe a method for measuring the tugging force transmitted across the(More)
The gene III protein (pIII) from phi Lf, a filamentous phage of Xanthomonas campestris pv.campestris, was purified by gel filtration with FPLC. The gIII coding region was amplified by PCR, which was then cloned into pUC18 and expressed in Escherichia coli. The size of both pIII, purified from phage particle and expressed in E. coli, is similar to the value(More)

41 male patients with breast cancer confirmed pathologically were treated. Of these, 35 were treated by radical mastectomy and 6 by modified radical mastectomy. The patients with axillary lymphatic metastasis were treated by postoperative radiotherapy, chemotherapy. The overall 5-, 10- and 15-year survival rates were 67.6%, 53.3% and 55.0%, respectively.(More)
The Xanthomonas campestris rpsM (S13)-rpsK (S11)-rpsD (S4)-rpoA (alpha)-rplQ (L17) cluster, encoding RNA polymerase alpha-subunit and four ribosomal proteins, reside in a 3164-bp DNA region. The N-terminal sequence of the authentic alpha-protein determined chemically matches that predicted from the nucleotide sequence. rplQ is monocistronic, instead of(More)
A DNA fragment encoding the primary sigma factor from Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris was cloned and sequenced. The gene (rpoD) encodes a polypeptide of 622 amino acids with a calculated MW of 70,700. The deduced amino acid sequence exhibits extensive sequence homology to the conserved regions of the primary sigma factors from bacteria. The gene(More)
