Infectious and inflammatory diseases have repeatedly shown strong genetic associations within the major histocompatibility complex (MHC); however, the basis for these associations remains elusive. To define host genetic effects on the outcome of a chronic viral infection, we performed genome-wide association analysis in a multiethnic cohort of HIV-1(More)
The transmission of plasmid pCU1 (or other IncN group plasmid) into a population of Klebsiella oxytoca cells reduces the viability of the population. A 2,400-bp region adjacent to traA is responsible for this phenotype and includes two regions, called kikA and kikC. Klebsiella cells which received this region and survived were found to acquire a chromosomal(More)
Plasmid genes or regions that are conditionally lethal to Escherichia coli have been called kil and those lethal to Klebsiella but not to E. coli have been called kik. Both classes of genes are found in or close to the N pilus region of the plasmid pCU1 and the closely related plasmid pKM101. Here we describe two new and overlapping lethal genes that are(More)
