The rncS gene of Bacillus subtilis encodes Bs-RNase III, a narrow-specificity endoribonuclease. Previous attempts to disrupt rncS were unsuccessful. Here, a strain was constructed in which Bs-RNase III expression was dependent upon transcription of rncS from a temperature-sensitive plasmid. Growth of this strain at the non-permissive temperature resulted in(More)
The extrapolation from animal data to therapeutic effects in humans, a basic pharmacological issue, is especially critical in studies aimed to estimate the protective efficacy of drugs against nerve agent poisoning. Such efficacy can only be predicted by extrapolation of data from animal studies to humans. In pretreatment therapy against nerve agents,(More)
