A large plasmid containing all delta-endotoxin genes was isolated from Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. israelensis; restricted by BamHI, EcoRI, HindIII, KpnI, PstI, SacI, and SalI; and cloned as appropriate libraries in Escherichia coli. The libraries were screened for inserts containing recognition sites for BamHI, SacI, and SalI. Each was labeled with 32P(More)
—A family of carrier lock detectors for M-PSK receivers operating in additive white Gaussian noise channels is suggested. The statistical properties of the lock detectors are derived theoretically using stochastic analysis, and computer simulations are used to validate the results obtained. The derivations yield discovery of two useful attributes of the(More)
Plastid DNA of seven American and four Australian species of the genus Nicotiana was examined by restriction endonuclease analysis using the enzymes Sal I, Bgl I, Pst I, Kpn I, Xho I, Pvu II and Eco RI. These endonucleases collectively distinguish more than 120 sites on N. tabacum plastid DNA. The DNAs of all ten species exhibited restriction patterns(More)
Cell suspensions of Petunia hybrida were subjected to a selection procedure in which the concentration of the selective agent, methotrexate (MTX), was gradually elevated. In mammalian cells, this procedure frequently results in MTX-resistant mutants due to amplification of the gene coding for dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR), the target protein of MTX.Five(More)
