We have used real-time quantitative PCR to measure, for the first time, the relative phage WO-B orf7 density and infection incidence in Aedes albopictus mosquitoes from fields in Thailand. Our results showed that the infection incidence of phage WO-B in this mosquito, sampled from geographically different places in Thailand, was 97.9%. Average relative(More)
katA encodes the major catalase that accounts for 90 % of the total catalase activity present in Xanthomonas campestris pv. phaseoli. katA is located upstream of an ORF designated ankA encoding a cytoplasmic membrane protein homologous to eukaryotic ankyrin. Transcriptional analysis of katA and ankA identified two katA transcripts: a major monocistronic(More)
katA and ahpC, encoding monofunctional catalase and alkyl hydroperoxide reductase, respectively, play important protective roles against peroxide toxicity in Xanthomonas campestris pv. phaseoli (Xp). The expression of both katA and ahpC is controlled by the global peroxide sensor and transcriptional activator, OxyR. In Xp, these two genes have compensatory(More)
Epigenetic modification is essential for normal development and plays important roles in gene regulation in higher plants. Multiple factors interact to regulate the establishment and maintenance of DNA methylation in plant genome. We had previously cloned and characterized DNA methyltransferase (DNA MTase) gene homologues (OsMET1) from rice. In this present(More)
The first cloning and characterization of the gene katA, encoding the major catalase (KatA), from Xanthomonas is reported. A reverse genetic approach using a synthesized katA-specific DNA probe to screen a X. campestris pv. phaseoli genomic library was employed. A positively hybridizing clone designated pKat29 that contained a full-length katA was(More)
