The effect of ptsH, gyrA and gyrB mutations on the frequency of precise excision (PE) of transposon Tn5 was studied in Escherichia coli K12. The conjugative plasmid with Tn5 integrated in the tet gene of Tn10 was used as a model in the experiments. It was shown that mutational damage to the HPr protein (ptsH mutation), a common component of the bacterial(More)
A synthetic gene encoding dispersin B of Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans was cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli cells. Procedure for purification of recombinant dispersin B was developed, and its in vitro activity was determined. The enzyme was used in experiments on disruption of the biofilms formed by various microorganisms. It exhibited high(More)
Biochemical consequences of mutational damage to common components of the Erwinia phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent phosphotransferase system (the HPr protein and enzyme I) were studied. The transport of glucose, mannose, fructose, and mannitol inErwinia was shown to require a preliminary induction of proteins of the phosphotransferase system. A drastic(More)
Several plasmids that contain genetically marked variants of the TnBP transposon isolated from Bordetella pertussis have been constructed based on a thermosensitive plasmid. The frequencies of the integration of these plasmids into an E. coli K12 chromosome at a nonpermissive temperature (42°C) have been studied. A decline in the frequency of RSBP-induced(More)
