Pseudomonas’ IncP-7 plasmids play significant role in the environmental biodegradative potential and sometimes carry antibiotic-resistance genes. Rms148 plasmid was used as archetypal P-7 plasmid in microbiological incompatibility studies for more then 30 years. However, the structure of its basic replicon was not described until now; furthermore, the(More)
Both caprolactams and salicylate biodegradation by Pseudomonas salicylate/caprolactam degraders are controlled by large conjugative plasmids (SAL/CAP). Some of these plasmids have been assigned to the P-7 incompatibility group. The new salicylate 1-hydroxylase gene (scpA) has been detected in SAL/CAP plasmids and partially sequenced. The scpA gene was(More)
Nuclear factor kappa B (NFkappaB) is a ubiquitous nuclear transcription factor that regulates the expression of a number of genes involved in cell survival, immune and inflammatory processes. It has been hypothesized that after nerve injury, the release of specific cytokines may provide a stimulus for activation of the transcription factor NF-kappaB in(More)
A basic replicon of the naphthalene degradation plasmid pFME5 (80 kb, IncP-7) has been constructed and sequenced. The nucleotide sequence of pFME5mini is almost identical to replicons of the pND6-1 subgroup, which was separated based on the repA-oriV homology in our previous work. The basic replicon of pFME5 is capable of replication and stable maintenance(More)
A study was made of the effect of the sympathetic portion of the nervous system on the thyrocyte metabolism. Such morphological criteria as the volume of the thyrocyte nuclei, the amount of DNA in them and structural analysis were used. Three volumetric classes of the nuclei with a different morphological picture were detected in control animals. In(More)
Studies of morphology of the secretory hypothalamo-neurohypophyseal system under conditions of inhibition of the function of the peripheral region of the sympathetic nervous system were carried out. Desympathyzation was achieved by administration to newly born animals of antibodies to the factor of growth of nerves. In addition to the survey histological(More)
Ultrastructural organization of the components composing the mammal pineal gland is analyzed on the basis of literature data and personal observations. Variations in the form, size and ultrastructural organization of the cellular elements in the pineal gland--pinealocytes, interstitial and glial cells--are discussed. The problem of dark and light(More)
We propose a new paradigm of human-drone interaction through projecting image on the road and foot gestures. The proposed technology allowed to create a new type of tangible interaction with drone, i.e., DroneBall game for augmented sport and FlyMap to let a drone know where to fly. We developed LightAir system that makes possible information sharing,(More)
A mini-replicon was obtained for the caprolactam/salicylate degradation plasmid pBS270 (105 kb) of incompatibility group P-7 from Pseudomonas bacteria, and its nucleotide sequence was determined. A new gene that encodes a TrfA-like replication initiator was found on this replicon. The level of homology between this replication initiator and known proteins(More)
The structural diversity of basic replicons and repB gene was analyzed for the first time in a large collection of IncP-7 plasmids by PCR, restriction endonuclease analysis, and partial sequencing. It was found that the DNA fragment that contains the gene for UvrD-like helicase RepB is a part of all known P-7 replicons, but often acts as a hot insertion(More)
