As reported, the two-component system ColRS is involved in two completely different processes. It facilitates the root colonization ability of Pseudomonas fluorescens and is necessary for the Tn4652 transposition-dependent accumulation of phenol-utilizing mutants in Pseudomonas putida. To determine the role of the ColRS system in P. putida, we searched for(More)
BACKGROUND Conserved two-component system ColRS of Pseudomonas genus has been implicated in several unrelated phenotypes. For instance, deficiency of P. putida ColRS system results in lowered phenol tolerance, hindrance of transposition of Tn4652 and lysis of a subpopulation of glucose-grown bacteria. In order to discover molecular mechanisms behind these(More)
Spinocerebellar ataxias (SСAs) are a highly heterogeneous group of inherited neurological disorders. The symptoms of ataxia vary in individual patients and even within the same SCA subtype. A study of a four-generation family with autosomal dominant (AD) non-progressive SCA with mild symptoms was conducted. The genotyping of this family revealed no frequent(More)
