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)
Endophytes are microbes and fungi that live inside plant tissues without damaging the host. Herein we examine the dynamic changes in the endophytic bacterial community in potato (Solanum tuberosum) tuber in response to pathogenic infection by Pectobacterium atrosepticum, which causes soft rot in numerous economically important crops. We quantified community(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)
