Eighty-one strains of Yersinia enterocolitica biovar 1A representing several serotypes isolated from India, France, Germany and the USA were analyzed using ribotyping, 16S-23S rDNA intergenic spacer length polymorphism analysis (PCR-ribotyping) and gyrB restriction fragment length polymorphism. Ribotyping with BglI, NciI and EcoRV distinguished 81 strains(More)
Conditional cold-sensitive mutations in Era, an essential Escherichia coli GTPase, were isolated. Localized random polymerase chain reaction (PCR) mutagenesis employing Taq and T7 DNA polymerases under error prone amplification conditions was exploited to generate mutations in the era gene. A plasmid exchange technique was used to identify conditional(More)
BACKGROUND Bacillus anthracis (BA) is a major bioterrorism concern which has evolved complex regulatory mechanisms for its virulence factors. Secreted proteases play an imperative role in the pathogenesis of BA, however their regulation remains elusive. Two component systems (TCS) are often employed by bacteria to sense and adapt to the environmental(More)
Integrons are versatile gene acquisition systems that allow efficient capturing of exogenous genes and ensure their expression. Various classes of integrons possessing a wide variety of gene cassettes are ubiquitously distributed in enteric bacteria worldwide. The epidemiology of integrons associated multidrug resistance in Enterobacteriaceae is rapidly(More)
Era is an essential GTP binding protein in Escherichia coli. Two homologs of this protein, Sgp from Streptococcus mutans and Era from Coxiella burnetii, can substitute for the essential function of Era in E. coli. Site-specific and randomly generated Era mutants which may indicate regions of the protein that are of functional importance are described.
