The stability of messenger ribonucleic acid during sporulation in Bacillus subtilis.
Abstract The stability of postlogarithmic mRNA has been assessed in Bacillus subtilis during sporulation time periods. The appearance of refractile bodies, alkaline phosphatase synthesis, and totalExpand

Construction of a Bacillus subtilis double mutant deficient in extracellular alkaline and neutral proteases.
A mutant strain of Bacillus subtilis carrying lesions in the structural genes for extracellular neutral (nprE) and serine (aprA) proteases was constructed by the gene conversion technique. ThisExpand

Cellulosomes: plant-cell-wall-degrading enzyme complexes
Cellulose, the main structural component of plant cell walls, is the most abundant carbohydrate polymer in nature. Although abundant, it is extremely difficult to degrade, as it is insoluble and isExpand

Characterization of two noncellulosomal subunits, ArfA and BgaA, from Clostridium cellulovorans that cooperate with the cellulosome in plant cell wall degradation.
Plant cell wall degradation by Clostridium cellulovorans requires the cooperative activity of its cellulases and hemicellulases. To characterize the alpha-L-arabinosidases that are involved inExpand

Characterization of the cellulose-binding domain of the Clostridium cellulovorans cellulose-binding protein A.
Cellulose-binding protein A (CbpA), a component of the cellulase complex of Clostridium cellulovorans, contains a unique sequence which has been demonstrated to be a cellulose-binding domain (CBD).Expand

Interactions of opioid and chemokine receptors: oligomerization of mu, kappa, and delta with CCR5 on immune cells.
Activation of opioid receptors by morphine was previously shown to specifically induce the expression of chemokine receptor CCR5, promoting simian AIDS virus entry and replication in immune cells.Expand

Synergistic effects on crystalline cellulose degradation between cellulosomal cellulases from Clostridium cellulovorans.
Clostridium cellulovorans produces a multienzyme cellulose-degrading complex called the cellulosome. In this study, we determined the synergistic effects on crystalline cellulose degradation by threeExpand
