An unexpected finding emerging from large-scale genome analyses is that prokaryotes express ion channels belonging to molecular families long studied in neurons. Bacteria and archaea are now known to carry genes for potassium channels of the voltage-gated, inward rectifier and calcium-activated classes, ClC-type chloride channels, an ionotropic glutamate(More)
Plasmid pSUP5011 contains a pMBl origin of replication, an origin of transfer (oriT), and genes encoding resistance to the antibiotics ampicillin, chloramphenicol and kanamycin. pSUP5011 was conjugally mobilized from Escherichia coli into the non-heterocystous, filamentous, nitrogen-fixing cyanobacterium Plectonema boryanum UTEX 594 in the presence of a(More)
