OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationship between psychological constructs related to professional and research integrity and moral reasoning among medical students. METHODS Medical students, 2nd-year (n = 208, 85.6% of 243 enrolled students), answered the moral reasoning test-defining issues test 2 (DIT2) and the Machiavellianism and Paulhus socially… (More)
In a previous study, we demonstrated the existence of a gene locus, nov, which affects resistance of Escherichia coli K-12 to the gyrase inhibitor novobiocin and, to a lesser degree, coumermycin (J. Rakonjac, M. Milic, D. Ajdic, D. Santos, R. Ivanisevic, and D. J. Savic, Mol. Microbiol. 6:1547-1553, 1992). In the present study, sequencing of the nov gene… (More)
cls and nov mutants have similar increased sensitivities to novobiocin and reduced levels of cardiolipin, both of which can be corrected by plasmid-borne copies of either wild-type gene. A comparison of the DNA sequences of both genes further verifies their identity.
We have identified a new gene locus (nov) affecting the resistance of Escherichia coli K-12 to novobiocin. The gene also affects, although to a lesser extent, tolerance to another gyrase inhibitor coumermycin. Transductional and complementation analysis show that nov is located between att phi 80 and the osmZ (hns) genes at minute 27 of the E. coli K-12… (More)
