This work reports on the antimicrobial activity in fresh sausage of marjoram (Origanum majorana L.) essential oil against several species of bacteria. The in vitro minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) was determined for 10 selected aerobic heterotrophic bacterial species. The antimicrobial activity of distinct concentrations of the essential oil based on(More)
The multidrug-resistant (MDR) phenotype is multifactorial, and cell lines presenting multiple resistance mechanisms might be good models to understand the importance of the various pathways involved. The present work characterized a MDR chronic myeloid leukemia cell line, derived from K562 through a selective process using daunorubicin. This MDR cell line(More)
Trypanosoma brucei, the etiologic agent of sleeping sickness, encodes a single intron-containing tRNA, tRNA(Tyr), and splicing is essential for its viability. In Archaea and Eukarya, tRNA splicing requires a series of enzymatic steps that begin with intron cleavage by a tRNA-splicing endonuclease and culminates with joining the resulting tRNA exons by a(More)
