Leptospirosis is a widely spread disease of global concern. Infection causes flu-like episodes with frequent severe renal and hepatic damage, such as haemorrhage and jaundice. In more severe cases, massive pulmonary haemorrhages, including fatal sudden haemoptysis, can occur. Here we report the complete genomic sequence of a representative virulent serovar… (More)
Highly purified preparations of the TyrR protein of Haemophilus influenzae Rd undergo specific and limited proteolytic cleavage during storage at 4 degreesC to generate two fragments of 28 and 8 kDa. Under nondenaturing conditions, the two fragments remain tightly associated. Nicked TyrR is identical to full-length TyrR in its operator binding… (More)
Clustering of housekeeping genes provides a unified model of gene order in the human genome. Intimate evolution of proteins. Proteome atomic content correlates with genome base composition. Codon-substitution models to detect adaptive evolution that account for heterogeneous selective pressures among site classes.
