ABSTRACT A chimeric gene fusion cassette, consisting of a secretory sequence from barley alpha-amylase joined to a modified cecropin (MB39) coding sequence and placed under control of the promoter and terminator from the potato proteinase inhibitor II (PiII) gene, was introduced into tobacco by Agrobacterium-mediated transformation. Transgenic and control(More)
The gene encoding N epsilon-(indole-3-acetyl)-L-lysine synthetase, iaaL, from Pseudomonas savastanoi was localized within a 4.25-kilobase EcoRI fragment derived from pIAA1 of oleander strain EW 2009. Two open reading frames of 606 and 1188 nucleotides were identified upon sequencing, which directed the in vitro synthesis of Mr 21,000 and Mr 44,000 proteins.(More)
Bacteriophages isolated from culture supernatants of Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae and from sewage were identified. The DNA from each phage was isolated and digested with the restriction endonuclease EcoRI. Eight isolates were determined to be different, with two phage isolates from sewage having restriction patterns identical to two phages from culture(More)
This research is to study the performance of cloud computing platforms in the perspective of information technology (IT) management. Two separate test clouds of Eucalyptus and OpenStack were established on identical hardware. The BYTE UNIX benchmark suite was employed to conduct various performance tests on both clouds. While the OpenStack cloud out(More)
A conjugation system for mapping the chromosome of Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae PS224 has been developed using the IncP-10 plasmid R91-5; pMO22, a Tn501-loaded derivative of R91-5; and pMO75, R91-5 loaded with Tn5. Nine different donor origins were identified with R91-5 and pMO22. By insertion of Tn5 into various sites of the chromosome, an additional(More)
Bacteriophages isolated from culture supernatants of Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae and from sewage transferred various chromosomal genes to P. syringae PS224. Linkage between arginine and tryptophan loci was demonstrated. The number of transductants recovered per milliliter was not altered appreciably by UV irradiation of selected phage isolates. In(More)
