The dct locus of Rhodobacter capsulatus encodes a high-affinity transport system for the C4-dicarboxylates malate, succinate, and fumarate. The nucleotide sequence of the region downstream of the previously sequenced dctP gene (encoding a periplasmic C4-dicarboxylate-binding protein) was determined. Two open reading frames (ORFs) of 681 bp (dctQ) and 1,320(More)
An experimental system that permits sensitive and reproducible detection of equine herpesvirus 1 (EHV-1)-specific cytotoxic T-lymphocyte (CTL) activity in the horse was developed. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) collected from immune horses were restimulated in vitro by culture with live EHV-1. Cytotoxic activity against virus-infected, pokeweed(More)
A procedure is described for the dual staining of lymphocytes with Hoechst 33342 (Ho342) to examine cell cycle position, and merocyanine 540 (MC540) that allows for the analysis of cells entering the early stages of apoptosis. Ho342 is a DNA specific dye and MC540 detects membrane phospholipid domain changes, some of which are associated with apoptotic(More)
Cytochrome c' from Rhodobacter capsulatus has been shown to confer resistance to nitric oxide (NO). In this study, we demonstrated that the amount of cytochrome c' synthesized for buffering of NO is insufficient to account for the resistance to NO but that the cytochrome-dependent resistance mechanism involves the catalytic breakdown of NO, under aerobic(More)
We report the cloning and sequencing of the gene containing cytochrome c' (cycP) from the photosynthetic purple bacterium Rhodobacter capsulatus and the regions flanking that gene. Mutant strains unable to synthesize cytochrome c' had increased sensitivity to nitrosothiols and to nitric oxide (which binds to the heme moiety of cytochrome c').
INTRODUCTION Doxycycline is highly effective, inexpensive with a broad therapeutic spectrum and exceptional bioavailability. However these benefits have been overshadowed by its classification alongside the tetracyclines - class D drugs, contraindicated in pregnancy and in children under 8 years of age. Doxycycline-treatable diseases are emerging as leading(More)
