The IncI1 plasmid R64 produces two kinds of sex pili: a thin pilus and a thick pilus. The thin pilus, which belongs to the type IV family, is required only for liquid matings. Fourteen genes, pilI to -V, were found in the DNA region responsible for the biogenesis of the R64 thin pilus (S.-R. Kim and T. Komano, J. Bacteriol. 179:3594-3603, 1997). In this(More)
The entire nucleotide sequence of the pil region of the IncI1 plasmid R64 was determined. Analysis of the sequence indicated that 14 genes, designated pilI through pilV, are involved in the formation of the R64 thin pilus. Protein products of eight pil genes were identified by the maxicell procedure. The pilN product was shown to be a lipoprotein by an(More)
Because most efforts to understand the molecular mechanisms underpinning fungal pathogenicity have focused on studying the function and role of individual genes, relatively little is known about how transcriptional machineries globally regulate and coordinate the expression of a large group of genes involved in pathogenesis. Using quantitative real-time(More)
Among 242 Japanese pancreatic cancer patients, three patients (1.2%) encountered life-threatening toxicities, including myelosuppression, after gemcitabine-based chemotherapies. Two of them carried homozygous CDA*3 (CDA208G>A [Ala70Thr]), and showed extremely low plasma cytidine deaminase activity and gemcitabine clearance. Our results suggest that(More)
