The Eco29kI restriction-modification system (RMS2) has been found to be localized on the plasmid pECO29 occurring naturally in the Escherichia coli strain 29k (Pertzev, A.V., Ruban, N.M., Zakharova, M.V., Beletskaya, I.V., Petrov, S.I., Kravetz, A.N., Solonin, A.S., 1992. Eco29kI, a novel plasmid encoded restriction endonuclease from Escherichia coli.(More)
The capacity of pathogens to respond to environmental signals, such as iron concentration, is key to bacterial survival and establishment of a successful infection. Bacillus cereus is a widely distributed bacterium with distinct pathogenic properties. Hemolysin II (HlyII) is one of its pore-forming cytotoxins and has been shown to be involved in bacterial(More)
To investigate the distribution of the hemolysin II determinant among strains of Bacillus cereus and Bacillus thuringiensis, thirteen strains of B. cereus and fourteen strains of B. thuringiensis strains were tested for hybridization of their chromosomal DNAs with a DNA probe containing the B. cereus hemolysin II gene. In addition, the production of(More)
HlyIIR is a negative transcriptional regulator of hemolysin II gene from B. cereus. It binds to a long DNA perfect inverted repeat (44bp) located upstream the hlyII gene. Here we show that HlyIIR is dimeric in solution and in bacterial cells. No protein-protein interactions between dimers and no significant modification of target DNA conformation upon(More)
Loss of mechanical loading, or disuse, rapidly precipitates locally mediated bone resorption. However, the pathway by which this process is initiated and mediated is poorly understood. In this study, we used a complementary in vivo and in vitro approach to determine whether disuse-induced osteocyte hypoxia resulted in upregulation of the hypoxia-dependent(More)
The physical map of the plasmid pSACII1 carrying the genes of restriction-modification system Eco29kI (isoschizomer of SacII) was determined. The cloning of the Eco29kI endonuclease and methylase genes into the plasmid vector pUC129 produced recombinant strain Escherichia coli K802[pECO29A15] with Eco29kI synthesis level about 100 times higher than in the(More)
Primary structures of phage T5- and Escherichia coli-encoded tRNA(Phe) are distinct at four out of 11 positions known as identity elements for E. coli phenylalanyl-tRNA synthetase (FRS). In order to reveal structural requirements for FRS recognition, aminoacylation of wild-type phage T5 tRNA(Phe) gene transcript and mutants containing substitutions of the(More)
The article describes substitutions in bacteriophage T4 RNase H which provide so called das-effect. Phage T4 DNA arrest suppression (das) mutations have been described to be capable of partially suppressing the phage DNA arrest phenotype caused by a dysfunction in genes 46 and/or 47 (also known as Mre11/Rad50 complex). Genetic mapping of das13 (one of the(More)
