The growth of Acinetobacter sp. strain HO1-N on hexadecanol results in the formation of intracytoplasmic membranes and intracellular rectangular inclusions containing one of the end products of hexadecanol metabolism, hexadecyl palmitate. The intracellular inclusions were purified and characterized as "wax ester inclusions" consisting of 85.6% hexadecyl(More)
BACKGROUND Pyrosequencing technology has the potential to rapidly sequence HIV-1 viral quasispecies without requiring the traditional approach of cloning. In this study, we investigated the utility of ultra-deep pyrosequencing to characterize genetic diversity of the HIV-1 gag quasispecies and assessed the possible contribution of pyrosequencing technology(More)
Teratomas are bizarre tumours which contain multiple tissues of kinds foreign to the part of the body in which they arise. Within teratomas these tissues can be organised into recognisable organs, limbs and, in some instances, structures which resemble a complete fetus (1,2,3). These 'monstrous' features give these tumours their name (teras=monster, in(More)
