Acid production from rhamnose is a characteristic phenotype of Listeria monocytogenes. We report the identification of the rhamnose transport and utilization operon located at lmo2846 to lmo2851, including the rhamnose-dependent promoter P(rha). Expression of reporter genes under control of P(rha) on a single copy integration vector demonstrated its(More)
We present the complete de novo assembled genome sequences of Listeria monocytogenes strains WSLC 1001 (ATCC 19112) and WSLC 1042 (ATCC 23074) and Listeria ivanovii WSLC 3009, three strains frequently used for the propagation and study of bacteriophages because they are presumed to be free of inducible prophages.
Deltorphins I and II (Tyr-D-Ala-Phe-Asp-Val-Val-Gly NH2 and Tyr-D-Ala-Phe-Glu-Val-Val-Gly NH2) display a high degree of delta-opioid receptor selectivity. Since they lack the intervening Gly3 residue found between the Tyr and Phe aromatic moieties in pentapeptide enkephalins, deltorphins I and II resemble a previously described series of cyclic(More)
To enable specific and tightly controlled gene expression both in vitro and during the intracellular lifecycle of the pathogen Listeria monocytogenes, a TetR-dependent genetic induction system was developed. Highest concentration of cytoplasmic TetR and best repression of tetO-controlled genes was obtained by tetR expression from the synthetic promoter Pt17(More)
