We report the nucleotide sequences of iaaM and iaaH, the genetic determinants for, respectively, tryptophan 2-monooxygenase and indoleacetamide hydrolase, the enzymes that catalyze the conversion of L-tryptophan to indoleacetic acid in the tumor-forming bacterium Pseudomonas syringae pv. savastanoi. The sequence analysis indicates that the iaaM locus(More)
Two types of transposable elements, IS51 and IS52 (IS, insertion sequence), were found in Pseudomonas syringae subsp. savastanoi (P. savastanoi) that spontaneously insert into and inactivate iaaM; the insertion results in the loss of indoleacetic acid production and attenuation of virulence. The nucleotide sequences of both IS elements have sizes and(More)
Expression of the indoleacetic acid (iaa) operon, which contributes to the virulence of the phytopathogenic bacterium Pseudomonas syringae subsp. savastanoi, was monitored by using broad-host-range lacZ reporter gene plasmids. A combination of translational (gene) fusions and transcriptional (operon) fusions of P. syringae subsp. savastanoi sequences to(More)
Saccharomycopsis lipolytica CX161-1B produced at least three extracellular acid proteases during exponential growth in medium containing glycerol, Difco Proteose Peptone, and mineral salts at pH 3.4 (Difco Laboratories, Detroit, Mich.). Little extracellular acid protease activity was produced with glutamic acid as the sole nitrogen source, somewhat higher(More)
GbaSM-4 cells, smooth muscle cells derived from brain basilar artery, which express both 210-kDa long and 130-kDa short isoforms of myosin light chain kinase (MLCK), were infected with an adenovirus vector carrying a 1.4-kb catalytic portion of MLCK-cDNA in an antisense orientation. Western blot analysis showed that the expression of short MLCK was(More)
This paper studies an architecture of multi-server Web industrial facility monitoring systems using only commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) Web browser's existing functionality. First we introduce our original method of background change-of-state (CoS) communication while the user interface is focusing to a currently-connected foreground Web server. The method(More)
