Whether the MDCK cell line might adapt to grow in serum-free Hybris-2 medium and influenza viruses might be reproduced in the adapted cells was studied. Seventeen passages using the Hybris-2 medium yielded cells adapted to growth in this medium (MDCK-BS). The reproduction of influenza A (H1N1 and H3N2) and B viruses versus the cells cultured in Eagle's(More)
A system for introduction of plasmids into industrial producers of antibiotics chlortetracycline and bialaphos using intergeneric conjugation of Escherichia coli and Streptomyces was developed. Low level stability of inheritance of autonomously replicating DNA in recipient strains was shown. Site-specific integration of the conjugative-integrative vector(More)
The object of the study was a strain of Streptomyces hygroscopicus producing bialaphos, an antibiotic used as a herbicide, which is promising and ecologically safe. Molecular cloning of a bialaphos resistance gene (bar) was performed in the recipient strain, S. lividans TK64, within the 2.0-kb DNA fragment with the plasmid pIJ699. Introduction of a bar gene(More)
Studies of regulation of antibiotic synthesis involved both basic and applied aspects of biology of antibiotic producers. This paper is a survey of published experimental data and key hypotheses for the regulation of antibiotic synthesis in bacteria of the genus Streptomyces. Summarized data on transcriptional regulatory systems of gene clusters responsible(More)
Unicellular organisms are viewed as the best suitable objects for studying environmental effects, including the field of gravity, on living beings at the cellular level. Investigations of unicellular free-living eukaryotic organisms in gravitational and space biology help resolve both theoretical problems and practical problems associated with the design(More)
The paper gives the results of investigating the cultured tissues from patients with breast cancer (BC) and those with neuroblastoma, by applying both the traditional studies and molecular genetic techniques (FISH). The cultures from the patients with neuroblastoma represented as three cell types--N, S, and I. There are certain similarities between the cell(More)
A chromosomal determinant of Streptomyces hygroscopicus, functioning as a positive regulator of the bialaphos-resistance gene bar in the model strain S. lividans, was conjugatively transferred into a bialaphos (BAP) producer through pVGTB24 plasmid. The plasmid is unable to replicate autonomously in S. hygroscopicus, but integrates into its chromosome via(More)
The bacterial hemoglobin vhb gene was cloned from sliding bacterium Vitreoscilla sp. as an element of the system ensuring survival of this microorganism in an environment that contains insufficient amount of oxygen. The vhb gene was transferred from Escherichia coli to some Streptomyces strains, producers of antibiotics, by the method of intergeneric(More)
Streptomyces hygroscopicus ATCC21705 is an organism producing bialaphos, a promising ecologically safe antibiotic of peptide nature. An unknown determinant was cloned within the 1.4-kb SsH fragment of chromosomal DNA of S. hygroscopicus. Its presence along with the bar gene in the hybrid plasmid PVGB21 increased expression of the phenotype resistance to(More)
