Regularly sized Ni nanoclusters (NCs) have been grown on a graphene Moire on Rh(J 11). Using scanning tunneling microscopy, we determine that initial growth of Ni at 150 K leads to preferential nucleation of monodispersed NCs at specific sites of the Moire superstructure. However, a defined long-range ordering of NCs with increasing coverage is not(More)
We report an element-specific investigation of electronic and milgnetic properties of the graphene/ Ni(111) system. Using x-ray magnetic circular dichroism, the occurrence of an induced magnetism of the carbon atoms in the graphene layer is observed. We attribute this magnetic moment to the strong hybridization between C 'TT and Ni 3d valence band states.(More)
Unique restriction endonucleases Bpu 10l and Bsil have been isolated from Bacillus pumilas and Bacillus sphaericus, respectively. The recognition sequences and cleavage points of these enzymes have been determinated as 5'-CC1TNAGC-3'/3'-GGANT1CG-5' for Bpu 10l and 5'-C1TCGTG-3'/3'-GAGCA1C-5' for Bsil. Restriction endonucleases Bpu 10l and Bsil represent a(More)
Restriction endonucleases (RENs) were detected in 650 microbial strains isolated from water columns and bottom sediments of deep rift lakes, Baikal (Russia) and Nyasa (Southeastern Africa). They enzymes included unique (Fan I, Aca I, and Sse 91) and very rare (Bsi I, and Cci N I) species not typical of aquatic ecosystems. Water columns, deep cores, and(More)
BstF5I, a new restriction endonuclease (ENase) from Bacillus stearothermophilus F5, has been discovered. This enzyme recognizes 5'-GGATG-3' and cleaves DNA, generating a 2-base 3'extension: 5'-GGATG NN[symbol: see text]-3' 3'-CCTAC[symbol: see text]NN-5' BstF5I is an isoschizomer of FokI and seems to be evolutionarily close to other(More)
The restriction endonuclease BsiI from Bacillus sphaericus was isolated. The recognition sequence and cleavage point of enzyme BsiI have been determined as (sequence: see text). This restriction endonuclease is not an isoschizomer of any known restriction endonucleases and differs from other enzymes: it hydrolyses DNA into unsymmetrical recognition sequence.
A simple technique is proposed for detection of bacterial restriction endonucleases. Analysis is performed directly in the cells from colonies cultivated on Petri dishes. The cells collected with an inoculation loop are treated with lysozyme and Triton X-100. After centrifugation the supernatant is tested for endonuclease activity. The technique enables up(More)
The recognition site of a new restriction endonuclease from Acinetobacter calcoaceticus BS was determined. This is a nonpalindromic sequence. AccBSI restrictase cleaves DNA chains in the middle of the recognition sequence; therefore, ligation of its digestion fragments restored AccBSI recognition sites and generated palindromic sequences recognized by SacI(More)
