Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a ubiquitous environmental bacterium that is one of the top three causes of opportunistic human infections. A major factor in its prominence as a pathogen is its intrinsic resistance to antibiotics and disinfectants. Here we report the complete sequence of P. aeruginosa strain PAO1. At 6.3 million base pairs, this is the largest(More)
Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a ubiquitous gram-negative bacterium, is capable of colonizing a wide range of environmental niches and can also cause serious infections in humans. In order to understand the genetic makeup of pathogenic P. aeruginosa strains, a method of differential hybridization of arrayed libraries of cloned DNA fragments was developed. An M13(More)
Several million people are exposed to dioxin and dioxin-like compounds, primarily through food consumption. Skin lesions historically called "chloracne" are the most specific sign of abnormal dioxin exposure and classically used as a key marker in humans. We followed for 5 years a man who had been exposed to the most toxic dioxin,(More)
The genomes of the two clonally derived Pseudomonas aeruginosa prototypic strains PAO1 and DSM-1707 differ by the presence of a 2. 19-Mb inversion including oriC. Integration of two Flp recombinase target sites near the rrn operons containing the inversion endpoints in PAO1 led to Flp-catalyzed inversion of the intervening 1.59-Mb fragment, including oriC,(More)
Primary cutaneous follicle centre lymphoma (PCFCL) is a rare cutaneous B cell lymphoma in middle-age adults with excellent prognosis. Here we present a case of a patient with a PCFCL in the form of a giant tumour of the scalp in combination with a myeloproliferative neoplasm, JAK2V617F positive essential thrombocythaemia. This case may be of interest(More)
Porokeratoma is a rare, relatively newly described and still unclear entity. Here, we describe the case of a 52-year-old male patient who presented with four well-defined, verrucous and hyperkeratotic lesions. Microscopically, one of the lesions showed acanthopapillomatosis overlying compact orthokeratosis. Prominent broad and confluent cornoid lamellae(More)
