Conjugative transposon Tn916 from Enterococcus faecalis DS16 encodes tetracycline resistance (Tet M) as well as determinants necessary for its own movement. Determination of the nucleotide sequence of Tn916 has been completed. The element is 18,032 bp in length and has an overall G+C content of 38.8%. Twenty-four potential open reading frames (ORFs) were(More)
The gene coding for gelatinase (also called metalloendopeptidase II; microbial proteinase, EC 3.4.24.4) of Enterococcus faecalis subsp. liquefaciens strain OG1-10 was cloned in an Escherichia coli-Enterococcus shuttle vector, and its nucleotide sequence was determined. The DNA sequence encodes one large open reading frame (ORF) with 509 amino acid residues.(More)
The nucleotide sequence of the tetracycline resistance determinant tet(M), located on conjugative transposon Tn916 of Enterococcus faecalis, was determined and found to encode a 72,486-dalton protein exhibiting a high degree of homology with other tet(M) determinants. A short open reading frame corresponding to a 28-amino-acid peptide and containing a(More)
The rate-limiting step in movement of the conjugative transposon Tn916, originally identified in Enterococcus faecalis, is believed to be an excision event that generates a non-replicative circular intermediate. When present on a plasmid vector in Escherichia coli, Tn916 generally excises at a high frequency. It was reported previously that insertion of Tn5(More)
OBJECTIVE Paliperidone is the active metabolite of risperidone. This single-center, double-blind, randomized, single-dose study characterized the pharmacokinetics of 3 mg and 9 mg of paliperidone ER OROS in healthy Chinese subjects. METHODS 24 subjects (13 male, 11 female), aged 19-35 years, with a BMI of 19.0-24.6 kg/m(2) participated. Blood samples were(More)
