Novel as1 and as2 defects in leaf adaxial-abaxial polarity reveal the requirement for ASYMMETRIC LEAVES1 and 2 and ERECTA functions in specifying leaf adaxial identity
The shoot apical meristem (SAM) of seed plants is the site at which lateral organs are formed. Once organ primordia initiate from the SAM, they establish polarity along the adaxial-abaxial,Expand

Chromosome-encoded gene cluster for the metabolic pathway that converts aniline to TCA-cycle intermediates in Delftia tsuruhatensis AD9.
Delftia tsuruhatensis AD9 was isolated as an aniline-degrading bacterium from the soil surrounding a textile dyeing plant. The gene cluster involved in aniline degradation was cloned from the totalExpand

The Putative RNA-Dependent RNA Polymerase RDR6 Acts Synergistically with ASYMMETRIC LEAVES1 and 2 to Repress BREVIPEDICELLUS and MicroRNA165/166 in Arabidopsis Leaf Developmentw⃞
The Arabidopsis thaliana ASYMMETRIC LEAVES1 (AS1) and AS2 genes are important for repressing class I KNOTTED1-like homeobox (KNOX) genes and specifying leaf adaxial identity in leaf development.Expand

Removal of humic substances from soil DNA using aluminium sulfate.
Direct extraction of soil DNA has become essential for the study of soil microorganisms. Humic substances co-extracted during DNA retrieval is a big problem because it greatly inhibits the enzymesExpand

Phenazine-1-carboxylic acid is negatively regulated and pyoluteorin positively regulated by gacA in Pseudomonas sp. M18.
The biosynthesis of antimicrobial metabolites is controlled by the GacS/GacA two-component regulatory system in Pseudomonas species. The production of phenazine-1-carboxylic acid and pyoluteorin isExpand

Identification and characterization of pltZ, a gene involved in the repression of pyoluteorin biosynthesis in Pseudomonas sp. M18.
A new regulator gene named pltZ, which is located downstream of the plt gene cluster in the genome of Pseudomonas sp. M18, was identified, sequenced and characterized in this report. The deducedExpand

The RNA chaperone Hfq regulates antibiotic biosynthesis in the rhizobacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa M18.
The rhizosphere microbe Pseudomonas aeruginosa M18 shows strong antifungal activities, mainly due to the biosynthesis of antibiotics like pyoluteorin (Plt) and phenazine-1-carboxylic acid (PCA). TheExpand
