Transcription factors play a key role to enable plants to cope with abiotic stresses. DREB2 regulates the expression of several stress-inducible genes and constitutes major hubs in the water stress signalling webs. We cloned and characterized a novel gene encoding the FpDREB2A transcription factor from Fraxinus pennsylvanica, and a yeast activity assay(More)
Microbial fermentation conditions are dynamic, due to transcriptional induction, nutrient consumption, or changes to incubation conditions. In this study, 13C-metabolic flux analysis was used to characterize two violacein-producing E. coli strains with vastly different productivities, and to profile their metabolic adjustments resulting from external(More)
Two new 1-D Cd(II) complexes, {[Cd(imb)(μ2-Cl)Cl]·CH3OH}n (1) and {[Cd(imb)(μ2Cl)Cl]·DMF}n (2), have been synthesized by the reactions of the unsymmetrical ligand 2-(1Himidazol-1-yl-methyl)-1H-benzimidazole (imb) with CdCl2·2.5H2O in methanol or methanol/DMF solution at room temperature, and structurally characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction.(More)
Relatively little information is available regarding the variability of microbial communities inhabiting deeper soil layers. We investigated the distribution of soil microbial communities down to 1.2 m in 5-year-old Robinia pseudoacacia 'Idaho' soil by 454 sequencing of the 16S RNA gene. The average number of sequences per sample was 12,802. The Shannon and(More)
Diverse factors like chromatic dispersion, polarization mode dispersion, attenuation, non-linear effects, second order and third order dispersion impress limit on the performance of all the optical fiber networks. Dispersion compensation fiber are being used in this paper , we projected three techniques (pre, post, and mix-compensation of dispersion(More)
