A 0.9-kb open reading frame encoding a unique 32-kDa protein was identified downstream of the recA gene of Porphyromonas gingivalis. Reverse transcription-PCR and Northern blot analysis showed that both the recA gene and this open reading frame are part of the same transcriptional unit. This cloned fragment was insertionally inactivated using the ermF-ermAM(More)
Pneumocystis jirovecii is a major cause of life-threatening pneumonia in immunosuppressed patients including transplant recipients and those with HIV/AIDS, yet surprisingly little is known about the biology of this fungal pathogen. Here we report near complete genome assemblies for three Pneumocystis species that infect humans, rats and mice. Pneumocystis(More)
Macrophages can be reprogramming, such as the classical activated macrophage, M1 or alternative activated macrophages, M2 phenotype following the milieu danger signals, especially inflammatory factors. Macrophage reprogramming is now considered as a key determinant of disease development and/or regression. Experimental autoimmune myocarditis (EAM) is(More)
