TIS11, a member of the CCCH zinc finger protein family, functions as a positive transcriptional regulator. TIS11 was localized in both the cytoplasm and nucleus when transiently expressed in COS-7 cells. Upon treatment with leptomycin B, a specific inhibitor of the nuclear export receptor CRM1, a marked nuclear accumulation of TIS11 was observed, indicating(More)
In the higher plant, Arabidopsis thaliana, histidine-to-aspartate (His-to-Asp) phosphorelay signal transduction systems play crucial roles in propagation of environmental stimuli, including plant hormones. This plant has 11 sensor His-kinases, 5 histidine-containing phosphotransfer (HPt) factors (AHPs), and 20 response regulators (ARRs). To gain new insight(More)
A peptidase was purified from seeds of Canavalia ensiformis by extraction with water, ammonium sulfate precipitation, and successive chromatographies on DEAE-Toyopearl 650M, butyl-Toyopearl 650M, and G-3000 SW columns. The enzyme has an apparent molecular weight of 41,000. Activity is maximal at pH 9 and 60 degrees C. The enzyme hydrolyzed synthetic(More)
We screened soil samples for CO(2)-requiring extreme oligotrophs similar to Rhodococcus erythropolis N9T-4, which can grow on a basal salt agar medium without an organic carbon source. From 387 soil samples, three isolates were obtained and identified as Streptomyces spp. by 16S rDNA analysis. The isolates required gaseous CO(2) for growth and grew on a(More)
