A recA-like gene isolated from the cyanobacterium Anabaena variabilis was cloned and partially characterized. When introduced into Escherichia coli recA mutants, the 7.5-kilobase-pair plasmid-borne DNA insert restored resistance to methyl methanesulfonate and UV irradiation, as well as...
Background Gene conversion causes a non-reciprocal transfer of genetic information between similar sequences. Gene conversion can both homogenize genes and recruit point mutations thereby shaping the evolution of multigene families. In the rice genome, the large number of duplicated genes...
Vaccinia virus DNA polymerase and ribonucleotide reductase: their role in replication, recombination and drug resistanceDownload
Despite the eradication of smallpox, poxviruses continue to cause human disease around the world. At the core of poxvirus replication is the efficient and accurate synthesis and repair of the viral genome. The viral DNA polymerase is critical for these processes. Acyclic nucleoside phosphonate...
Ataxia telangiectasia–mutated (ATM) and ataxia telangiectasia–related (ATR) kinases are conserved regulators of cellular responses to double strand breaks (DSBs). During meiosis, however, the functions of these kinases in DSB repair and the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) damage checkpoint are...
Smallpox was eradicated using vaccinia viruses (VACV) as vaccines, including Dryvax, a calf-lymph vaccine derived from the New York City Board of Health (NYCBH) strain, and TianTan, a chicken egg cultured vaccine used exclusively in China. To take advantage of the next generation sequencing...
Comparative genomics of Lactobacillus reuteri from sourdough reveals adaptation of an intestinal symbiont to food fermentationsDownload
Lactobacillus reuteri is a dominant member of intestinal microbiota of vertebrates, and occurs in food fermentations. The stable presence of L. reuteri in sourdough provides the opportunity to study the adaptation of vertebrate symbionts to an extra-intestinal habitat. This study evaluated this...
Enhanced N2 and O2 densities inferred from EISCAT observations of Pc5 waves and associated electron precipitationDownload
An advanced two-dimensional numerical model of the coupled ionosphere and magnetosphere is used to analyze EISCAT observations of ULF waves that are accompanied by electron precipitation with a wide energy spectrum. The observations show columns of significantly enhanced electron density produced...
Characterization of Norovirus strains and a seroprevalence study to understand the fluctuation of outbreak activity in Alberta, CanadaDownload
Norovirus (NoV) is recognized as the leading agent causing gastroenteritis among individuals of all ages. Historical data of NoV outbreak surveillance in Alberta, Canada, from the period July 2000 to June 2008 demonstrated a biennial pattern of NoV outbreak activity, in which peaks of high...
