Bacillus thuringiensis isolates from the Philippines: habitat distribution, delta-endotoxin diversity, and toxicity to rice stem borers (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae)Download
Abstract: Bacillus thuringiensis Berliner isolates were detected in 57% of 801 samples of rice grain dust, soil, rice field arthropods, and miscellaneous habitats (rice straw compost and mammal faeces) collected at 100 sites in the Philippines. The collection yielded 3950 isolates of B....
Purpose: The clusterin gene encodes a multi-functional protein that has been identified in different tissues, including a number of different eye tissues, primarily in the mouse and to a much lesser extent in humans. Clusterin has been implicated in a number of cellular processes such as lipid...
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...
The expression of the cyanobacterial recA gene, isolated from Anabaena variabilis, has been examined at the levels of transcript and protein abundance. Exposure of the cyanobacterium to a variety of DNA-damaging agents, including mitomycin C, methyl methanesulfonate, and UV irradiation, results...
