The chromosomal arsenic resistance genes of Thiobacillus ferrooxidans have an unusual arrangement and confer increased arsenic and antimony resistance to Escherichia coli
(American Society for Microbiology, 2000-05)
The chromosomal arsenic resistance genes of the acidophilic, chemolithoautotrophic, biomining bacterium Thiobacillus ferrooxidans were cloned and sequenced. Homologues of four arsenic resistance genes, arsB, arsC, arsH, ...
Improved ethanol productivity from lignocellulosic hydrolysates by Escherichia coli with regulated glucose utilization
(BioMed Central, 2018-05-02)
Background: Lignocellulosic ethanol could offer a sustainable source to meet the increasing worldwide demand for fuel. However, efficient and simultaneous metabolism of all types of sugars in lignocellulosic hydrolysates ...
A broad host range reporter plasmid for the analysis of divergent promoter regions
(Academy of Science of South Africa, 2008)
Although many vectors exist for Escherichia coli and closely related species, there are few broad host range vectors that can be conjugated into a large variety of Gram-negative bacteria. We have constructed a broad host ...
Escherichia coli serotypes associated with urinary tract infections in the Western Cape
(Health & Medical Publishing Group, 1974)
Examination of 3,261 specimens of urine from patients with urinary tract infections led to the isolation of E. coli types from 933 samples (28.6%). Serological typing revealed 222 isolates (23.8%) as urinary or as ...
