As the elaboration of pili from pilin subunits (BcpA1 and BcpA2) is a feature of B cereus strains, but not of B anthracis, these findings further corroborated the idea that this patient's infection was not caused by a bona fide B anthracis strain.
PCR SDA (COBAS Roche Amplicor) (BD ProbeTec) Type of DNA DNA nucleic acid amplified Nucleic-acid GC: Cytosine methyl GC: pilin gene targets transferase gene (M:Ngo P11) or pilin gene CT: omp1 gene on CT: omp1 gene on cryptic cryptic plasmid plasmid Differences Primer binds to DNA Uses isothermal technique, in method of gene sequence, which is which reduces non-specific amplification subsequently amplified, binding of primers.
22, the government achieved its first major victory in its efforts to break the oil strike when it captured the striker-controlled oil tanker Pilin Leon.
According to Xinhua news agency, an investigation and thorough verification had determined that the crash was an act of sabotage created when passenger Zhang Pilin started a fire on board the aircraft.
VirB2 protein is the major pilin subunit of the pilus that mediates the transfer of the T-DNA Agrobacterium to plants by lining the channel during the transfer from the bacterium to the plant cell (see Fig.
For the amplification and detection of GC, a region within the multicopy pilin gene-inverting protein homologue (13) was chosen.
The pilin protein, like an antibody molecule, can be divided into regions that are constant (invariant), characterized by single amino acid changes (semivariable) and characterized by larger insertions and deletions (hypervariable).
A gene located in this deletion encodes a putative type IV pilin, which may affect the colonization and virulence potential of these strains.
Serial isolates of Pseudomonas aeruginosa from a cystic fibrosis patient have identical pilin sequences.
