PA0861 or RbdA in P aeruginosa has been characterized as a PDE, with both the PAS and GGDEF domains important for its biological functions .
PA0861 (or rbdA) was shown to be linked to positive regulation of bacterial motility and production of rhamnolipids, and also negative regulation of production of exopolysaccharides (21).
PA0861 or RbdA, which was reported to display the catalytic activity of PDE, once inactivated, the cellular concentration of c-di-GMP should be increased; with increased cellular c-diGMP, the expression of pyoverdine and pyochelin would be upregulated; and consequently, biofilm formation in the mutant strain will be increased.
The RBDA process also involved research commissioned by the Department, and many of the ACCs also commissioned their own research.
Most observers would conclude that the RDC achieved little by way of major new initiatives or reformed governance, and it failed to formulate a satisfactory response to the RBDA. (The then Minister offered the RDC the opportunity to formulate a joint response but the States and Territories probably saw it as Canberra's responsibility to make a response as it had commissioned the work).
These were never touched by the RDC partners or by SCORD, despite the RBDA's insistence that complex regional governance was a hindrance to better business and investment outcomes in the regions.
THE Federal Government (FG) has leased out 50,000 hectares of the River Basin Development Authorities (RBDAs) to commercial farmers to boost agricultural production.
It said the decision became imperative because most of the RBDAs land is underutilised.

there would have been marked improvement in the performance of the RBDAs
if the Authorities had concentrated their efforts and utilised their resources more judiciously in tackling their primary responsibilities, land reclamation/irrigation and allocating such lands to local farmers for more effective use in agricultural production.
Mr Alex Okoh, Director General, Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE), in a statement issued by Amina Othman, Head, Public Communications, BPE, on Friday in Abuja, said the RBDAs are the Niger-Delta, Sokoto-Rima, Ogun-Osun and Upper Niger.
He said this at the kick-off meeting for the commencement of transaction advisory services by Agri-Africa Consultant A and E Law and Partnership Consortium for the partial commercialisation of the four RBDAs.
