Appl. Environ. Microbiol. 76, 829–42. Lysogeny and sporulation in Bacillus isolates from the Gulf of Mexico. 2010

Mobberley, J., Authement, R.N., Segall, A.M., Edwards, R.A., Slepecky, R.A. and Paul, J.H.

Notes: Certain bacteriophages can promote host cell sporulation under unfavorable conditions to increase survival of the host and prophage. These types of phages, known as spore-converting phages, have been found in terrestrial Bacillus species. In this article the authors examined the effect of prophages on sporulation of 11 Bacillus isolates from the Gulf of Mexico. Potential prophages in the Bacillus isolates were detected by PCR using unique PCR primer sets for each prophage genome and GoTaq® Green Master Mix. One of these isolates, B14905, was examined in more detail; the genome of this isolate was isolated using the Wizard® Genomic DNA Purification Kit, then sequenced. (4091)

J. Exp. Bot. 61, 191–202. Physiological and molecular changes in Oryza meridionalis Ng., a heat-tolerant species of wild rice. 2010

Scafaro, A.P., Haynes, P.A. and Atwell, B.J.

Notes: The authors compared seedling growth rates, photosynthesis rates and expression levels of heat-responsive genes in the heat-resistant wild rice Oryza meridionalis and the domesticated rice O. sativa when grown at optimal and elevated temperatures. Proteins that were up- or downregulated in response to heat were identified by two-dimensional gel electrophoresis coupled with nano liquid chromatography on line with tandem mass spectrometry (nanoLC-MS/MS). Trypsin was used to cleave proteins prior to nanoLC-MS/MS. Semi-quantitative RT-PCR was performed using the GoTaq® Green Master Mix to determine if the heat-responsive proteins were transcriptionally regulated. (4092)

Appl. Environ. Microbiol. 76, 2783–90. Revelation by single-nucleotide polymorphism genotyping that mutations leading to a premature stop codon in inlA are common among Listeria monocytogenes isolates from ready-to-eat foods but not human listeriosis cases. 2010

Van Stelten, A., Simpson, J.M., Ward, T.J. and Nightingale, K.K.

Notes: Listeria monocytogenes uses the internalin A protein (InlA) to cross the intestinal barrier and cause foodborne illness. Mutations in inlA can introduce a premature stop codon, producing a truncated InlA protein that is secreted rather than associated with the bacterial cell wall. Strains with these inlA mutations have reduced virulence. The authors describe an inlA single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP)-based genotyping assay to distinguish isolates with the inlA mutations and use this assay to screen >1,000 L. monocytogenes isolates from ready-to-eat foods and human listeriosis cases. The assay involves amplification of the full-length inlA gene using GoTaq® Colorless Master Mix, purification of amplified products, then single-base-pair extension reactions. (4099)

Nucl. Acids Res. 38, 660–71. Analysis of acyclic nucleoside modifications in siRNAs finds sensitivity at position 1 that is restored by 5'-terminal phosphorylation both in vitro and in vivo. 2009

Kenski, D.M., Cooper, A.J., Li, J.J., Willingham, A.T., Haringsma, H.J., Young, T.A., Kuklin, N.A., Jones, J.J., Cancilla, M.T., McMasters, D.R., Mathur, M., Sachs, A.B. and Flanagan, W.M.

Notes: The authors studied the effect of nucleoside modifications in short interfering RNA (siRNA) on 5´ phosphorylation by Clp1 kinase, binding to the Argonaute protein Ago2 and Ago2-mediated cleavage. Mice were injected with 6mg/kg of a siRNA targeting apolipoprotein B (apoB), and total RNA was isolated from the livers after 24 hours. 5´ rapid amplification of cDNA ends (5´ RACE) was used to monitor mRNA cleavage and degradation, as cleaved target RNA yields a 150bp amplification product and uncleaved RNA does not yield an amplification product under the amplification conditions. The amplification steps of the 5´ RACE protocol were performed using GoTaq® Colorless Master Mix and gene-specific primers. (4097)

Plant Physiol. 146, 1469–81. Deregulation of maize C4 photosynthetic development in a mesophyll cell-defective mutant. 2008

Covshoff, S., Majeran, W., Liu, P., Kolkman, J.M., van Wijk, K.J. and Brutnell, T.P.

Notes: The authors identified the maize homolog of hcf136 (Zmhcf136), a gene involved in photosynthesis, and used an RNA blot to determine if ZmHcf136 transcripts accumulate preferentially in mesophyll cells. DNA probes for Zmhcf136 and several cell-specific markers were generated by PCR using GoTaq® Green Master Mix, gel purified and radiolabeled prior to use in the RNA blots. To examine differences in protein accumulation and localization in wildtype and hcf136 mutants, proteins from subcellular fractions were subjected to two-dimensional gel electrophoresis, and spots of interest were excised, digested with Sequencing Grade Modified Trypsin, then analyzed by electrospray ionization-tandem mass spectrometry.

J. Clin. Oncol. 26, 5783-8. Feasibility of screening for Lynch Syndrome among patients with colorectal cancer. 2008

Hampel H, Frankel WL, Martin E, Arnold M, Khanduja K, Kuebler P, Clendenning M, Sotamaa K, Prior T, Westman JA, Panescu J, Fix D, Lockman J, LaJeunesse J, Comeras I, de la Chapelle A.

Notes: Lynch syndrome (LS) is due to mutations in at least four DNA mismatch repair (MMR) genes. There are two tumor characteristics that can be screened for in an attempt to identify patients with CRC who are most likely to have LS. These characteristics are microsatellite instability (MSI) and loss of one or two of the MMR proteins in the tumor compared to normal tissue. MSI testing and IHC for the four mismatch repair proteins was performed on 500 tumors from unselected patients with CRC. If either MSI or IHC was abnormal, complete mutation analysis for the mismatch repair genes was performed. GoTaq Master Mix (Cat.# M7122, Cat.# M7132) (4111)

Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 104, 10637–10642. Commensal and pathogenic Escherichia coli use a common pilus adherence factor for epithelial cell colonization. 2007

Rendón, M.A., Saldaña, Z., Erdem, A.L., Monteiro-Neto, V., Vázquez, A., Kaper, J.B., Puente, J.L. and Girón, J.A.

Notes: The authors identified an adherence factor of enterohemorrhagic E. coli that is involved in colonization of cultured epithelial cells. This factor, named E. coli common pilus (ECP), is encoded by the ecpA gene, which is present 96% of E. coli strains tested, as determined by PCR. The remaining 4% of the strains were found to be deficient in the ECP operon, as determined by multiplex PCR amplification of ecpR, ecpA, epcB and ecpC sequences. PCR were performed using GoTaq® Green Master Mix. An ecpA deletion mutant exhibited impaired adherence compared to the wildtype E. coli strain. Complementation of the mutant strain with the plasmid pMR13, the pGEM®-T Vector containing the ecpA gene, restored the strain's ability to adhere to epithelial cells. (3719)

J. Biol. Chem. 282, 29847–29854. Differential regulation of vitamin D receptor (VDR) by the p53 family: p73-dependent induction of VDR upon DNA damage. 2007

Kommagani, R., Payal, V. and Kadakia, M.P.

Notes: The authors examined transcriptional regulation of the vitamin D receptor (VDR) by p53 and p63, a member of the p53 family, under stressed and unstressed conditions. Reporter constructs with the full-length and minimal VDR promoters controlling expression of firefly luciferase were cotransfected with p53 or p63 expression constructs, and transcriptional activation of the VDR promoter was monitored using the Dual-Luciferase® Reporter 100 Assay System. Results were normalized to Renilla luciferase activity. Interaction between p73, another member of the p53 family, and the VDR promoter was examined using chromatin immunoprecipitation. The imunnopreciptated chromatin was reverse crosslinked, DNA was eluted and VDR and p21 sequences were detected by PCR using GoTaq® Green Master Mix. (3715)

J. Biol. Chem. 281, 30001–30014. Identification of a domain in the V0 subunit d that is critical for coupling of the yeast vacuolar proton-translocating ATPase. 2006

Owegi, M.A., Pappas, D.L., Finch, M.W. Jr., Bilbo, S.A., Resendiz, C.A., Jacquemin, L.J., Warrier, A., Trombley, J.D., McCulloch, K.M., Margalef, K.L., Mertz, M.J., Storms, J.M., Damin, C.A. and Parra, K.J.

Notes: The authors generated truncations of subunit d of a vacuolar proton-translocating ATPase pump to examine the protein's function. The N- and C-termini were required for subunit stability as well as pump function and assembly. Function was restored to the C-terminal deletions of subunit d by creating a chimeric protein with the C-terminus of a subunit d homolog from Thermus thermophilus. Three tandem repeats of a hemagglutinin (HA3) epitope were amplified and inserted at the N-terminus so that the chimeric protein could be visualized by Western blot with an anti-HA antibody. Initial amplification of the HA3 epitope and amplifications to confirm the orientation of the epitope were performed using GoTaq®Green Master Mix. (3720)
