Characterisation of infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) polyprotein processing.
Infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) is a birnavirus that infects the B-cells in the bursa of Fabricius of young chickens, causing Gumboro disease. The IBDV 114 kDa polyprotein (NH2-pVP2-VP4-VP3-COOH) is thought to be ...
Cloning, expression and purification of the immunity factor associated with leucocin A production.
Leucocin A is a bacteriocin produced by Leucoconostoc gelidium UAL 187-22. Bacteriocin producer strains possess an immunity protein, which enables the strain to protect itself against its own bacteriocin. The immunity ...
Characterization of the autolytic systems in selected streptococcal species.
Autolysins are endogenous enzymes responsible for the cleavage of specific bonds in the bacterial sacculus resulting in damage to the integrity and protective properties of the cell wall. The true biological functions of ...

Cloning, expression and purification of the subunits of the Mannose PTS Permease of Listeria monocytogenes EGD.
The disease listeriosis is caused by Listeria monocytogenes. This common food-borne disease has been responsible for about 0.1 to 10 cases per million inhabitants per year. However, this disease is serious with its high ...
Dynamics of the glutathione/glutaredoxin system.
The glutathione/glutaredoxin system is made up of glutaredoxins, glutathione (GSH) and glutathione reductase (GLR). Glutaredoxins, which are involved in essential cellular functions such as DNA synthesis, iron metabolism ...
The dynamics of thioredoxin-dependent reactions.
The thioredoxin system, comprising thioredoxin (Trx), thioredoxin reductase (TrxR) and NADPH, is present in most organisms from prokaryotes to eukaryotes. The system plays a central role in the redox regulation of several ...
Cloning and recombinant expression of a 822 bp region of a Pf403 Plasmodium falciparum gene.
Malaria is a devastating parasitic disease in humans caused by species in the genus Plasmodium. With over 100 million cases and at least 1.5 million fatalities each year, the disease accounts for 4-5% of all fatalities ...
