      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      TwoEscherichia coli clones expressingMycobacterium tuberculosis antigens were isolated from a gene-bank in the plasmid vector pBR 325. ‘Western blot’ analysis revealed the presence of a unique protein band of molecular weight 68,000 and 38,000, respectively in cellextracts from each clone. The 68,000 dalton antigen was found to be expressed onEscherichia coli outer surface. Plasmid DNA from a third clone could confer leucine independence on two differentleu B mutants ofEscherichia coli but not on mutants in otherleu genes, pointing to the possibility ofgenetic complementation. Thus,Mycobacterium tuberculosis DNA is capable of expression inEscherichia coli.

      Forthcoming Special issue.

    • To trigger further research on plant mitochondria, the Journal of Biosciences is bringing out a special issue titled "Plant Mitochondria: Properties and Interactions with Other Organelles".

      Plant mitochondria are quite distinct and have unique features, such as a cyanide-insensitive alternate pathway. They also interact with chloroplasts to optimize photosynthetic carbon assimilation.

      Submissions are welcome until 30 July 2023. The contributions can be original articles, short communications, reviews, or mini-reviews on any topic related to plant mitochondria.

      Authors can submit their articles online at https://www.editorialmanager.com/jbsc/default2.aspx
