bronchiectasis in yearling feedlot cattle.thoughout all of 1974, we surveyed, for illnesses and deaths, about 407,000 yearling feedlot cattle. from the 3,943 dead cattle, 1,988 necropsies were made; of the cattle necropsied, 32 (1.6%) had bronchiectasis. in this disease, the permanently dilated small bronchi and bronchioles, located in ventral parts of the lungs, were filled with accumulations of exudate and microorganisms, including pasteurella hemolytica, pasteurella multocida, corynebacterium pyogenes, escherichia coli, salmonella an ...1976956033
control of rna synthesis by chromatin proteins.the effect of chromatin proteins on template activity has been studied. using both e. coli rna polymerase and calf thymmus polymerase b we have measured the number of initiation sites on chromatin and various histone-dna complexes. chromatin can be reconstituted with histone proteins alone and this complex is still a restricted template for rna synthesis. the removal of histone f1 causes a large increase in the template activity. chromatin is then treated with micrococcal nuclease and the dna fr ...1976787926
pathogenesis and treatment of escherichia coli infections in calves.two clearly defined types of e. coli infection are recognised and the factors predisposing and giving rise to pathogenicity are discussed. the mode of action of enterotoxins in the secretary mechanism is thought to be through stimulation of adenyl cyclase activity. treatment and prevention of the disease is considered in relation to the pathogenesis of the infection.1976792447
pathological and microbiological observations made on spontaneous cases of acute neonatal calf diarrhea.the purpose of this report is to describe clinical signs, gross and microscopic lesions, bacteriological and immunofluorescence observations made on spontaneous cases of acute neonatal calf diarrhea (ncd) in dairy and beef herds. the following diagnostic tools were used: 1) direct smears of intestinal content, 2) escherichia coli counts, 3) aerobic bacterial cultures of the small intestine and other organs (the o serogroup and the enterotoxigenicity of the e. coli isolated was determined), 4) de ...1976793692
characterization of enterotoxigenic bovine escherichia coli.among 300 isolates of bovine escherichia coli, 56 which had been found enterotoxigenic in calf gut loops were characterized on the basis of o and k antigens, colonial morphology and resistance to seven antimicrobial drugs. the 56 isolates enterotoxigenic in the calf were compared with the nonenterotoxigenic ones. of the 56 enterotoxigenic e. coli the majority possessed the a type of k antigen and had ok groups, o9:k(ps274) or o101:k(rvc118). fourteen of these isolates had the k99 antigen. none o ...1976793694
coliform contaminated bedding and new infections.ten holstein cows were bedded on fresh, uncured sawdust seeded with coliform broth culture. escherichia coli concentrations were maintained at 10(6) colony-forming units/g for the 4-wk experimental period. ten control cows were bedded with dry shavings. the elevated bacterial contamination caused an increase in contamination of teat ends; however, no new coliform infections occurred.1976795819
cloning of calf thymus satellite i dna in escherichia coli.the 1400 base pair repeat produced by digestion of calf satellite i dna (phi = 1.714 g/cm3) with ecori, was cloned in e. coli. the hybrid plasmid (pgm 214) which contains the cole1-ap vector (psf 2124) and the 1400 base pair fragment replicates stably in e. coli and can be amplified by chloramphenicol treatment. no clone was found in which more than one "repeat unit" of the satellite i dna was present in the chimaera plasmid. digestion of the original satellite i and the plasmid pgm 214 with r-s ...1976796669

leukocyte inhibiting factor (lif) production from human lymphocytes stimulated by bacterial lipopolysaccharides.leukocyte inhibiting factor (lif) release from lymphocytes cultures stimulated by bacterial lipopolysaccharides (lps) has been investigated. human lymphocytes cultured in the presence of e, coli or s. enteritidis lps were able to release in the supernatants a substance with the following properties: a) same elution pattern of bovine serum albumin (mw 69000) when filtered on sephadex g-100; b) it migrates on disc electrophoresis a an albumin; c) not dialyzable; d) not cytotoxic; e) inhibition of ...1976798596
antibodies to the triplet codons aaa, aac, and aug: reactions with nucleic acids.antibodies specific for the trinucleotide codons aaa, aug, and aac were examined for their reactions with nucleic acids. anti-aug and anti-aac precipitated denatured dna. anti-aaa did not, and moreover, the binding of a tritiated aaa derivative to anti-aaa was not inhibited by denatured dna. radioligand-binding studies showed that anti-aaa was highly specific for the triplet sequence, some cross-reactions occurring with di-a and tetra-a but little with a and poly(a). the anti-codons did not prec ...1976774989
clinical pharmacology of oxolinic acid in young dairy calves.the in vitro sensitivity to oxolinic acid shown by pathogenic gram-negative bacterial isolates from young calves with diarrhea, pneumonia, and septicemia was investigated by the bute dilution method. minimal bactericidal concentrations of the drug for 65.5% of the isolates were less than or equal to 1.56 mug/ml and for 90%, less than or equal to 6.25 mug/ml. cross resistance between oxolinic acid and chloramphenicol, streptomycin, neomycin, colistin, ampicillin, gentamicin, and oxytetracycline w ...1976776048
[residues of antimicrobial materials in the effluents of livestock farms (author's transl)].forty water samples were taken from streams of three different regions of belgium, with intensive husbandry and examined for residual microbiological activity. in some samples, activity was detected against staphylococcus aureus; none of them were active against e. coli and c. albicans. the substances in the few positive samples were not identified. with this low activity and the small proportion of positive samples (12 out of 41) any influence on the water biosphere due to the methods of farmin ...1976766304
experimental neonatal colibacillosis in cows: serological studies.serological studies of passive immunity in experimentally induced bovine colibacillosis was studied in a 41-cow university herd. pregnant dams were antigenized prepartum with two injections administered by the subcutaneous and intrammamary routes with one of four vaccine preparations (killed bacteria, live bacteria, culture supernatant, or heart infusion broth [control]). the data indicate that 77% of the neonates born to vaccinated dams were strongly protected against oral challenge with escher ...1976765285
changes in intestinal structure and function of neonatal calves infected with reovirus-like agent and eschericia coli.measurements of villus/crypt length ratio and mucosal beta-galactosidase activity were made on calves less than 3 weeks of age which had diarrhoea associated with reovirus-like agent and e. coli. in calves with diarrhoea, the villus/crypt length ratios at all sites examined along the small intestine were less than in normal calves of similar age. this was attributed to a reduction in length of vili in calves infected with the reovirus-like agent. the activity of mucosal beta-galactosidase in the ...1976189746
proposed calfhood immunization program for the commercial dairy herd.immunization programs never will usurp the central role of sound management practices and good nutrition in the disease prevention program of the commercial dairy operation. however, certain immunizations against diseases such as brucellosis, leptospirosis, and clostridial infections should be routine. other diseases such as infectious bovine rhinotracheitis, bovine virus diarrhea, parainfluenza-3, colibacillosis, and pasteurellosis should be considered if it can be determined that the herd is i ...1977190280
inhibitory action of galactose on phagocytes from normal and hypergalactosemic chicks.the inhibitory effect of galactose on phagocyte function was investigated in normal and hypergalactosemic chicks by monitoring the in vitro killing of escherichia coli by leukocytes and the in vivo clearance of colloidal 125i-labeled bovine serum albumin ([125i]bsa) from the circulation. elevated levels of galactose (30 mm) significantly impaired the bactericidal activities of leukocytes from both control and hypergalactosemic chicks. however, the latter cells were more susceptible to the galact ...1977326668

transcription of double-stranded rna by escherichia coli dna-dependent rna polymerase.double-stranded rna of some virus genomes can be used as template for the dna-dependent rna polymerase purified from escherichia coli. the rna synthesis requires all four nucleoside triphosphates and manganese ions and is dependent on the presence of sigma subunit. the reaction is inhibited by rifampicin, streptolydigin and ethidium bromide, but not by dnase and actinomycin d which does not bind to double-stranded rna. the template activity of double-stranded rna from various viruses is differen ...1977320006
occurrence of k99 antigen on escherichia coli isolated from pigs and colonization of pig ileum by k99+ enterotoxigenic e. coli from calves and pigs.several strains of enterotoxigenic escherichia coli (etec) isolated from pigs were found to have an antigen (k99) previously reported only on strains of calf and lamb origin and which facilitates intestinal colonization in the latter two species. several human etec were also tested for k99; however, none were positive. each of four k99-positive etec strains of calf origin and one of pig origin produced k99 in pig ileum in vivo, adhered to villous epithelium in pig ileum, colonized pig ileum, and ...1977321356
in vitro packaging of uv radiation-damaged dna from bacteriophage t7.when dna from bacteriophage t7 is irradiated with uv light, the efficiency with which this dna can be packaged in vitro to form viable phage particles is reduced. a comparison between irradiated dna packaged in vitro and irradiated intact phage particles shows almost identical survival as a function of uv dose when escherichia coli wild type or pola or uvra mutants are used as the host. although uvra mutants perform less host cell reactivation, the pola strains are identical with wild type in th ...1977330877
[studies of immunity in mastitis in cows].studies were carried out to establish the specific antibodies in the milk and blood sera of cows recovered from a spontaneous infection of the udder caused by streptococci, staphylocci, corynebacteria, and some representatives of escherichia coli as well as of cows immunized with a polybacterial vaccine. followed up was likewise the resistance of the udder in vaccinated cows to bacterial infections. it was found that in both groups of animals the specific antibodies' titer ranged from 1:80 to 1: ...1977331658
effect of tetracycline upon transfer of an r plasmid from calves to human beings.fecal specimens from human subjects in daily contact with calves shedding escherichia coli containing an r plasmid were analyzed for the presence of e coli and the plasmid. a low level of crossover was found to occur unrelated to whether or not the calves were receiving tetracycline.1977333999
[escherichia coli cell competence induced by calcium cations].escherichia coli k-12 cells grown to early and late exponential, and early and late stationary phases were treated with ca2+ and analysed for the ability of exogenous 14c-dna uptake and genetic transformation. dna-membrane complexes were detected detected by isopicnic centrifugation of cell lysates in sucrose density gradient. it is found that 1) during all the tested phases of the growth cycle, e. coli cells attain the ability of enhanced dna uptake after ca2+ treatment; 2) exogenous and host d ...1977334632
resistance of neonatal calves given colostrum diet to oral challenge with a septicemia-producing escherichia coli.twenty holstein-friesian male calves were obtained within 4 hours after bith (colostrum deprived) and allotted to 1 of 4 groups, each given a different feeding: colostrum, milk replacer, polyvinylpyrrolidone (pvp), and saline solution (0.85% nacl). each calf was fed 2 l of the respective diets every 12 hours. rectal temperatures were recorded and blood samples were collected immediately before each feeding. at approximately 27 hours of age, all calves were inoculated orally with 1.5 x 10(10) via ...1977335927
[dynamics of agglutinins following vaccination against coli-bacteriosis in calves].a bivalent vaccine, produced with strains escherichia coli 078 and 0117 to control colibacteriosis in calves, was used to vaccinate experimentally 20 cows following up the agglutinin dynamics in the serum of calves born later on. it was found that the agglutinin titers of the 0 antibodies were lower than those of ok, and varied within the range of from 1:10 to 1:320, the titers of 1:20-1:40 values being prevalent. highest level of titers was observed by the third day following birth. ok antibodi ...1977337649
mammary blood flow during experimental escherichia coli endotoxin induced mastitis in goats and cows.the effect of intramammary infusion of escherichia coli endotoxin upon mammary blood flow was studied in lactating goats and cows. blood flow was recorded by means of an electromagnetic flow probe chronically implanted around one mammary artery. endotoxin mastatis was always accompanied by a significant increase in mammary blood flow, characterized by 2 conspicuous peaks. the flow returned to control values by the thirteenth hour after infusion. other symptoms of acute mastitis were: fever, incr ...1977338650
studies on the immunity of the calf to colibacillosis--vii: the experimental reproduction of enteric colibacillosis in colostrum-fed calves.eight newborn calves were challenged orally with a known enteropathogenic strain of escherichia coli 0101 k?(a) and two to six hours later each calf was fed a minimum of three pints colostrum. all calves suffered from acute diarrhoea of varying severity within 24 to 48 hours of infection. immunofluorescent and histological examination of the small intestine demonstrated adherence of the challenge organism to the epithelium and the presence of pathological lesions similar to those seen in colostr ...1977339479
the transfer of bacterial biotin genes to escherichia coli k-12 cells by transfection with lambda bio phage dna.the transfection of biotin genes to biotin negative escherichia coli k-12 cells with donor dna isolated from transducing lambda bio phages was examined. the transfection of the cells was performed in the presence of bovine serum albumin and sucrose (osowiecki and skaliƄska, 1974).197770968

methodology for recognition of invasive potential of escherichia coli.surveillance for dysentery-related invasive potential in bacteria using the sereny keratoconjunctivitis test is restricted by expense, time factor, and necessity for confirmation. primary screening of isolates in a standardized mammalian cell culture system is recommended. bacteria are grown 20 hr in veal infusion, washed, and resuspended in 20% heat-inactivated fetal bovine serum (fbs) supplemented with 0.12% brain heart infusion and 0.1% bile salts. the hela culture is grown 20 hr as a monolay ...1977323215
secondary-structure predictions of calcium-binding proteins.the known tertiary structure of carp muscle parvalbumin is consistent with an "ef-hand" architecture (helix-loop-helix) for each calcium-ion binding site. primary-sequence alignments have indicated four ef hands in rabbit skeletal muscle troponin c and in rabbit myosin alkali light chains. five secondary-structure prediction methods, based on amino acid sequence only, have been fully computerized and used to calculate joint prediction histograms for several calcium-binding proteins. the joint hi ...1977836806
[methionyl-trna synthetase from wheat embryo: dissociation into subunits (author's transl)].wheat -embryo methionyl-trna synthetase is a dimeric protein of beta2 structure. when highly diluted, it loses the capacity to catalyze atp-[32p]ppi exchange and to aminoacylate trnamet: at low enzymatic concentrations the rates of formation of[32p]atp and [14c]methionyl-trnamet are lower than those predicatedby extrapolating the rates determined at higher enzyme concentrations. the difference between observed and expected rates becomes greater with decreasing enzyme concentration. filtration of ...1977849749
tissue distribution and residues of beta-lactam antibiotics in normal dairy cows.tissue residues and concentrations of benzylpenicillin, cloxacillin, ampicillin, amoxycillin, cephapirin, and cephacetrile were determined in normal dairy cows after parenteral administration of several forms of these drugs. assay methods included the sarcina lutea kidney test of van schothorst, the bacillus subtilis bga tests at ph 6.0 and 8.0, the escherichia coli test and a sarcina lutea test performed at ph 8.0 of the agar, and specific quantitative assay methods. the e. coli test method dem ...1977918925
thermal denaturation and template activities of reconstituted dna-histone complexes.reconstituted complexes of dna with histone were prepared by salt-and-urea step gradient dialysis. the dna was complexed with histone h1, with the combination of the other four histones h2a, h2b, h3 and h4, and with whole histones. these dna-histone complexes were purified by bio-gel column chromatography, and the weight ratio of histone-to-dna was determined in each complex. the thermal denaturation profile and nuclease digestion pattern of dna-histone h2a, h2b, h3 and h4 complex were compatibl ...1977146400
biochemical characteristics of enterotoxigenic and nonenterotoxigenic escherichia coli isolated from calves with diarrhea.eighteen isolates of enterotoxigenic escherichia coli (etec) and 15 isolates of nonenterotoxigenic e coli (netec) obtained from calves with diarrheal disease were characterized biochemically. of 64 biochemical tests employed, none allowed making differentiation of etec from netec. eleven tests were used to separate etec isolates into 1 of 5 biotypes, although the ability to ferment dulcitol, salicin, sucrose, and sorbose gave sufficient information to identify the 5 biotypes of etec. the biotype ...1977339791
lutropin stimulation of rna synthesis in corpus luteum chromatin.lutropin and human choriogonadotropin stimulated the endogenous chromatin-associated polymerase activity in purified chromatin prepared from nuclei of bovine corpus luteum. chromatin was incubated in two different buffer systems: one that mainly supports the activity of polymerase i, another that supports the activity of polymerase ii and is largely alpha-amanitin sensitive. the hormones lutropin and chorigonadotropin stimulated an increase in the rate of incorporation of [14c]atp or [14c]utp in ...1977329886
blastogenic transformation by lipopolysaccharide of blood leukocytes from immunized but not normal cattle.escherichia coli lipopolysaccharide produced blastogenic transformation in whole-blood leukocytes from heifers that had been infected and immunized with campylobacter fetus, but not in cells from control animals. this suggests that lipopolysaccharide dose not function as a b-cell mitogen in cattle and that its stimulation of cells from immunized animals occurred through another mechanism.1977330414
use of polyvalent cow colostrum in the prevention of enteric infections in calves and piglets.colostrum of cows immunized with a polyvalent vaccine against enteropathogenic strains of escherichia coli gave good protection to piglets and calves against enteric coli infections. bovine immunoglobulin (igg1) and its precipitable fragments persisted in the small intestine of piglets for 6 hours after oral administration. the proteolytic breakdown of porcine colostral igg2, which occurs predominantly in the small intestine proceeded at a higher rate than that of heterologous bovine colostral i ...1978371506
elisa: enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.similar in design to radioimmunoassay, comparable in sensitivity and specificity but easier, safer, and less expensive, this new diagnostic technique uses enzyme-labeled rather than isotope-labeled reagents. the end point is a color change that can be assessed by colorimetry or with the naked eye. various techniques of elisa are described, along with examples of current and potential clinical applications.1978215505

in vitro adhesion of escherichia coli to porcine small intestinal epithelial cells: pili as adhesive factors.escherichia coli strains with pili (k99 or 987p) known to facilitate intestinal colonization adhered in vitro to porcine intestinal epithelial cells. these strains adhered equally to both ileal and jejunal epithelial cells. a laboratory e. coli strain that has type 1 pili also adhered to porcine intestinal epithelial cells. when nonpiliated cells derived from 987p+, k99+, or type 1 pilus+ strains were used for in vitro adhesion assays, they failed to adhere. the attachment of piliated bacteria t ...1978357285
biological evaluation of a methanol-soluble, heat-stable escherichia coli enterotoxin in infant mice, pigs, rabbits, and calves.escherichia coli p16 was shown to produce two heat-stable toxins (st) with differing biological activity. the toxins were separated by methanol extraction, and the first, sta, was methanol soluble, partially heat stable, active in neonatal piglets (1 to 3 days old) and infant mice, but inactive in weaned pigs (7 to 9 weeks old); the second, stb, was methanol insoluble, active in weaned pigs and rabbit ligated loops, but inactive in infant mice. it is therefore suggested that use of suckling mice ...1978357288
new surface-associated heat-labile colonization factor antigen (cfa/ii) produced by enterotoxigenic escherichia coli of serogroups o6 and o8.enterotoxigenic escherichia coli (etec) belonging to serogroups o6 and o8 do not possess the h-10407-type colonization factor antigen (cfa/i). however, these frequently isolated etec were found to possess a second and distinct heat-labile surface-associated colonization factor antigen, termed cfa/ii. whereas cfa/i mediates mannose-resistant hemagglutination of human group a erythrocytes, cfa/ii does not. cfa/ii mediates mannose-resistant hemagglutination of bovine erythrocytes, and mannose-resis ...197880383
hygiene in the prevention of udder infections. iv. evaluation of teat dips with excised cows' teats.suspensions of staphylococcus aureus, streptococcus agalactiae, escherichia coli, and pseudomonas aeruginosa were used to contaminate teats excised from cows. commercially available teat dips were applied for evaluation of comparative germicidal activity. iodophors, sodium hypochlorite, and sodium dichloro-s-triazenetrione were highly effective against all four test organisms. quarternary ammonium, chlorhexidine, and cetylpyridinium chloride were effective against staphylococcus aureus, and stre ...1978100535
[microbiological studies on bacterial spectra of milk samples from healthy udder quarters and from those with increased cell counts and/or conductivity values].the germ levels of 2,182 milk samples obtained from udder quarters with subclinical mastitis were compared to milk sampled from 2,061 udder quarters with physiological cell counts or conductivity values. three cattle herds were involved in the test programme. no germ growth was established from 9.5 per cent of all samples taken from udder quarters with increased cell counts and conductivities and from 4.1 per cent of those samples taken from intact udder quarters. samples taken from udder quarte ...1978104694
incidence and relationship of group d streptococci with other indicator organisms in meats.raw and processed meats were analyzed for presumptive group d streptococci using kf streptococcus agar. counts were compared with coliform, presumptive escherichia coli, and enterobacteriaceae counts but no meaningful relationships were observed. results indicated that group d streptococci and e. coli type i were principally contaminants from the packing plant, rather than at retail level. the predominating group d streptococcus in both beef and pork cuts was streptococcus faecalis, while in pro ...1978106944

binding of phosphorylated histone h1 to dna.a chromatin associated protein kinase was used to add 3 moles of phosphate to seryl side chains of 1 mole of histone h1. the dna binding properties of this in vitro phosphorylated h1 were compared with those of unmodified h1. considerably more radioactive superhelical dna was retained on nitrocellulose filters at 20mm-40mm nacl by phosphorylated h1 than by unmodified h1. however, zone velocity sedimentation analysis of histone-dna complexes indicated that similar amounts of phosphorylated and un ...1978209406
glycoproteins of natural origin with an affinity for hepatitis b surface antigen.sera from certain animal species contain a substance(s) which binds hepatitis b surface antigen. the hepatitis b binding substance found in animals is not antibody, but appears to be a glycoprotein which reacted with antigen-coated beads and produced a "false positive" test for antibody. this glycoprotein could be selectively and quantitatively removed by reaction with purified hepatitis b surface antigen and centrifugation. pili fractions isolated from neisseria gonorrhoeae and escherichia coli ...1978213390
localization of the site of adenylylation of glutamine synthetase by electron microscopy of an enzyme-antibody complex.antibodies to the nucleosidel,n(6)-ethenoadenosine have been used to localize the site of adenylylation of the glutamine synthetase [l-glutamate:ammonia ligase (adp-forming), ec] of escherichia coli. antibodies were induced in rabbits by injection of a bovine albumin-ethenoadenosine conjugate. the resulting antisera strongly bound ethenoadenosine, its 5'-nucleotide, or protein conjugates of the nucleoside; little or no crossreaction was seen to adenosine, amp, or the protein carrier. eth ...197832536
purification of 3-phosphoglycerate kinase from diverse sources by affinity elution chromatography.1. affinity elution chromatography was used to purify phosphoglycerate kinase from a variety of sources. the choice of buffer ph for the chromatography was made according to the relative electrophoretic mobility of the enzyme from the species concerned. 2. outlines of the methods used to isolate the enzyme from over 20 sources are presented. the enzyme was purified from the muscle tissue of a variety of mammals, fish and birds, from liver of several animals, from yeast, escherichia coli, and pla ...1978367367
the survival of serum resistant escherichia coli in the bovine mammary gland following experimental infection.serum resistant strains of escherichia coli were injected into one or two quarters of the udders of eight healthy dairy cows. animals receiving infection into two quarters showed variation in their ability to eliminate the bacteria. this variation extended from elimination from both glands to complete failure to remove the organisms from either gland. in most cases, the organisms were removed from one gland before the clinical signs of infection were observed, but persisted in the other gland fo ...1979382316
biochemical and topographical studies on escherichia coli cell surface. iv. giant spheroplast formation from a filamentous cell.long, nonseptate filamentous cells consisting of 5 to 40 single-cell unit lengths were formed from escherichia coli surface mutant ont-3 by treatment with a sublethal concentration of sodium dodecyl sylfate. as distinct from several other elongated cells (e.g., thymine-starved filaments), it was found here that stable giant spheroplasts, 5 to 10 micrometers in diameter, were produced by the action of lysozyme in the presence of bovine serum albumin via the gradual fusion of distinct spheroplasti ...1979374397
resistance of gram-negative bacteria to antibiotics in large calf agglomerations.the antibiotic resistance of e. coli, citrobacter, enterobacter-klebsiella and pseudomonas aeruginosa strains isolated from calves was tested. a high proportion of multiresistance was found even in e. coli strains isolated from newborn calves. gram-negative bacteria isolated from animals in three large calfhouses were almost 100% resistant to ampicillin, tetracyclines and sulphonamides. multiresistance was general and varied from 5 to 12 antibiotics among different strains. initial high sensitiv ...197941425
bacteriological quality of runoff water from pastureland.runoff from a cow-calf pasture in eastern nebraska was monitored for total coliforms (tc), fecal coliforms (fc), and fecal streptococci (fs) during 1976, 1977, and 1978. bacteriological counts in runoff from both grazed and ungrazed areas generally exceeded recommended water quality standards. the fc group was the best indicator group of the impact of grazing. rainfall runoff from the grazed area contained 5 to 10 times more fc than runoff from the fenced, ungrazed area. there was little differe ...1979114112
inhibition of e coli atpase activity by a troponin component, tn-i, and by mitochondrial atpase inhibitor.the enzymic activity of mg2+- or ca2+-stimulated atpase from escherichia coli was inhibited by one of the troponin components, tn-i, and by mitochondrial atpase inhibitor (f1-inhibitor). the inhibitory ability of component tn-i against mg2+-stimulated atpase activity was lost after digestion of component tn-i with trypsin. the mg2+-stimulated atpase activity inhibited by component tn-i was completely restored by the addition of another troponin component tn-c.1979160325
enzymic polyadenylation of 5s ribosomal ribonucleic acid and synthesis of a complementary deoxyribonucleic acid.the 5s ribosomal rna has been isolated, pure and intact, from rat liver (5 mg of 5s rna from 150g of liver). the 5s rna serves as a primer for calf thymus poly(a) polymerase with 20% of the efficiency of (ap)3a. bacterial 5s rna and transfer rna also serve as primers; rat liver 18s and 28s ribosomal rnas support poly(a) synthesis poorly. neither the 5s rna primer nor the appended poly(a) tract is nicked or degraded by poly(a) polymerase, and initiation of poly(a) tracts on 5s rna primers continu ...197988957
antibiotic resistance and transferable antibiotica resistance escherichia coli isolated from calves on a modern farm with therapeutic problems and unsatisfactory management conditions.on a farm with therapeutic problems and unsatisfactory management conditions, the occurrence of antibiotic resistance and transferable antibiotic resistance has been studied in e. coli isolated from calves which were 5 and 30 days old. strains with resistance to up to seven antibiotics as well as transferable resistance against up to five antibiotics were recorded. on an average, 4.2 strains with different patterns and 4.0 different strains with transferable resistance were isolated from each ca ...1979370760

studies on the substrate specificity of the dna methylase activity from escherichia coli k-12.a partially purified extract of dna methylases from e. coli k-12 containing dna-adenine as well as dna-cytosine methylase activities has been examined with respect to different dna species as substrates. the results show that the natural content of 6-map) in the applied dna represses the dna-adenine methylase activity. on the other hand, 5-mc, already present in the substrate does not influence the activity of the dna-cytosine methylase. dna from micrococcus radiodurans, which is completely free ...1979232591
transcription of nucleosomal dna in sv40 minichromosomes by eukaryotic and prokaryotic rna 40 minichromosomes can be transcribed by prokaryotic and eukaryotic rna polymerases. size analysis of transcripts indicated that dna in nucleosomes was accessible for transcription by both enzymes. sedimentation of the transcription complex showed that minichromosomes which were being transcribed had a full complement of nucleosomes. strand selection by e. coli rna polymerase was reduced by the presence of nucleosomes. no region of sv 40 dna was preferentially transcribed on minichromosomes b ...1979223131
some effects of the administration of endotoxin in mice. specific cleavage of serum albumin by an acid protease and the generation of amyloid serum component.endotoxin has been shown to induce amyloidosis in mice and to result in the appearance in serum of large amounts of amyloidrelated protein (saa). after injection of 300 mug lipopolysaccharide escherichia coli, saa behaves as an acute phase reactant with levels reaching a peak of >600 mug/ml at 18-22 h and returning to base line (<50 mug/ml) by 48 h in each of four strains tested; only the endotoxin-resistant c3h/hej strain showed a smaller response. lesser, though significant, elevations were al ...197934628
the early pathogenesis of bovine mastitis due to escherichia coli.the pathogenesis of coliform mastitis was studied after infusing each of ten lactating quarters of three dairy cows with a large dose (ca. 1 x 10(9) colony-forming units) of virulent escherichia coli strain b117. this approach was adopted first to maximize the chance of observing microscopic lesions in the tissues of a gland and secondly to overwhelm the differences that might be shown between animals in their response to the infection. the infected glands were examined at intervals of up to 4 h ...19806109290
the dna polymerase beta reaction with ultraviolet-irradiated dna incised by correndonuclease.covalently closed circular col e1 dna was ultraviolet-irradiated with a dose of 60 j/m2, thus introducing about 3.2 pyrimidine dimers per dna molecule. treatment of irradiated col e1 dna with micrococcus luteus correndonuclease resulted, in the vicinity of pyrimidine dimers, in an average of 3.3 incisions per dna molecule, and converted dna to the open circular form. incised col e1 dna stimulated no reaction with calf thymus dna polymerase alpha but was recognized as a template by dna polymerase ...19806250619
rotavirus infections in calves in dairy herds.neonatal calf diarrhoea was studied in 115 calves of one dairy herd from january 1976 to june 1977. two syndromes could be distinguished: a mild and short lasting 'early diarrhoea' within the first three days of life and a usually more severe 'late diarrhoea' from the fourth to the 14th day of life. the latter type of diarrhoea occurred almost exclusively during the first half of the year. thirty-four out of 45 calves with late diarrhoea excreted rotaviruses, whereas only one of 34 calves with e ...19806258202
new haemagglutinating fimbriae on escherichia coli strains isolated from urine.the haemagglutination patterns of 255 urinary escherichia coli isolates were examined with human (a, rh+), bovine, chicken and guinea pig erythrocytes in the presence and absence of d-mannose. the strains were divided into four groups according to their haemagglutination properties. about 40% of the isolated agglutinated human red blood cells in the presence of d-mannose. the haemagglutinin of one of these. e. coli o18a, c: k- strain no. 119 was stable, temperature sensitive, did not develop at ...19806110318
isolation and properties of calmodulin from dictyostelium discoideum.a calcium-dependent regulatory protein (calmodulin) was purified from vegetative amoebae of dictyostelium discoideum. the properties of dictyostelium calmodulin are similar but not identical to those of bovine brain calmodulin. calmodulin activity was not detected in extracts of saccharomyces cerevisiae or escherichia coli.19806243626
dissociation and reconstitution of membranes synthesizing the peptidoglycan of escherichia coli. lipid dependence of the synthetic enzymes.the peptidoglycan synthetic enzymes can be dissociated with cholate and licl into components with mobilities on a gel filtration column in the same ranges as bovine serum albumin. the active enzymes can be separated further from the lipids necessary for synthesis by precipitation with ammonium sulfate. the needed lipids stable to hydrolysis with base. a protein needed for peptidoglycan polymerization can be separated from the other synthetic enzymes by hydroxylapatite chromatography.19806244296
identification of a class of lysines within the non-specific dna-binding site of rna polymerase core enzyme from escherichia coli.the imido ester, methyl acetimidate, which specifically amidinates lysine residues, modifies rna polymerase core enzyme, leading to rapid loss of activity. calf thymus dna partially protects the enzyme against this inactivation, an effect which disappears at high salt concentration. dna protects 17 +/- 6 lysines from amidination at low salt concentration. the dependence of amidination on methyl acetimidate concentration is examined in the presence of dna at high and low salt concentration. analy ...19806804229
cloning of human papilloma virus genomic dnas and analysis of homologous polynucleotide sequences.the complete dna genomes of four distinct human papilloma viruses (human papilloma virus subtype 1a [hpv-1a], hpv-1b, hpv-2a, and hpv-4) were molecularly cloned in escherichia coli, using the certified plasmid vector pbr322. the restriction endonuclease patterns of the cloned hpv-1a and hpv-1b dnas were similar to those already published for uncloned dnas. physical maps were constructed for hpv-2a dna and hpv-4 dna, since these viral dnas had not been previously mapped. by using the cloned dnas, ...19806253665
