Gourdie T, Prakash A, Wakelin L, Woodgate P, Denny W. Synthesis and evaluation of DNA-targeted spatially separated bis(aniline mustards) as potential alkylating agents with enhanced DNA cross-linking capability. J Med Chem. 1991;34:240-8 pubmed
..It is concluded that more information is required about the exact orientation of the initial monoadducts before ligands with specific DNA cross-linking ability can be designed. ..
Saul D, Spiers A, McAnulty J, Gibbs M, Bergquist P, Hill D. Nucleotide sequence and replication characteristics of RepFIB, a basic replicon of IncF plasmids. J Bacteriol. 1989;171:2697-707 pubmed
..It was concluded that these repeats control the copy number of the replicon. Incompatibility tests showed that all three sets of repeats could express incompatibility with a resident RepFIB plasmid. ..
Saul D, Lane D, Bergquist P. A replication region of the IncHI plasmid, R27, is highly homologous with the RepFIA replicon of F. Mol Microbiol. 1988;2:219-25 pubmed
..The results are consistent with the observed incompatibility behaviour of R27, and have a bearing on the specificity of interaction of E protein with its DNA-binding sites. ..
Spiers A, Bhana N, Bergquist P. Regulatory interactions between RepA, an essential replication protein, and the DNA repeats of RepFIB from plasmid P307. J Bacteriol. 1993;175:4016-24 pubmed
Gibbs M, Spiers A, Bergquist P. RepFIB: a basic replicon of large plasmids. Plasmid. 1993;29:165-79 pubmed
..DNA sequence data were analyzed using maximum parsimony techniques to describe the possible evolutionary relationships of the 10 examples of RepFIB. ..
Christensson C, Pillidge C, Ward L, O Toole P. Nucleotide sequence and characterization of the cell envelope proteinase plasmid in Lactococcus lactis subsp. cremoris HP. J Appl Microbiol. 2001;91:334-43 pubmed
..This is the first complete sequence reported for a lactocepin plasmid, and provides the basis for better understanding, or manipulation, of lactocepin production...
