- ... OBJECTIVES: To develop a recombinant strain of Bacillus thuringiensis that synthesizes two bacteriocins that enhance the antibacterial potency of the strain and that could have applied clinical and industrial value. RESULTS: We cloned the thurincin H cluster into the pHT3101 vector by assembling two genetic cassettes harboring genes for the synthesis, modification, immunity and transport of thurin ...

- ... OBJECTIVE: The objective of this work was to isolate bacteria from Red Sea invertebrates, determine their antimicrobial activity, and screen for the biosynthetic gene clusters [polyketides (PKs) and nonribosomal peptides (NRPs)] which could be involved in the production of bioactive secondary metabolites. RESULT: Eleven different samples of marine invertebrates’ were collected from Egypt’s Red Sea ...
