Expression, purification and preliminary X-ray diffraction analysis of the catalytic module of a beta-agarase from the flavobacterium Zobellia galactanivorans

Expression, purification and preliminary X-ray diffraction analysis of the catalytic module of a beta-agarase from the flavobacterium Zobellia galactanivorans

Marine bacteria secrete specific glycoside hydrolases such as agarases to access polysaccharides from algal cell walls as a carbon and energy source. In an attempt to identify agarases with variable degradation patterns, a novel family GH16 beta-agarase from the marine bacterium Zobellia galactanivorans was expressed, purified and crystallized. The purified enzyme crystallized in two distinct …

Structure and activity of Paenibacillus polymyxa xyloglucanase from glycoside hydrolase family 44

The enzymatic degradation of plant polysaccharides is rising as one of the important thing environmental objectives of the early 21st century, impacting on many processes within the textile and detergent industries in addition to biomass conversion to biofuels. One of the well-known issues with the use of nonstarch (nonfood)-based substrates such because the plant cell …

Kinetic and structural studies of aldehyde oxidoreductase from Desulfovibrio gigas reveal a dithiolene-based chemistry for enzyme activation and inhibition by H(2)O(2).

Kinetic and structural studies of aldehyde oxidoreductase from Desulfovibrio gigas reveal a dithiolene-based chemistry for enzyme activation and inhibition by H(2)O(2).

Mononuclear Mo-containing enzymes of the xanthine oxidase (XO) household catalyze the oxidative hydroxylation of aldehydes and heterocyclic compounds. The molybdenum energetic website reveals a distorted square-pyramidal geometry by which two ligands, a hydroxyl/water molecule (the catalytic labile website) and a sulfido ligand, have been proven to be important for catalysis. The XO member of the …

Bioremediation of Contaminated Lake Sediments and Evaluation of Maturity Indicies as Indicators of Compost Stability

Land contamination is one of the extensively addressed issues, which is gaining significance in lots of developed and growing nations. International efforts are actively envisaged to remediate contaminated websites as a response to adversarial well being results. Popular typical methodologies solely switch the part of the contaminant involving price intensive liabilities in addition to dealing …
