Exploiting microbial hyperthermophilicity to produce an industrial chemical, using hydrogen and carbon dioxide
Microorganisms can be engineered to produce useful products, including chemicals and fuels from sugars derived from renewable feedstocks, such as plant biomass. An alternative method is to use lowExpand

Epimerase (Msed_0639) and Mutase (Msed_0638 and Msed_2055) Convert (S)-Methylmalonyl-Coenzyme A (CoA) to Succinyl-CoA in the Metallosphaera sedula 3-Hydroxypropionate/4-Hydroxybutyrate Cycle
ABSTRACT Crenarchaeotal genomes encode the 3-hydroxypropionate/4-hydroxybutyrate (3-HP/4-HB) cycle for carbon dioxide fixation. Of the 13 enzymes putatively comprising the cycle, several of them,Expand

Role of 4-Hydroxybutyrate-CoA Synthetase in the CO2 Fixation Cycle in Thermoacidophilic Archaea*
Background: Thermoacidophilic Sulfolobales contain a novel CO2 fixation pathway; all enzymes but one have been accounted for in Metallosphaera sedula. Results: Enzymes encoded in Msed_0394 andExpand
