Bacillus subtilis has been shown to express a cytosolic oxalate decarboxylase (EC 4.1.1.2). The enzyme was induced in acidic growth media, particularly at pH 5.0, but not by oxalate. The enzyme was purified, and N-terminal sequencing identified the protein to be encoded by yvrK. The role of the first oxalate decarboxylase to be identified in a prokaryote is(More)
N(ε)-Lysine acetylation has been recognized as a ubiquitous regulatory posttranslational modification that influences a variety of important biological processes in eukaryotic cells. Recently, it has been realized that acetylation is also prevalent in bacteria. Bacteria contain hundreds of acetylated proteins, with functions affecting diverse cellular(More)
