The unusual thermolability of glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase from the facultative thermophile Bacillus coagulans KU (Crabb et al., Biochemistry 16:4840-4847, 1977) has provided the first opportunity to study a homologous enzyme from the same genus that exhibits a marked difference in thermostability. In pursuit of the structural bases for the(More)
Malnutrition is worldwide. Irreversible effects on the pancreas and pancreatic function when studied clinically have been contradictory. This laboratory experiment was designed to study the pancreas under conditions of severe malnutrition over a long period of time. Its purpose was to determine whether organic as well as functional changes are reversible in(More)
The thermolabile glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase from the facultative thermophile Bacillus coagulans has a crystallographically exact 2-fold rotation axis of symmetry in one of its orthorhombic crystal forms (Lee et al., 1982). Using various crystallographic techniques, we have now identified this axis to be the molecular R-axis, which is the(More)
Among the various proposals that have been made in attempting to explain the ability of thermophiles to reproduce at high temperatures, there is no doubt that obligate and extreme thermophiles synthesize proteins (and other molecules) that have sufficient intrinsic molecular stability to withstand increased thermal stress. In contrast, the(More)
