The critical collapse pressure of gas vesicles isolated from Anabaena flos-aquae decreased from 0.557 to 0.190 MPa when GvpC, the hydrophilic 22 kDa protein present on the outer surface of the gas vesicle, was removed by rising in 6 M urea. Recombinant GvpC was purified from inclusion bodies, produced in an E. coli strain containing an expression vector(More)
About 1500 hybrid broad-host-range plasmids from a genomic library ofPseudomonas saccharophila were individually transferred by conjugation fromEscherichia coli toAlcaligenes eutrophus. Direct selection for pentose-utilizing transconjugants yielded three clones capable of growth on xylose. Growth ofP. saccharophila as well as the transconjugants ofA.(More)
Previous studies have shown that gas vesicles isolated from the cyanobacterium Anabaena flos-aquae contain two types of protein, GvpA, a small hydrophobic protein that forms the main ribbed structure, and GvpC, a protein comprising five repeats of a 33-amino-acid-residue motif, which is located on the outer surface of the GvpA shell. GvpC was shown to(More)
