Ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RubisCO) from Anacystis nidulans was reconstituted in vitro from extracts of Escherichia coli strains that separately express large and small subunits. This reconstitution system was shown to be useful for monitoring the appearance of dissociated or fractionated subunit preparations. Recombinant large(More)
The recent isolation of a catalytically competent recombinant octameric core of the hexadecameric ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase from the cyanobacterium Anacystis nidulans (Synechococcus) (B. Lee and F. R. Tabita, 1990, Biochemistry 29, 9352-9357) has provided a useful system for examining the properties of this enzyme in the absence of(More)
In the cyanobacterium Anacystis nidulans (Synechococcus PCC6301), ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rbu-P2 carboxylase) is composed of eight large subunits and eight small subunits. There are three regions of the small subunit that contain amino acids that are conserved throughout evolution, from bacteria to higher plants. Since the function(More)
Significant concerns have been raised owing to the rapid global spread of infection and disease caused by the mosquito-borne Zika virus (ZIKV). Recent studies suggest that ZIKV can also be transmitted sexually, further increasing the exposure risk for this virus. Associated with this spread is a dramatic increase in cases of microcephaly and additional(More)
Four overlapping lambda genomic clones encoding rat pancreatic beta-cell/liver type glucose transporter (GLUT2) have been isolated and characterized. The gene is about 35 kb long and contains 14 exons and 13 introns. Contrary to the exon 1 of the human or mouse counterpart, the rat GLUT2 gene has three additional noncoding exons which were identified by(More)
Rhodobacter sphaeroides was found to contain two clusters of chromosomally encoded CO2 fixation structural genes. Recent studies indicate that genes within each cluster are cotranscribed, suggesting that there is a single long transcript for each cluster. All of the genes have been sequenced, homologies noted, specific mutations obtained, and interesting(More)
The 5'- and 3'-side half of liver type glucose transporter (GLUT2) cDNA was amplified from total RNA or mRNA by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). The amplified 5'-side fragment of GLUT2 cDNA was inserted into pGEM4Z and named pGLGT1, and the 3'-side fragment of GLUT2 cDNA was inserted into the HindIII site of pGLGT1 to construct(More)
