We have constructed a collection of single-gene deletion mutants for all dispensable genes of the soil bacterium Acinetobacter baylyi ADP1. A total of 2594 deletion mutants were obtained, whereas 499 (16%) were not, and are therefore candidate essential genes for life on minimal medium. This essentiality data set is 88% consistent with the Escherichia coli(More)
Results of an in silico screening of a freely accessible database encompassing 50,000 commercial compounds on bacterial glucosamine-6P synthase (Glms) are described. Each product was docked with the GOLD software in a region of 20A surrounding the sugar binding site and ranked according to its score. Among the 14 best-scored molecules, three molecules(More)
The enzyme glucosamine-6P Synthase (Gfat, L-glutamine:D-fructose-6P amidotransferase) is involved in the hexosamine biosynthetic pathway and catalyzes the formation of glucosamine-6P from the substrates d-fructose-6-phosphate and l-glutamine. In eukaryotic cells, Gfat is inhibited by UDPGlcNAc, the end product of the biochemical pathway. In this work we(More)
Human L-glutamine: D-fructose-6-phosphate amidotransferase (Gfat1), a recognized target in type 2 diabetes complications, was expressed in Sf9 insect cells with an internal His(6)-tag and purified to homogenity. Two different microplate assays that quantify, respectively D-glucosamine-6-phosphate and L-glutamate were used to analyze the enzyme kinetic(More)
