Biochemical and genetic characterization of benzylsuccinate synthase from Thauera aromatica: a new glycyl radical enzyme catalysing the first step in anaerobic toluene metabolism.
Toluene is anoxically degraded to CO2 by the denitrifying bacterium Thauera aromatica. The initial reaction in this pathway is the addition of fumarate to the methyl group of toluene, yieldingExpand

PRMT6-mediated methylation of R2 in histone H3 antagonizes H3 K4 trimethylation.
The arginine methyltransferase PRMT6 (protein arginine methyltransferase 6) has been shown recently to regulate DNA repair and gene expression. As arginine methylation of histones is an importantExpand

Regulation of ferritin-mediated cytoplasmic iron storage by the ferric uptake regulator homolog (Fur) of Helicobacter pylori.
Homologs of the ferric uptake regulator Fur and the iron storage protein ferritin play a central role in maintaining iron homeostasis in bacteria. The gastric pathogen Helicobacter pylori contains anExpand

Characterization and heterologous expression of hydroxycinnamoyl/benzoyl-CoA:anthranilate N-hydroxycinnamoyl/benzoyltransferase from elicited cell cultures of carnation, Dianthus caryophyllus L.
Benzoyl-CoA:anthranilate N-benzoyltransferase catalyzes the first committed reaction of phytoalexin biosynthesis in carnation (Dianthus caryophyllus L.), and the product N-benzoylanthranilate is theExpand

High-level ribosomal frameshifting directs the synthesis of IS150 gene products.
IS150 contains two tandem, out-of-phase, overlapping genes, ins150A and ins150B, which are controlled by the same promoter. These genes encode proteins of 19 and 31 kD, respectively. A third proteinExpand

Insight into the induction mechanism of the GntR/HutC bacterial transcription regulator YvoA
YvoA is a GntR/HutC transcription regulator from Bacillus subtilis implicated in the regulation of genes from the N-acetylglucosamine-degrading pathway. Its 2.4-Å crystal structure reveals aExpand

The multifunctional 6-methylsalicylic acid synthase gene of Penicillium patulum. Its gene structure relative to that of other polyketide synthases.
6-Methylsalicylic acid synthase (MSAS) from Penicillium patulum is a homomultimer of a single, multifunctional protein subunit. The enzyme is induced, at the transcriptional level, during the end ofExpand

Genes involved in anaerobic metabolism of phenol in the bacterium Thauera aromatica.
Genes involved in the anaerobic metabolism of phenol in the denitrifying bacterium Thauera aromatica have been studied. The first two committed steps in this metabolism appear to be phosphorylationExpand

A cleavable N-terminal membrane anchor is involved in membrane binding of the Escherichia coli SRP receptor.
Different from eukaryotes, the bacterial signal recognition particle (SRP) receptor lacks a membrane-tethering SRP receptor (SR) beta subunit and is composed of only the SR alpha homologue FtsY. FtsYExpand
