In an effort to better understand the structure and function of the metallo-beta-lactamase from Bacteroides fragilis, spectroscopic and metal-binding studies were performed on the native, metal-substituted, and mutant forms of the enzyme. Atomic absorption studies demonstrate that the native B. fragilis enzyme tightly binds 2 mol of Zn(II) and, along with(More)
Potassium is a cation important for a properly functioning body. It is especially significant for nerves, kidneys, and muscles. The concentration of potassium ions in muscle tissue was determined using an atomic absorption spectrometer operating in emission mode. The meat samples were flash frozen using liquid nitrogen, further ground using a mortar and(More)
