Homotetrameric β-xylosidase from Selenomonas ruminantium (SXA) is one of the most efficient enzymes known for the hydrolysis of cell wall hemicellulose. SXA shows a rapid rate of activity loss at temperatures above 50°C. In this study, we have introduced two inter-subunit disulfide bridges with one point mutation. Lys237 was chosen to be replaced with(More)
Transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) superfamily regulates matrix metalloproteinases (MMP), which intrinsically regulate various cell behaviors leading to metastasis. We investigated the effect of TGF-beta(2) on MMP-2 regulation in human bladder carcinoma cell line 5637. Zymography, ELISA, and real-time polymerase chain reaction revealed that(More)
β-xylosidase and several other glycoside hydrolase family members, including xylanase, cooperate together to degrade hemicelluloses, a commonly found xylan polymer of plant-cell wall. β-d-xylosidase/α-l-arabinofuranosidase from the ruminal anaerobic bacterium Selenomonas ruminantium (SXA) has potential utility in industrial processes such as production of(More)
BACKGROUND Escherichia coli phytase is an acidic histidine phytase with great specific activity. Pichia pastoris is a powerful system for the heterologous expression of active and soluble proteins which can express recombinant proteins in high cell density fermenter without loss of product yield and efficiently secrete heterologous proteins into the media.(More)
