Rhodococcus erythropolis TA421 was isolated from a termite ecosystem and is able to degrade a wide range of polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) congeners. Genetic and biochemical analyses of the PCB catabolic pathway of this organism revealed that there are four different bphC genes (bphC1, bphC2, bphC3, and bphC4) which encode 2,3-dihydroxybiphenyl(More)
DNA-affinity capture assay (DACA) coupled with liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry analysis was applied to identify the transcriptional regulators involved in the biosynthesis of actinorhodin (Act) and undecylprodigiosin (Red) in Streptomyces coelicolor. The aim of this analysis was to determine the specific transcriptional regulators binding to(More)
As a loudspeaker's physical size decreases, its ability to reproduce low frequencies is hindered. In this paper we propose a method of creating virtual bass using an efficient frequency tracking algorithm. The proposed algorithm has low computational complexity but excellent performance. The results of computer simulations and subjective tests are presented(More)
Corynebacterium glutamicum is one of the well-studied industrial strain that is used for the production of nucleotides and amino acids. Recently, it has also been studied as a possible producer of organic acids such as succinic acid, based on its ability to produce organic acids under an oxygen deprivation condition. In this study, we conducted the(More)
Members of the ROK family of proteins are mostly transcriptional regulators and kinases that generally relate to the control of primary metabolism, whereby its member glucose kinase acts as the central control protein in carbon control in Streptomyces. Here, we show that deletion of SCO6008 (rok7B7) strongly affects carbon catabolite repression (CCR),(More)
NdgR (regulator for nitrogen source-dependent growth and antibiotic production), an IclR-like regulator, has been initially identified as a binding protein to the promoters of doxorubicin biosynthetic genes in Streptomcyes peucetius by DNA affinity capture assay method. NdgR is well conserved throughout the Streptomcyes species and many other bacteria such(More)
Although phosphorylation of chloramphenicol has been shown to occur in the chloramphenicol producer, Streptomyces venezuelae, there are no reports on the existence of chloramphenicol phosphorylase in other Streptomyces species. In the present study, we report the modification of chloramphenicol by a recombinant protein, designated as Yhr2 (encoded by(More)
SCO0948 was found to be the single open reading frame annotated to encode an α-mannosidase (AM1) in Streptomyces coelicolor M145. To characterize the protein, we overexpressed SCO0948 in Escherichia coli BL21(DE3). Recombinant AM1, with a molecular weight of 110 kDa, exhibited α-mannosidase activity toward 4-nitrophenyl-α-D-mannopyranoside with a K m of(More)
To elucidate the function of an unknown regulator in Streptomyces, differences in phenotype and antibiotic production between a deletion mutant and a wild-type strain (WT) were compared. These differences are easily hidden by complex media. To determine the specific nutrient conditions that reveal such differences, we used a multiwell method containing(More)
Nucleotide diphosphate (NDP) sugars are widely present in antibiotics and glycoconjugates, such as protein- and lipid-linked oligosaccharides, where they act as substrates for glycosyltransferase in eukaryotes and prokaryotes. Among NDP sugars, NDP-4-keto sugars are key intermediates in the synthesis of structurally diverse NDP sugars with different(More)
