Based on the previously determined amino-acid sequence of lactate dehydrogenase from B. stearothermophilus, an oligonucleotide probe was synthesized and used to clone the structural genes for lactate dehydrogenase from B. stearothermophilus, B. caldolyticus and B. caldotenax. The nucleotide sequences of the entire LDH genes from these three thermophilic(More)
An extensive comparative structural analysis of lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) sequences from thermophilic, mesophilic and psychrophilic bacilli revealed characteristic primary structural differences. These specific amino-acid substitutions were found in the entire LDH molecule. However, in certain regions of the LDH an accumulation of these exchanges could be(More)
Ferredoxin was isolated from the aerobic, thermophilic and acidophilic bacterium Bacillus acidocaldarius and its sequence of 78 amino acids completely determined by automated Edman degradation of the protein and of peptides derived from chemical cleavage between aspartic acid and proline and from enzymatic digestions. The optical spectrum of the oxidized(More)
In this report, we present a novel method for delivering lipophilic compounds to cell cultures. The delivery system is based on a nanoemulsion stabilized by phospholipids. These nanoemulsions are well tolerated by cell cultures, such as TK6 lymphoblastoid cells and can be used to deliver defined amounts of encapsulated lipophilic compounds into cells. We(More)
The cosmetic industry requires more and more expensive actives and ingredients such as retinol, coenzyme Q10, proteins, peptides and biotechnologically produced molecules. In this study, we demonstrate the development of a cost effective formulation of a nanostructured lipid carrier (NLC) or solid lipid nanoparticles (SLN) improving peptide delivery into(More)
The amino-acid sequences of the lactate dehydrogenases (LDH) from B. stearothermophilus and B. caldolyticus differ at only 10 positions. The properties of these enzymes however show substantial differences. The LDH from B. stearothermophilus is activated by Fru-P2 and has a higher thermostability (10 degrees C) than the enzyme from B. caldolyticus which(More)
