A time-dependent inhibition of the thyrotropin-releasing-hormone (TRH)-degrading ectoenzyme (EC 3.4.19.-) from rat brain by the metal-complexing agents imidazole, NaCN, EDTA and 1,10-phenanthroline could be demonstrated. In contrast, the inhibition by the non-chelating analogues 4,7- and 1,7-phenanthroline was not time-dependent. At a concentration of 100(More)
Tyrocidine is a cyclic decapeptide antibiotic which is produced and secreted by stationary-phase cells of the sporeforming bacterium Bacillus brevis. We identified the promoter for the B. brevis structural gene (tycA) for tyrocidine synthetase I, the enzyme catalyzing the first step in tyrocidine biosynthesis, and studied its regulation in cells of B.(More)
