Crystal structure of the beta-subunit of acyl-CoA carboxylase: structure-based engineering of substrate specificity.
TLDR
These findings enable bioengineering of the acyl-CoA carboxylase (ACCase) substrate specificity to provide novel extender units for the combinatorial biosynthesis of polyketides.
Crystal structures and mutational analyses of acyl-CoA carboxylase beta subunit of Streptomyces coelicolor.
The first committed step of fatty acid and polyketides biosynthesis, the biotin-dependent carboxylation of an acyl-CoA, is catalyzed by acyl-CoA carboxylases (ACCases) such as acetyl-CoA carboxylase
Calcium regulation of calmodulin binding to and dissociation from the myo1c regulatory domain.
TLDR
The data suggest that the calmodulin bound to the IQ motif adjacent to the motor domain is rapidly exchangeable in the presence of calcium and is responsible for regulation of myo1c ATPase and motile activity.
Bactericidal Activity of Glycinecin A, a Bacteriocin Derived from Xanthomonas campestris pv. glycines, on Phytopathogenic Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatoria Cells
TLDR
The results suggest that the bactericidal mechanism of action of glycinecin A is correlated with the permeability of membranes to hydroxyl and potassium ions, leading to the lethal activity of the bacteriocin on the target bacteria.
