Characterization of a HMT2-like enzyme for sulfide oxidation from Pseudomonas putida.
The open reading frame pp0053, which has a high homology with the sequence of mitochondrial sulfide dehydrogenase (HMT2) conferring cadmium tolerance in fission yeast, was amplified from PseudomonasExpand
Menaquinone reduction by an HMT2-like sulfide dehydrogenase from Bacillus stearothermophilus.
The gene-encoding HMT2-like sulfide dehydrogenase from Bacillus stearothermophilus JCM2501 was amplified and expressed in Escherichia coli and the enzymatic features were examined. The enzyme wasExpand
Sulfide oxidation by gene expressions of sulfide-quinone oxidoreductase and ubiquinone-8 biosynthase in Escherichia coli.
Sulfides (S2),SH-) such as hydrogen sulfide belong to a class of sulfur compounds with unpleasant odors. In order to confer sulfide-oxidizing ability on the intestine-inhabiting bacteria, theExpand
Sulfide oxidation in gram-negative bacteria by expression of the sulfide-quinone reductase gene of Rhodobacter capsulatus and by electron transport to ubiquinone.
The oxidation of sulfide was studied in recombinant bacteria expressing the sulfide-quinone reductase gene (sqr) from Rhodobacter capsulatus. Sulfide was oxidized by the Escherichia coli strain W3110Expand
Efficient removal of sulfide following integration of multiple copies of the sulfide-quinone oxidoreductase gene (sqr) into the Escherichia coli chromosome.
For the oxidation and removal of hydrogen sulfide, which causes an offensive odor from the contents of animal intestines, recombinant strains of Escherichia coli were constructed. The sulfide-quinoneExpand
Metabolic Characteristics of Beggiatoa alba in Thiosulfate Medium and Porcine Colon Contents
The strain Beggiatoa alba DSM-1416 is a filamentous, gliding, colorless, sulfur bacterium. In order to get the basic information on deodorizing stinking odor in animal feeding, metabolizingExpand
Sulfide oxidation in gram-negative bacteria by expression of the sulfide-quinone reductase gene of Rhodobacter capsulatus and by electron transport to ubiquinone.
The oxidation of sulfide was studied in recombinant bacteria expressing the sulfide-quinone reductase gene (sqr) from Rhodobacter capsulatus. Sulfide was oxidized by the Escherichia coli strain W3110Expand
