The nitrite reductase gene (nirA) from the filamentous, heterocyst-forming cyanobacterium Anabaena sp. PCC 7120 (A. PCC 7120) was expressed in Escherichia coli using the pET-system. Co-expression of the cysG gene encoding siroheme synthase of Salmonella typhimurium increased the amount of soluble, active nitrite reductase four fold. Nitrite reductase was(More)
The filamentous cyanobacterium Anabaena variabilis (ATCC 29413) possesses two molybdenum dependent nitrogenase systems, nif1 and nif2. The nif1 system is regulated by a developmental program involving heterocyst differentiation; the nif2 system is expressed in all cells only under anaerobic conditions and the expression is controlled environmentally. The(More)
The gene for titin, a 4MDa myofibrillar protein, was analysed in golden hamster DNAs from different sources, using human cDNA probes and PCR. In the DNA from the BHK-21-Bi subline of baby hamster kidney cells, extended sequences coding for Z-line associated domains were missing, indicating a deletion that renders titin non-functional. These sequences were(More)
Ferredoxins are small iron sulfur proteins necessary for electron donation. FdxH1 and FdxH2 are associated with two different nif gene clusters where they transfer electrons for the reduction of nitrogenase complex. FdxH1 was observed to be stable towards oxygen, whereas, FdxH2 was relatively unstable. We had identified the amino acid involved in oxygen(More)
