Alcohol oxidase (AO) was extracted from the methylotrophic yeast Pichia putida and purified using various methods. AO purified by crystallization was homogeneous based on analytical centrifugation with subsequent gel filtration and SDS-PAGE. The molecular weight of the enzyme was around 600 kDa. SDS-PAGE revealed a single protein band (74 ± 4 kDa), and 8–9(More)
The particulate membrane-bound methane hydroxylase (pMMOH) was isolated from methane-oxidizing cells of Methylococcus capsulatus (strain M). At SDS PAGE, pMMOH displays three bands: at 47 (α), 27 (β), and 25 kDa (γ). The ESR spectrum of pMMOH incubated with hydrogen peroxide (final concentration 20 mM) at 4°C exhibited, along with the copper signal of type(More)
The role of serifs for the comprehension of printed text has been controversial in the literature. The analysis was often confounded by the fact that fonts used for comparison have many differences besides being serif or sans-serif. In this study we use fonts from the same foundry and meta family to assess the differences in reading comprehension for(More)
The hydroxylase component of membrane-bound (particulate) methane monooxygenase (pMMO) from Methylococcus capsulatus strain M was isolated and purified to homogeneity. The pMMO molecule comprises three subunits of molecular masses 47, 26, and 23 kD and contains three copper atoms and one iron atom. In solution the protein exists as a stable oligomer of 660(More)
This review considers quinone-dependent alcohol dehydrogenases and FAD-dependent alcohol oxidases, enzymes that are present in numerous methylotrophic eu- and prokaryotes and significantly differ in their primary and quaternary structure. The cofactors of the enzymes are bound to the protein polypeptide chain through ionic and hydrophobic interactions.(More)
Membrane fraction of Methylococcus capsulatus (strain M) were treated with [14C]acetylene, an affinity label binding to the active center of membrane-bound methane monooxygenase (MMO). High-purity particulate form of methane hydroxylase (pMH) was obtained by ion exchange and hydrophobic chromatography. According to SDS-PAGE data, the enzyme contained three(More)
