Toxin-antitoxin (TA) systems play important roles in bacterial physiology, such as multidrug tolerance, biofilm formation, and arrest of cellular growth under stress conditions. To develop novel antimicrobial agents against tuberculosis, we focused on VapBC systems, which encompass more than half of TA systems in Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Here, we report(More)
For bacteria, cysteine thiol groups in proteins are commonly used as thiol-based switches for redox sensing to activate specific detoxification pathways and restore the redox balance. Among the known thiol-based regulatory systems, the MarR/DUF24 family regulators have been reported to sense and respond to reactive electrophilic species, including diamide,(More)
Cell adhesion molecules play a crucial role in fundamental biological processes via regulating cell-cell interactions. Nerve injury induced protein1 (Ninjurin1) is a novel adhesion protein that has no significant homology with other known cell adhesion molecules. Here we present the assignment of an 81 aa construct for human Ninjurin1 Extracellular(More)
HP0268 is a conserved, uncharacterized protein from Helicobacter pylori. Here, we determined the solution structure of HP0268 using three-dimensional nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, revealing that this protein is structurally most similar to a small MutS-related (SMR) domain that exhibits nicking endonuclease activity. We also demonstrated(More)
