Determination of the N-terminal sequences of two EPTC (S-ethyl dipropylcarbamothioate)-induced proteins from thiocarbamate-degrading Rhodococcus sp. strain NI86/21 resolved by two-dimensional electrophoresis enabled the localization of the respective structural genes on two distinct DNA fragments. One of these strongly induced proteins is a NAD(+)-dependent(More)
During atrazine degradation by Rhodococcus sp. strain N186/21, N-dealkylated metabolites and an hydroxyisopropyl derivative are produced. The cytochrome P-450 system that is involved in degradation of thiocarbamate herbicides by strain N186/21 (I. Nagy, G. Schoofs, F. Compernolle, P. Proost, J. Vanderleyden, and R. De Mot, J. Bacteriol. 177:676-687, 1995)(More)
BACKGROUND The 26S proteasome is the central protease of the ubiquitin-dependent pathway of protein degradation. The proteolytic core of the complex is formed by the 20S proteasome, a cylinder-shaped particle that in archaebacteria contains two different subunits (alpha and beta) and in eukaryotes contains fourteen different subunits (seven of the(More)
20S proteasomes were purified from Streptomyces coelicolor A3(2) and shown to be built from one alpha-type subunit (PrcA) and one beta-type subunit (PrcB). The enzyme displayed chymotrypsin-like activity on synthetic substrates and was sensitive to peptide aldehyde and peptide vinyl sulfone inhibitors and to the Streptomyces metabolite lactacystin.(More)
