In a previous study, we showed that 1,3-propanediol (1,3-PD) was still produced from glycerol by the Klebsiella pneumoniae mutant strain defective in 1,3-PD oxidoreductase (DhaT), although the production level was lower compared to the parent strain. As a potential candidate for another putative 1,3-PD oxidoreductase, we identified and characterized a(More)
L-amino acid deaminases catalyze the deamination of natural L-amino acids. Two types of L-amino acid deaminase have been identified in Proteus species. One exhibits high levels of activity toward a wide range of aliphatic and aromatic L-amino acids, typically L-phenylalanine, whereas the other acts on a relatively narrow range of basic L-amino acids,(More)
The major capsid protein L1 of human papillomavirus (HPV) is essential in construction of recombinant antigen vaccines against cervical cancer. HPV type 33 accounts for about 10% of all HPV infections in Asia. The gene encoding the major capsid protein L1 of the high-risk HPV type 33 was isolated from a Korean patient and expressed in Sf-9 insect cells(More)
Although the de novo biosynthetic mechanism of 3-hydroxypropionic acid (3-HP) in glycerol-fermenting microorganisms is still unclear, the propanediol utilization protein (PduP) of Lactobacillus species has been suggested to be a key enzyme in this regard. To verify this hypothesis, a pduP gene from Lactobacillus reuteri was cloned and expressed, and the(More)
The microbial production of 1,3-propanediol (1,3-PD) by Klebsiella pneumoniae involves the formation of various by-products, which are synthesized through the oxidative pathway. To eliminate the by-products synthesis, the oxidative branch of glycerol metabolism was inactivated by constructing two mutant strains. In one of the mutant strains, the structural(More)
