The crystal structure of the microbial transglutaminase (MTGase) zymogen from Streptomyces mobaraense has been determined at 1.9-Å resolution using the molecular replacement method based on the crystal structure of the mature MTGase. The overall structure of this zymogen is similar to that of the mature form, consisting of a single disk-like domain with a(More)
This paper reports that a new photobleaching compound, 2-(2-chloro-5-propoxycarbonylphenyl)aminomethylidene-5-5-dim ethyl- cyclohexane-1,3-dione (RWH-21), stimulates accumulation of 13(2)-hydroxychlorophyll a in cultured tobacco cells. This was shown based on isolation of 13(2)-hydroxychlorophyll a from pigment extracts of cultured tobacco cells by(More)
A series of 5-substituted pyrimidine derivatives was synthesized, and their ability to inhibit brassinosteroid biosynthesis was tested. The biological activity of these compounds was evaluated by the cress stem elongation method. Among the synthesized compounds, alpha-(4-chlorophenyl)-alpha-phenyl-5-pyrimidinemethanol (DPPM 4) exhibited potent inhibitory(More)
