Despite a very complex structure, the sugar composition of the rhamnogalacturonan II (RG-II) pectic fraction is extremely conserved. Among its constituting monosaccharides is the seldom-observed eight-carbon sugar 3-deoxy-D-manno-octulosonic acid (Kdo), whose phosphorylated precursor is synthesized by Kdo-8-P synthase. As an attempt to alter specifically(More)
Only about half of non-membrane-bound proteins encoded by either bacterial or archaeal genomes are soluble when expressed in Escherichia coli (Yee et al., Proc Natl Acad Sci USA 2002;99:1825-1830; Christendat et al., Prog Biophys Mol Biol 200;73:339-345). This property limits genome-scale functional and structural proteomics studies, which depend on having(More)
