The homocysteine methyltransferase encoded by mmuM is widely distributed among microbial organisms. It is the key enzyme that catalyzes the last step in methionine biosynthesis and plays an important role in the metabolism process. It also enables the microbial organisms to tolerate high concentrations of selenium in the environment. In this research, 533(More)
Sodium fluoride (NaF) is a source of fluoride ions used in many applications. Previous studies found that NaF suppressed the proliferation of osteoblast MC3T3 E1 cells and induced the apoptosis of chondrocytes. However, little is known about the effects of NaF on human lung BEAS-2B cells. Therefore, we investigated the mode of cell death induced by NaF and(More)
AmpG is a transmembrane protein with permease activity that transports meuropeptide from the periplasm to the cytoplasm, which is essential for the induction of the ampC encoding β-lactamase. To obtain new insights into the relationship between AmpG structure and function, comparative genomics analysis, secondary and tertiary structure modeling,(More)
In order to get insights into plasmid evolution and the dissemination of multidrug resistance, we performed extensive comparative genomics analyses of the Klebsiella pneumoniae plasmid pKF3-94 and some of its related plasmids. pKF3-94 is one of three plasmids isolated from the K. pneumoniae strain KF3. Of the 144 putative genes it harbors, 69 can be(More)
Ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase oxygenase (RuBisCO), a key enzyme involved with photosynthetic carbon assimilation, catalyzes the carboxylation and oxidization of ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate. Interestingly, the promoter region of this gene from Arthrospira platensis could drive the expression of a downstream gene in Escherichia coli. In this study,(More)
Follistatin is a multifunctional regulatory protein involved in numerous physiological activities. To better understand its functions in Larimichthys crocea (L. crocea), the entire cDNA sequence of follistatin from L. crocea was cloned, the transcript abundance of follistatin was measured at different development stages and in different gender. A(More)
Plasmids are important antibiotic resistance determinant carriers that can disseminate various drug resistance genes among species or genera. By using a high throughput sequencing approach, two groups of plasmids of Escherichia coli (named E1 and E2, each consisting of 160 clinical E. coli strains isolated from different periods of time) were sequenced and(More)
Background—Mechanical unloading of the heart results in atrophic remodeling. In skeletal muscle, atrophy is associated with inactivation of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathway and upregulation of critical components of the ubiquitin proteosome proteolytic (UPP) pathway. The hypothesis is that mechanical unloading of the mammalian heart has(More)
