We describe a method for the detection and quantification of D-aspartate N-methyltransferase activity. The enzyme catalyzes the S-adenosyl-L-methionine-dependent N-methylation of D-aspartate to form(More)
D-aspartate is present at high concentrations in the tissues of Scapharca broughtonii, and its production depends on aspartate racemase. This enzyme is the first aspartate racemase purified from(More)
Tris(1,3-dichloro-2-propyl) phosphate (TDCPP), a flame retardant, is regarded as a potentially toxic and persistent environmental contaminant. We previously isolated a TDCPP-degrading bacterium,(More)
