The mesoporous activated carbon (MAC) was used as a support material for in situ immobilization of acid protease (AP). The optimum temperature for the activities of both free and immobilized AP was found to be 50 degrees C. The catalytic efficiency of AP-MAC system has significantly been maintained for more than ten consecutive reaction cycles. The(More)
Bacillus subtilis BacC is an oxidoreductase involved in the biosynthesis of the potent antibiotic bacilysin. The crystal structure of BacC was determined at 1.19 Å resolution. An experimental charge density approach was used to calculate non-covalent interactions within the monomer and across the dimeric interface of BacC. This interaction network, in turn,(More)
The synthesis of the dipeptide antibiotic bacilysin involves the sequential action of multiple enzymes in the bac operon. YwfH (also referred to as BacG) catalyzes the stereoselective reduction of dihydro-hydroxyphenylpyruvate (H2HPP) to tetrahydro-hydroxyphenylpyruvate (H4HPP) in this biosynthetic pathway. YwfH is an NADPH-dependent reductase that(More)
