The glyoxalase I gene (gloA) of Escherichia coli has been cloned and used to create a null mutant. Cells overexpressing glyoxalase I exhibit enhanced tolerance of methylglyoxal (MG) and exhibit elevated rates of detoxification, although the increase is not stoichiometric with the change in enzyme activity. Potassium efflux via KefB is also enhanced in the(More)
A new subunit, YabF, for the KefC K(+) efflux system in Escherichia coli has been identified. The subunit is required for maximum activity of KefC. Deletion of yabF reduces KefC activity 10-fold, and supply of YabF in trans restores activity. IS2 and IS10R insertions in yabF can be isolated as suppressors of KefC activity consequent upon the V427A and D264A(More)
The KefB and KefC systems of Escherichia coli cells are activated by iodoacetate (IOA) and chlorodinitrobenzene (CDNB), leading to a rapid drop in the intracellular pH. However, survival of exposure to IOA or CDNB was found to be essentially independent of KefB and KefC activation. No correlation was found between the toxicity of the compound and its(More)
KefB and KefC are glutathione-gated K+ efflux systems in Escherichia coli, and the proteins exhibit strong similarity at the level of both primary sequence and domain organization. The proteins are maintained closed by glutathione and are activated by binding of adducts formed between glutathione and electrophiles. By construction of equivalent mutations in(More)
Es wird zunächst über Permeabilitätsmessungen an einer Permalloy-Stufenschicht als Funktion des Magnetisierungszustandes im Frequenzbereich von 1 bis 300 MHz berichtet. Darauf aufbauend wird ein nicht zerstörendes Leseverfahren mit Koinzidenzaufruf erläutert, bei dem die Permeabilität der aufgerufenen Schicht zur Anzeige der gespeicherten Information dient.(More)
