The outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria is an asymmetric lipid bilayer consisting of an essential glycolipid lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in its outer leaflet and phospholipids in the inner leaflet. Here, we show that yciM, a gene encoding a tetratricopeptide repeat protein of unknown function, modulates LPS levels by negatively regulating the biosynthesis(More)
A new phytohormone was isolated as a metabolite of anthranilate photobiotransformation by Rhodobacter sphaeroides OU5. It was identified by MS and NMR (1H, 13C) as an indole terpenoid ester [(2E,4E,6E,8E,10E,12E,14E,16E,18E)24-hydroxy-2,6,10,14,19 pentamethyl tetrecosa-2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18 nonenyl-2(hydroxy methyl)-1H-indole-3-carboxylate] and is named as(More)
INTRODUCTION Functional and cosmetic defects in maxillofacial region are caused by various ailments like trauma, neoplasm, developmental, infections and iatrogenic causes. Reconstruction of these defects with free flaps remains the gold standard but demerits like need for surgical expertise and equipment, prolonged duration of surgery, compliance of the(More)
Culture supernatants of Rhodobacter sphaeroides OU5 grown in the presence of 2-aminobenzoate gave an orange-red color-reaction with Salper’s reagent, suggesting the presence of an indole derivative. This production was light-dependent and inducible only with 2-aminobenzoate. Replacement of 2-aminobenzoate with other 2-substituted benzoates did not result in(More)
