Isolation of mak1 from Actinoplanes missouriensis and evidence that Pep2 from Streptomyces coelicolor is a maltokinase
Sequence comparisons demonstrate that mak1‐related genes coding for homologous proteins are present in many bacterial genomes including taxonomic distantly related groups such as Rhodospirillales or green sulfur bacteria. Expand
Isolation and characterization of maltokinase (ATP:maltose 1-phosphotransferase) from Actinoplanes missouriensis
Tryptic peptides of the enzyme were sequenced, and the sequences of these peptides will allow construction of degenerate primers to identify the gene coding for this unique kinase. Expand
The Genome of φAsp2, an Actinoplanes Infecting Phage
The first genome of a virus infecting a representative of the eubacterial genus Actinoplanes is presented and the unique overall structure of the φAsp2-genome does not bear resemblance to any other known viral genome. Expand
Isolation of phages infecting Actinoplanes SN223 and characterization of two of these viruses
Two phages infecting the industrially important Actinoplanes strain SN223 were isolated from soil samples collected at the shores of inland waters in Germany and characterized in more detail are capable of provoking putative pseudolysogenic growth of the host bacterium. Expand
Acarbose acb cluster: isolation of other genes for acarbose biosynthesis and acarbose metabolism from Actinoplanes sp. SE 50/110 and their use
The invention concerns biosynthesis genes from the acarbose gene cluster from Actinoplanes sp. SE 50/110, their isolation from Actinoplanes sp. or from producers of pseudooligosaccharides, a processExpand
