Organelle pH studies using targeted avidin and fluorescein-biotin.
BACKGROUND Mammalian organelles of the secretory pathway are of differing pH. The pH values form a decreasing gradient: the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is nearly neutral, the Golgi is mildly acidicExpand

Biochemical Characterization of CA IX, One of the Most Active Carbonic Anhydrase Isozymes*
Carbonic anhydrase IX (CA IX) is an exceptional member of the CA protein family; in addition to its classical role in pH regulation, it has also been proposed to participate in cell proliferation,Expand

Rhizavidin from Rhizobium etli: the first natural dimer in the avidin protein family.
Rhizobium etli CFN42 is a symbiotic nitrogen-fixing bacterium of the common bean Phaseolus vulgaris. The symbiotic plasmid p42d of R. etli comprises a gene encoding a putative (strept)avidin-likeExpand

Evidence for Natural Horizontal Transfer of the pcpB Gene in the Evolution of Polychlorophenol-Degrading Sphingomonads
ABSTRACT The chlorophenol degradation pathway in Sphingobium chlorophenolicum is initiated by the pcpB gene product, pentachlorophenol-4-monooxygenase. The distribution of the gene was studied in aExpand

Chicken avidin-related proteins show altered biotin-binding and physico-chemical properties as compared with avidin.
Chicken avidin and bacterial streptavidin are proteins familiar from their use in various (strept)avidin-biotin technological applications. Avidin binds the vitamin biotin with the highest affinityExpand

Mutation of a critical tryptophan to lysine in avidin or streptavidin may explain why sea urchin fibropellin adopts an avidin‐like domain
Sea urchin fibropellins are epidermal growth factor homologues that harbor a C‐terminal domain, similar in sequence to hen egg‐white avidin and bacterial streptavidin. The fibropellin sequence wasExpand
