Arginine and methionine transport by Aspergillus nidulans mycelium was investigated. A single uptake system is responsible for the transport of arginine, lysine and ornithine. Transport is energy-dependent and specific for these basic amino acids. The Km value for arginine is 1 X 10(-5) M, and Vmax is 2-8 nmol/mg dry wt/min; Km for lysine is 8 X 10(-6) M;(More)
Two regulatory mutants for arginine catabolism isolated as proline suppressors were tested for the synthesis of ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC), the arginine anabolic enzyme. Mutations at one locus, suD, result in the insensitivity of OTC synthesis to effectors responsible for the enzyme level in the wild strain. The common genetic regulation of both(More)
AIMS Despite proven benefits of cardiac rehabilitation (CR), currently proposed CR models are not acceptable for many heart failure (HF) patients. The purpose of this study was to evaluate a new model of home-based telemonitored cardiac rehabilitation (HTCR) using walking training compared with an outpatient-based standard cardiac rehabilitation (SCR) using(More)
Mutants lacking NADP-linked glutamate dehydrogenase (NADP-GDH) activity have been isolated by several procedures. Complementation tests in diploids as well as tetrad analysis show that they map within a short chromosome segment, the gdhA locus, which is allelic to the ure1 locus described previously. That the gdhA locus is a structural gene for NADP-GDH is(More)
The Aspergillus nidulans gene sconB, one of the four identified genes controlling sulphur metabolite repression, was cloned and analysed. It encodes a polypeptide of 678 amino acids containing seven WD repeats characteristic of the large WD40 family of eukaryotic regulatory proteins. The SCONB protein has nuclear localisation signals and is very similar to(More)
sconC, which encodes a negative regulator of sulphur metabolism in Aspergillus nidulans was cloned, sequenced, and found to belong to the highly conserved family of SKP1 genes essential for many cell functions, including cell cycle regulation. The ORF of 722 bp, encoding a protein of 161 amino acids, is interrupted by four introns. There is a fifth intron(More)
The synthesis of two enzymes of the arginine catabolic pathway, arginase and ornithine δ-transaminase (OTAse), in Aspergillus nidulans was found to be sensitive to both glucose and ammonium repression. The glucose and nitrogen starvation result in the identical derepression of OTAse synthesis and have no effects on arginase synthesis. Glucose and ammonium(More)
The objective of the study was to determine the Minimal Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) of thyme (29.4% thymol, 21.6% p-cymene) and rosemary essential oils (27.6% 1,8-cineole, 13.5% limonene, 13.0% β-pinene) against Brochothrix thermosphacta and to establish the feasibility of their use as components of modified atmosphere during beef refrigerated storage.(More)
