S-Adenosylmethionine decarboxylase from Sulfolobus solfataricus, a thermoacidophilic archaebacterium optimally growing at 87 degrees C, has been purified to homogeneity. The specific activity of the(More)
Sulfolobus solfataricus 5'-deoxy-5'-melthylthioadenosine phosphorylase II (SsMTAPII), is a hyperthermophilic hexameric protein with two intrasubunit disulfide bonds (C138-C205 and C200-C262) and a(More)
A gene encoding an extremely thermophilic and thermostable 5'-methylthioadenosine phosphorylase was cloned from the archaeon Sulfolobus solfataricus. Two degenerate oligodeoxyribonucleotide probes(More)
We report here the characterization of the first agmatine/cadaverine aminopropyl transferase (ACAPT), the enzyme responsible for polyamine biosynthesis from an archaeon. The gene PF0127 encoding(More)
5'-Methylthioadenosine phosphorylase (MTAP) was purified to homogeneity from the hyperthermophilic archaeon Pyrococcus furiosus. The protein is a homoexamer of 180 kDa. The enzyme is highly(More)
