The present study focuses on the genetic and biochemical characterization of mycothiol S-conjugate amidase (Mca) of Corynebacterium glutamicum. Recombinant C. glutamicum Mca was heterologously expressed in Escherichia coli and purified to apparent homogeneity. The molecular weight of native Mca protein determined by gel filtration chromatography was 35 kDa,(More)
Over-expression of the gene, mshA, coding for mycothiol glycosyl transferase improved the robustness of Corynebacterium glutamicum to various stresses. Intracellular mycothiol (MSH) content was increased by 114 % in WT(pXMJ19-mshA) compared to WT(pXMJ19). Survival rates increased by 44, 39, 90, 77, 131, 87, 52, 47, 57, 85 and 33 % as compared to WT(pXMJ19)(More)
Ohr, a bacterial protein encoded by the Organic Hydroperoxide Resistance (ohr) gene, plays a critical role in resistance to organic hydroperoxides. In the present study, we show that the Cys-based thiol-dependent Ohr of Corynebacterium glutamicum decomposes organic hydroperoxides more efficiently than hydrogen peroxide. Replacement of either of the two Cys(More)
This study focuses on the possible use of Aspergillus fumigatus to remove acid violet 49 dye (AV49) from aqueous solution. In batch biosorption experiments, the highest biosorption efficiency was achieved at pH 3.0, with biosorbent dosage of 3.0 gL−1 within about 30 min at 40 °C. The Langmuir and Freundlich models were able to describe the biosorption(More)
