A thermophilic, chemolithoautotrophic hydrogen-oxidizing bacterium, Hydrogenobacter thermophilus TK-6, fixes carbon dioxide via the reductive TCA cycle. 2-Oxoglutarate:ferredoxin oxidoreductase (OGOR) of this strain is one of the key enzymes of the pathway. OGOR of strain TK-6 has been reported to be a two-subunit-type OGOR and encoded by korAB. A gene(More)
An investigation of a virulent Bacillus phage-K2 (named Bp-K2) isolated from chungkookjang (a fermented soybean foodstuff) was made. Bp-K2 differed in infectivity against a number of Bacillus subtilis strains including starter strains of chungkookjang and natto, being more infectious to Bacillus strains isolated from the chungkookjang, but much less active(More)
The alcohol dehydrogenase gene (ADH1) of Candida utilis ATCC9950 was cloned and expressed in recombinant Escherichia coli. C. utilis ADH1 was obtained by PCR amplification of C. utilis genomic DNA using two degenerate primers. Amino acid sequence analysis of C. utilis ADH1 indicated that it contained a zinc-binding consensus region and a NAD(P)+-binding(More)
Cyclin-dependent kinase 5 (Cdk5) is a proline-directed serine/threonine kinase and its dysregulation is implicated in neurodegenerative diseases. Likewise, C-terminus of Hsc70-interacting protein (CHIP) is linked to neurological disorders, serving as an E3 ubiquitin ligase for targeting damaged or toxic proteins for proteasomal degradation. Here, we(More)
Deinococcus grandis possesses two types of superoxide dismutase (SOD, E. C. 1.15.1.1.) that show distinct electrophoretic behavior, one that migrates slowly and the other that migrates rapidly (SOD-1 and SOD-2, respectively). In this study, SOD-1 was uniformly and abundantly detected, regardless of growth phase, whereas SOD-2 was not detected during early(More)
