The genomes of mycobacteriophages of the L5 family, which includes the lytic phage D29, contain several genes putatively linked to nucleotide-metabolizing functions. Two such genes, 48 and 50, encoding thymidylate synthase and ribonucleotide reductase (RNR), respectively, were overexpressed in Escherichia coli and the recombinant proteins were biochemically(More)
Pradimicins are a new class of antifungal compounds currently undergoing preclinical and early phase I clinical trials. The pradimicin structure is characterized by an aglycone of dihydrobenzo (alpha) naphthacenequinone with substitutions by a D-amino acid and hexose sugar. Pradimicins prossess a novel mechanism of action consisting of a specific binding(More)
The genomes of mycobacteriophages of the L5 family, which includes the lytic phage D29, contain several genes putatively linked to DNA synthesis. One such gene is 65, which encodes a protein belonging to the RecA/DnaB helicase superfamily. In this study a recombinant version of the mycobacteriophage D29 gp65 was functionally characterized. The results(More)
