In Escherichia coli, inorganic orthophosphate regulates cAMP levels by acting at two separate loci. First, adenylyl cyclase activity measured in permeabilized cells of E. coli is substantially stimulated by physiological concentrations of inorganic phosphate. This stimulation does not require the presence of cAMP phosphodiesterase activity. Second,(More)
GTP, as well as other nucleoside triphosphates, stimulates the activity of Escherichia coli adenylyl cyclase in permeable cells; the stimulatory effect is lost when the cells are disrupted by passage through a French pressure cell. These data suggested that the allosteric regulation by GTP of adenylyl cyclase activity requires an interaction of the enzyme(More)
Escherichia coli adenylyl cyclase contains no sequence that corresponds to the previously defined ATP/GTP binding consensus (A,G)XXXXGK(S,T). Using a search for lysine residues located adjacent to glycine residues, three regions that were possible candidates for part of the ATP binding site were identified. These were the residues located at positions 59,(More)
The region of Escherichia coli adenylyl cyclase spanned by glycine-55 to threonine-65 was tested for its importance for enzyme activity. Site-directed mutagenesis was used to replace glycine-55 and glycine-60 as well as lysine-59, leucine-63 and threonine-65 with other amino acids. While substitution of glycine-55 with aspartic acid produced no significant(More)
A mouse monoclonal antibody (MAb, 4B6) was able to recognize dengue virus type 4 envelope (E) protein both as a recombinant protein in Pichia pastoris and when it was present in infected brains of suckling mice. 4B6 was characterized by enzyme-linked immunoadsorbent assay (ELISA), hemaglutination inhibition, neutralization, and immunoblot. The MAb was(More)
