The genomic pectin methylesterase (PME)-encoding gene (pmeA) from Aspergillus niger strain RH5344 was cloned by probing a genomic DNA library with a cDNA coding for PME. The recombinant phage clone was isolated and a 6-kb HindIII fragment was subcloned and characterized. The gene consists of seven exons and six introns. The nucleotide sequences of the(More)
A 1319 bp long cDNA encoding for a polygalacturonase (EC 3.2.1.15) from Aspergillus niger RH5344 comprises a single open reading frame of 1089 bp which includes the mature protein of 362 amino acids and an NH2-terminal signal peptide of 27 amino acids. The directly determined peptides of the mature polygalacturonase confirmed the sequence information(More)
We have cloned a gene encoding a polygalacturonase (PG) in the filamentous fungus Aspergillus niger RH5344. The structural gene comprises 1141 bp coding for 362 amino acids and the open reading frame is disrupted by one intron of 52 bp. Eukaryotic consensus sequences for transcription regulation are found only in deviated forms. The biological functionality(More)
A pectin methylesterase-encoding gene (pmeA)_has been cloned and transformed intoA. niger wild-type NRRL3. Transformants produced 20-fold more PME than the host strain. For studying the effects of different promoters on thepmeA expression two novel plasmids were constructed, in which thepmeA promoter was replaced by efficient promoters such as theA.(More)
Virtual experimentation essentially includes all studies that are performed on a computer representation of a real system. Any such study needs to evaluate the response of the system to a number of different parameters. This requires a large amount of computing power and resource sharing and thus become an ideal candidate for Grid Computing. This paper(More)
Hydrogenated multilayers (MLs) of a-Si/a-Ge have been analysed to establish the reasons of H release during annealing that has been seen to bring about structural modifications even up to well-detectable surface degradation. Analyses carried out on single layers of a-Si and a-Ge show that H is released from its bond to the host lattice atom and that it(More)
The protein disulfide isomerase from A. niger was cloned as a series of overlapping DNA-fragments generated using polymerase chain reaction technology and primers derived from conserved regions of published PDI amino acid sequences. The 5′ end of the gene was amplified using inverse PCR. Comparison of amino acid sequences from rat, wheat, yeast and another(More)
