Enhanced Bioaccumulation of Heavy Metal Ions by Bacterial Cells Due to Surface Display of Short Metal Binding Peptides
ABSTRACT Metal binding peptides of sequences Gly-His-His-Pro-His-Gly (named HP) and Gly-Cys-Gly-Cys-Pro-Cys-Gly-Cys-Gly (named CP) were genetically engineered into LamB protein and expressed inExpand

Bioaccumulation of silver in ectomycorrhizal and saprobic macrofungi from pristine and polluted areas.
Macrofungi are effective accumulators of Ag. This study provides a comprehensive review of this phenomenon supported by original data on the Ag concentrations of macrofungi from pristine andExpand

Cadmium-induced production of phytochelatins and speciation of intracellular cadmium in organs of Linum usitatissimum seedlings
Abstract The capacity of most flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) varieties and cultivars to accumulate cadmium (Cd), underlined by their Cd-tolerant phenotype, brought an interest in their use inExpand

Hyperaccumulation of silver by Amanita strobiliformis and related species of the section Lepidella.
Two ectomycorrhizal macrofungal Amanita species of the section Lepidella, A. strobiliformis and A. solitaria, were found to hyperaccumulate silver (Ag). All samples were collected fromExpand

Transcriptionally regulated adhA gene encodes alcohol dehydrogenase required for ethanol and n-propanol utilization in Corynebacterium glutamicum R
Corynebacterium glutamicum R adhA gene encodes a homodimeric, NAD-dependent, 345 amino acid residue alcohol dehydrogenase with two zinc ions per subunit. Chromosomal inactivation of the adhA geneExpand
