Organization of lin genes and IS6100 among different strains of hexachlorocyclohexane-degrading Sphingomonas paucimobilis: evidence for horizontal gene transfer.
The organization of lin genes and IS6100 was studied in three strains of Sphingomonas paucimobilis (B90A, Sp+, and UT26) which degraded hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH) isomers but which had been isolatedExpand

Diversity, distribution and divergence of lin genes in hexachlorocyclohexane-degrading sphingomonads.
Two forms of hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH), gamma-HCH (lindane) and technical HCH (incorporating alpha-, beta-, gamma- and delta- isomers), have been used against agricultural pests and in healthExpand

Hexachlorocyclohexane-degrading bacterial strains Sphingomonas paucimobilis B90A, UT26 and Sp+, having similar lin genes, represent three distinct species, Sphingobium indicum sp. nov., Sphingobium
Three strains of Sphingomonas paucimobilis, B90A, UT26 and Sp+, isolated from different geographical locations, were found to degrade hexachlorocyclohexane. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNAExpand

Proposal to reclassify [Sphingomonas] xenophaga Stolz et al. 2000 and [Sphingomonas] taejonensis Lee et al. 2001 as Sphingobium xenophagum comb. nov. and Sphingopyxis taejonensis comb. nov.,
The sphingomonad group contains bacterial isolates that are quite diverse in terms of their phylogenetic, ecological and physiological properties. Thus, the genus Sphingomonas was divided into fourExpand

Overexpression of the PDZ1 Domain of PDZK1 Blocks the Activity of Hepatic Scavenger Receptor, Class B, Type I by Altering Its Abundance and Cellular Localization*
PDZK1 is a four-PDZ domain-containing scaffold protein that, via its first PDZ domain (PDZ1), binds to the C terminus of the high density lipoprotein (HDL) receptor scavenger receptor, class B, typeExpand

Noncanonical Role of the PDZ4 Domain of the Adaptor Protein PDZK1 in the Regulation of the Hepatic High Density Lipoprotein Receptor Scavenger Receptor Class B, Type I (SR-BI)*
Background: PDZK1 (four PDZ domains) regulates the hepatic HDL receptor SR-BI. Results: PDZK1's PDZ2 and PDZ3 domains are not required, whereas PDZ4 is, possibly because PDZ4 mediates membraneExpand

In Vitro and in Vivo Analysis of the Binding of the C Terminus of the HDL Receptor Scavenger Receptor Class B, Type I (SR-BI), to the PDZ1 Domain of Its Adaptor Protein PDZK1*
The PDZ1 domain of the four PDZ domain-containing protein PDZK1 has been reported to bind the C terminus of the HDL receptor scavenger receptor class B, type I (SR-BI), and to control hepatic SR-BIExpand
