Klebsiella pneumoniae (KP), a Gram-negative bacterium, is a common cause of hospital-acquired bacterial infections worldwide. Tellurium (Te) compounds, although relatively rare in the environment, have a long history as antimicrobial and therapeutic agents. In bacteria, tellurite (TeO(3) (-2)) resistance is conferred by the ter (Te(r)) operon (terZABCDEF).(More)
Imidase is an enzyme, also known as dihydropyrimidinase (EC 3.5.2.2), hydantoinase, dihydropyrimidine hydrase or dihydropyrimidine amidohydrolase, that catalyzes the reversible hydrolysis of 5,6-dihydrouracil to 3-ureidopropionate and many other imides. Substrate specificity, metal content and amino-acid sequence all differ significantly between bacterial(More)
Fibronectin is a large cell adhesion molecule that is composed of several functional domains. The cell-binding domain that binds to cell surface integrins consists of repeated homologous type III modules. In this study, recombinant fragments from the cell-binding domain of human fibronectin that participate in a newly characterized fibronectin-fibronectin(More)
