Complete DNA sequence of yeast chromosome XI
The complete DNA sequence of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae chromosome XI has been determined. In addition to a compact arrangement of potential protein coding sequences, the 666,448-base-pairExpand

Subtilosin Production by Two Bacillus subtilis Subspecies and Variance of the sbo-alb Cluster
ABSTRACT Eight different Bacillus subtilis strains and Bacillus atrophaeus were found to produce the bacteriocin subtilosin A. On the basis of the subtilosin gene (sbo) sequences two distinct classesExpand

Activation of subtilin precursors by Bacillus subtilis extracellular serine proteases subtilisin (AprE), WprA, and Vpr.
The maturation of the peptide antibiotic (lantibiotic) subtilin in Bacillus subtilis ATCC 6633 includes posttranslational modifications of the propeptide and proteolytic cleavage of the leaderExpand

Expression and functional analysis of the subtilin immunity genes spaIFEG in the subtilin-sensitive host Bacillus subtilis MO1099.
Bacillus subtilis ATCC 6633 produces the cationic pore-forming lantibiotic subtilin, which preferentially acts on gram-positive microorganisms; self protection of the producer cells is mediated byExpand

Proteins of Newly Isolated Mutants and the Amino-terminal Proline Are Essential for Ubiquitin-Proteasome-catalyzed Catabolite Degradation of Fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase of Saccharomyces cerevisiae *
Addition of glucose to cells of the yeastSaccharomyces cerevisiae growing on a non-fermentable carbon source leads to selective and rapid degradation of fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase. This so calledExpand

The Solution Structure of the Lantibiotic Immunity Protein NisI and Its Interactions with Nisin*
Background: The lipoprotein NisI confers immunity to Lactococcus lactis against its own lantibiotic nisin. Results: NisI contains a membrane and a nisin binding domain both with the same fold as SpaIExpand

The First Structure of a Lantibiotic Immunity Protein, SpaI from Bacillus subtilis, Reveals a Novel Fold*
Background: The periplasmic lipoprotein SpaI protects the subtilin-producing Bacillus subtilis against its own lantibiotic by an unknown mechanism. Results: The first structure of a lantibioticExpand

NMR resonance assignment of the autoimmunity protein SpaI from Bacillus subtilis ATCC 6633
Bacillus subtilis ATCC 6633 produces the lipid II targeting lantibiotic subtilin. For self-protection these gram-positive bacteria express a cluster of four self-immunity proteins named SpaIFEG. SpaIExpand
