To ascertain whether position 131 of a mesophilic protease, subtilisin BPN', is a potential critical site for cold adaptation as screened by evolutionary engineering (S. Taguchi, A. Ozaki, and H. Momose, Appl. Environ. Microbiol. 64:492-495, 1998), a full set of subtilisin BPN' mutants with mutations at position 131 was constructed by site-saturation(More)
Assay on a high-quality microtiter plate was found to allow for quantitative analysis of bacterial serine protease, subtilisin BPN', and its mutant enzymes which had been genetically engineered to be adapted to low-temperatures (Taguchi et al., 1998. Appl. Environ. Microbiol. 64, 492-495), by using polyclonal antibody against subtilisin BPN'. The use of(More)
Entrainment to light cycle is a prerequisite for circadian rhythms to set daily physiological events to occur at an appropriate time of day. In hemimetabolous insects, the photoreceptor molecule for photic entrainment is still unknown. Since the compound eyes are the only circadian photoreceptor in the cricket Gryllus bimaculatus, we have investigated the(More)
