In Streptomyces fradiae, calcium ions induce alterations in intensity and specificity of the secondary metabolism and stimulate aerial mycelium formation and sporulation. Using in vitro labeling, we demonstrate that in S. fradiae in the late exponential growth phosphorylation of 65-kDa membrane-associated protein is also influenced by Ca(2+) added(More)
In Streptomyces fradiae, calcium ions induce alterations in intensity and specificity of the secondary metabolism and stimulate sporulation. Using in vivo labeling, we demonstrate that in S. fradiae phosphorylation of some proteins are also influenced by Ca2+ added exogenously. Calcium ions at physiological concentration increase phosphorylation of multiple(More)
Neurochordins are a family of immunologically interrelated high-M(r) neural tissue glycoproteins which includes four major molecular species and several minor ones. Incubation of the total preparation of immunoaffinity-isolated neurochordins with ATP and rabbit casein kinase 1 resulted in phosphorylation of two neurochordin polypeptides, A and B3. The(More)
In Streptomyces rimosus, selection with aminoglycoside kanamycin triggers "silent" aminoglycoside 3'-phosphotransferase (aph) VIII gene. Expression of aphVIII was accompanied by amplification of a chromosomal DNA fragment, which contained aphVIII. Earlier, S. rimosus aphVIII gene was isolated, sequenced, and deduced APHVIII protein sequence was reported.(More)
Cell-free extracts of Streptomyces lividans prepared at the physiological ionic strength from the early logarithmic phase culture showed an endogenous protein kinase activity. Incubation of the salt soluble fraction of S.lividans with [gamma-32P]ATP led to incorporation of the labelled phospate into 6 to 7 polypeptide chains of 12-100 kDa. Addition of(More)
The antibiotic oligomycin A in the presence of K(2)CO(3) and n-Bu(4)NHSO(4) in chloroform in phase-transfer conditions afforded a novel derivative through the initial retro-aldol fragmentation of the 8,9 bond, followed by further transformation of the intermediate aldehyde. NMR, MS and quantum chemical calculations showed that the novel compound is the(More)
Two cAMP-independent protein kinases isolated from rabbit liver extracts phosphorylate casein far more effectively than histones. The first protein kinase consists of one polypeptide chain (Mr = 37,000), utilizes exclusively ATP and is not inhibited in the presence of low heparin and RNA concentrations. The second protein kinase consists of three subunits(More)
