Proteomic analysis of Pseudomonas putida KT2440 cultured in monocyclic aromatic compounds was performed using 2-DE/MS and cleavable isotope-coded affinity tag (ICAT) to determine whether proteins involved in aromatic compound degradation pathways were altered as predicted by genomic analysis (Jiménez et al., Environ Microbiol. 2002, 4, 824-841). Eighty(More)
Tetracycline-induced proteome of Pseudomonas putida KT2440 was analyzed by 2-D gel electrophoresis and matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization–time of flight/mass spectrum (NALDI-TOF/MS) in order to understand cellular response to tetracycline. Of the proteins upregulated in a culture medium containing subinhibitory concentration of tetracycline (50(More)
Acinetobacter lwoffii K24 is a known aniline-degrading bacterium. In previous studies, two catechol branches of the beta-ketoadipate pathway were reported to be induced for aniline degradation, and related enzymes (CatA(1) and CatA(2)) were identified from the aniline-induced proteome of A. lwoffii K24 [S.I. Kim, S.H. Leem, J.S. Choi, Y.H. Chung, S. Kim,(More)
Pseudomonas putida KT2440 is a metabolically versatile soil bacterium. To examine the effects of an aromatic compound on the proteome of this bacterium, cytosolic proteins induced by the presence of benzoate and succinate were analyzed using two liquid chromatography (LC)-based proteomic approaches: an isobaric tag for relative and absolute quantitation(More)
Acinetobacter baumannii is a Gram-negative, nonmotile aerobic bacterium that has emerged as an important nosocomial pathogen. Multidrug-resistant (MDR) A. baumannii is difficult to treat with antibiotics, and treatment failure in infected patients is of great concern in clinical settings. To investigate proteome regulation in A. baumannii under antibiotic(More)
Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is the most prevalent and serious metabolic disease affecting people worldwide. T2DM results from insulin resistance of the liver, muscle, and adipose tissue. In this study, we used proteomic and bioinformatic methodologies to identify novel hepatic membrane proteins that are related to the development of hepatic insulin(More)
Pseudomonas sp. K82 is a soil bacterium that can degrade and use monocyclic aromatic compounds including aniline, 3-methylaniline, 4-methylaniline, benzoate and p-hydroxybenzoate as its sole carbon and energy sources. In order to understand the impact of these aromatic compounds on metabolic pathways in Pseudomonas sp. K82, proteomes obtained from cultures(More)
In this study, the biodegradative activities of monocyclic aromatic compounds were determined from the multi-drug resistant (MDR) Acinetobacter baumannii, which were studied in the form of clinical isolates from a hospital in Korea. These bacteria were capable of biodegrading monocyclic aromatic compounds, such as benzoate and p-hydroxybenzoate. In order to(More)
In shotgun proteomics, proteins can be fractionated by 1-D gel electrophoresis and digested into peptides, followed by liquid chromatography to separate the peptide mixture. Mass spectrometry generates hundreds of thousands of tandem mass spectra from these fractions, and proteins are identified by database searching. However, the search scores are usually(More)
Pseudomonas sp. K82 has been reported to be an aniline-assimilating soil bacterium. However, this strain can use not only aniline as a sole carbon and energy source, but can also utilize benzoate, p-hydroxybenzoate, and aniline analogues. The strain accomplishes this metabolic diversity by using different aerobic pathways. Pseudomonas sp. K82, when cultured(More)
