  • 23 August 1998
The Escherichia coli polyphosphate kinase (PPK) has been known to catalyze the reversible transfer of phosphate molecules between ATP and polyphosphate (poly(P)). It has also been found that the PPKExpand

A novel ATP regeneration system using polyphosphate-AMP phosphotransferase and polyphosphate kinase.
Polyphosphate-AMP phosphotransferase (PAP) and polyphosphate kinase (PPK) were used for designing a novel ATP regeneration system, named the PAP-PPK ATP regeneration system. PAP is an enzyme thatExpand

Inorganic polyphosphate and polyphosphate kinase: their novel biological functions and applications.
In this review, we discuss the following two subjects: 1) the physiological function of polyphosphate (poly(P)) as a regulatory factor for gene expression in Escherichia coli, and 2) novel functionsExpand

The polyphosphate kinase gene of Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
We have cloned and sequenced a gene encoding polyphosphate kinase (PPK) from Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1. The gene immediately follows the hemB gene encoding porphobilinogen synthase responsible forExpand

Biosynthetic pathways of brassinolide in Arabidopsis.
Our previous studies on the endogenous brassinosteroids (BRs) in Arabidopsis have provided suggestive evidence for the operation of the early C6-oxidation and the late C6-oxidation pathways, leadingExpand

Novel Method for Enzymatic Synthesis of CMP-NeuAc
A novel method for synthesizing CMP-NeuAc was established. We first confirmed that the putative neuA gene of Haemophilus influenzae, identified by its whole genome sequence project, indeed encodesExpand

Convergent and stereoselective method for synthesis of O-linked oxepane ring system by intramolecular radical cyclization
Abstract A new strategy for the construction of O -linked oxepane ring system is described. The present method involves regioselective acetal cleavage by i -Bu 2 AlSePh and intramolecular radicalExpand

Synthesis of the FGH ring fragment of ciguatoxin
Abstract Stereoselective synthesis of the FGH ring fragment of ciguatoxin is described. The key steps in the present synthesis are an intramolecular radical cyclization to construct oxepane ring GExpand

Intramolecular radical cyclization-ring-closing metathesis approach to fused polycyclic ethers. Convergent synthesis and conformational analysis of the (E)FGH ring system of ciguatoxin.
A convergent synthetic route to the (E)FGH ring system 4 of ciguatoxins, the causative toxins for ciguatera fish poisoning, has been developed. The synthesis features convergent coupling to formExpand

Indoline derivatives II: synthesis and factor Xa (FXa) inhibitory activities.
Factor Xa (FXa) is well known to play a pivotal role in blood coagulation, so FXa inhibitor is a promising drug candidate for prophylaxis and treatment of thromboembolic diseases. In the course ofExpand
