Cyclodipeptides are secondary metabolites biosynthesized by many bacteria and exhibit a wide array of biological activities. Recently, a new class of small proteins, named cyclodipeptide synthases (CDPS), which are unrelated to the typical nonribosomal peptide synthetases, was shown to generate several cyclodipeptides, using aminoacyl-tRNAs as substrates.(More)
A cDNA clone encoding extracellular lipase I (TFL I) from Trichosporon fermentans WU-C12 was isolated and characterized. The TFL I cDNA was isolated from a lambda gt10-based cDNA library using as a probe a 0.8 kb fragment, amplified by PCR with synthetic oligonucleotide corresponding to the partial amino acid sequences of TFL I. The cDNA encodes a protein(More)
Ribosome biogenesis requires multiple assembly factors. In Escherichia coli, deletion of RlmE, the methyltransferase responsible for the 2'-O-methyluridine modification at position 2552 (Um2552) in helix 92 of the 23S rRNA, results in slow growth and accumulation of the 45S particle. We demonstrate that the 45S particle that accumulates in ΔrlmE is a(More)
