Detailed studies on the biosynthesis of the hexasaccharide side chain of landomycin A, produced by S. cyanogenus S136, revealed the function of each glycosyltransferase gene of the biosynthetic gene cluster. Analyses of generated mutants as well as feeding experiments allowed us to determine that LanGT2 and LanGT3 catalyze the attachment of one sugar,(More)
The glycosyltransferase LanGT2 is involved in the biosynthesis of the hexasaccharide side chain of the angucyclic antibiotic landomycin A. Its function was elucidated by targeted gene inactivation of lanGT2. The main metabolite of the obtained mutant was identified as tetrangulol (4), the progenitor of the landomycin aglycon (7). The lack of the sugar side(More)
Enzyme immunoassays based on the use of monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) were developed for the detection of the barley stripe mosaic virus (BSMV) and the beet necrotic yellow vein virus (BNYVV). Assays employing conjugates of MAbs to horseradish peroxidase (HRP) were compared to systems with biotinylated MAbs and streptavidin conjugated either to monomeric HRP(More)
New 3-substituted 1-(3-hydroxyphenyl)-5-oxopyrrolidine derivatives containing hydrazone, azole, diazole, oxadiazole fragments, as well as 2-phenoxy- and 2,3-diphenoxy-1,4-naphthoquinone derivatives were synthesized. The structure of all compounds has been confirmed by NMR, IR, mass spectra, and elemental analysis data. Methyl(More)
A novel series of substituted 1,4-naphthoquinone derivatives was synthesized and evaluated for antibacterial and antifungal activity. The structures of the novel products were characterized by spectroscopic methods. Among the tested compounds, 3a and 9 are the most effective compounds against M. luteum as potent antibacterial and C. tenuis and A. niger as(More)
The CDMS experiment is searching for WIMP dark matter in our galaxy with novel cryogenic detectors that reject background photons. The experiment has begun first data taking in the summer and fall of 1996 (covering a period that extends beyond the date of this conference). We report on results from 60 g germanium and 100 g silicon detectors, including an(More)
The influence of new derivatives of 9,10-anthraquinone with benzoylthiourea, thiazole, triazole and amino acid fragments on the activity of membrane-associated tyrosine kinases was investigated. Inhibitors of protein tyrosine kinase activity of the membrane fraction, as promising agents to search for new potential anticancer agents among the studied(More)
Poly(N-methacryloyl-l-leucine) (PNML) coatings were successfully fabricated via polymerization from peroxide initiator grafted to premodified glass substrate. Chemical composition and thickness of PNML coatings were determined using time of flight-secondary ion mass spectrometry (TOF- SIMS) and ellipsometry, respectively. PNML coatings exhibit thermal(More)
1,4-Naphthoquinones are unique reagents in organic synthesis and have been employed in several well known and recently developed areas of application. Furthermore, these 1,4-naphthoquinones have demonstrated high reactivity in nucleophilic vinylic substitutions, in the preparation of sulfurated, (hetero)cyclic and several other transformations.
