The Escherichia coli rpoH gene is transcribed from four known and differently regulated promoters: P1, P3, P4 and P5. This study demonstrates that the conserved consensus sequence of the sigma54 promoter in the regulatory region of the rpoH gene, described previously, is a functional promoter, P6. The evidence for this conclusion is: (i) the specific(More)
The insertion of inner membrane proteins in Escherichia coli occurs almost exclusively via the SecYEG pathway, while some membrane proteins require the membrane protein insertase YidC. In vitro analysis demonstrates that subunit a of the F(1)F(0) ATP synthase (F(0)a) is strictly dependent on Ffh, SecYEG and YidC for its membrane insertion but independent of(More)
Peroxisomes play a major role in human cellular lipid metabolism, including fatty acid β-oxidation. The most frequent peroxisomal disorder is X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy, which is caused by mutations in ABCD1. The biochemical hallmark of X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy is the accumulation of very long chain fatty acids (VLCFAs) due to impaired peroxisomal(More)
