Purification and Characterization of L-2,3-Butanediol Dehydrogenase of Brevibacterium saccharolyticum C-1012 Expressed in Escherichia coli
The L-2,3-butanediol dehydrogenase produced in E. coli JM109/pLBD2-CTC was purified by 5 steps. The molecular mass of this enzyme was estimated at 110 kDa and the subunit was mesured to be 30 kDa.Expand

Production of l‐2,3‐butanediol by a new pathway constructed in Escherichia coli
Aims:  A metabolic pathway for l‐2,3‐butanediol (BD) as the main product has not yet been found. To rectify this situation, we attempted to produce l‐BD from diacetyl (DA) by producing simultaneousExpand

Crystal structure of meso-2,3-butanediol dehydrogenase in a complex with NAD+ and inhibitor mercaptoethanol at 1.7 A resolution for understanding of chiral substrate recognition mechanisms.
The crystal structure of a ternary complex of meso-2,3-butanediol dehydrogenase with NAD+ and a competitive inhibitor, mercaptoethanol, has been determined at 1.7 A resolution by means of molecularExpand

Unilateral interhemispheric keyhole approach for anterior cerebral artery aneurysms.
A special midline interhemispheric keyhole approach to the anterior communicating artery aneurysms is described. A small trephine opening of 3 cm in diameter is used in most cases. The detailedExpand

Structural basis for chiral substrate recognition by two 2,3‐butanediol dehydrogenases
2,3‐Butanediol dehydrogenase (BDH) catalyzes the NAD‐dependent redox reaction between acetoin and 2,3‐butanediol. There are three types of homologous BDH, each stereospecific for both substrate andExpand

Enzymic Synthesis of Leukotriene B4 in Guinea Pig Brain
Abstract: Leukotriene B4 [5(S), 12(R)‐dihydroxy‐6,14‐cis‐8,10‐trans‐eicosatetraenoic acid] was obtained from endogenous arachidonic acid when slices of the guinea pig brain cortex were incubated withExpand
