Identification and quantification of mycothiol in Actinobacteria by a novel enzymatic method


Mycothiol (MSH) was reported to be the dominant low molecular weight thiol in members of the Actinobacteria. In this study, a simple, fast, and sensitive method for qualitative and quantitative determination of MSH molecules was developed based on maleylpyruvate isomerase (MPI) from Corynebacterium glutamicum. The principle of this method is that the… (More)
