Topics from this paper

Crystal structure determination and dynamic studies of Mycobacterium tuberculosis Cytidine deaminase in complex with products.
The crystal structures of Mycobacterium tuberculosis CDA in complex with uridine and deoxyuridine are reported, showing that structural flexibility of some protein regions are important to product binding in MtCDA. Expand
Purine Salvage Pathway in Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
Enzyme kinetics and structural data have been included to provide a thorough knowledge on which to base the search for compounds with biological activity in M. tuberculosis as potential targets for the development of new antitubercular agents. Expand
Structural and functional analyses of Mycobacterium tuberculosis Rv3315c-encoded metal-dependent homotetrameric cytidine deaminase.
Results and multiple sequence alignment demonstrate that MtCDA is a homotetrameric Zn(2+)-dependent metalloenzyme and exhibits the canonical cytidine deaminase fold. Expand
Presence of a specific uridine 5′-monophosphate pyrophosphorylase in baker's yeast
Uridine 5′-monophosphate pyrophosphorylase was found to be present in baker's yeast and shows a strict specificity toward uracil and requires Mg++ for its activity. Expand
Baker's yeast cytidine deaminase: Substrate and inhibitor specificity, and a hypothesis on metabolic and regulatory significance
La citidina deaminasi, parzialmente purificata da lievito di pane, è capace di deaminare sia la citidina che la deossicitidina. I valori delleK m per ambedue i 2 substrati sono 25×10−5 M e 9.1×10−5 MExpand
Blasticidin S-resistance gene (bsr): a novel selectable marker for mammalian cells.
The blasticidin S-resistance gene (bsr), isolated from Bacillus cereus K55-S1 strain, was inserted into pSV2 plasmid vector and introduced into cultured mammalian cells by transfection and was concluded to be useful as a drug-res resistance marker for mammalian cells. Expand
Some kinetic studies on ribonucleosides degradation by extracts of penicillium citrinum
Cell-free extracts of 3–4 days old mats of nitrate-grown Penicillium citrinum catalyze the hydrolytic cleavage of the N-glycosidic bonds of inosine, guanosine and adenosine optimally at pH 4, 0.1 MExpand
Assay of cytosine and cytidine by means of reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography
Abstract A rapid and sensitive high-performance liquid chromatographic assay for cytosine and cytidine deaminases, based upon the chromatographic separation and subsequent ultraviolet detection ofExpand
