The sheath of Leptothrix cholodnii is constructed from a structural glycoconjugate, a straight-chained amphoteric heteropolysaccharide modified with glycine and cysteine. Though the structure of the glycan core is already determined, its modifications with amino acids and other molecules are not fully resolved. In this study, we aimed to determine the chemical structure of the glycoconjugate as a whole. Enantiomeric determination of cysteine in the sheath was performed and as a result, L… Expand
Study of a novel glycoconjugate, thiopeptidoglycan, and a novel polysaccharide lyase, thiopeptidoglycan lyase.
TLDR
A novel glycoconjugate category named thiopeptidoglycan and a novel polysaccharide lyase named thoichiometric-dipeptide repeating unit and thiopesaccharide Lyase namedThiopepticoglycan lyase are proposed based on the present and earlier findings. Expand
Structure of perosamine-containing polysaccharide, a component of the sheath of Thiothrix fructosivorans.
TLDR
A sheath-forming and sulfur-oxidizing bacterium, Thiothrix fructosivorans, was heterotrophically cultured and solid-state (13)C-nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrum revealed that the sheath is assembled from a glycan possessing acetyl and methyl groups. Expand
Presence of N-L-lactyl-D-perosamine residue in the sheath-forming polysaccharide of Thiothrix fructosivorans.
TLDR
Thiothrix fructosivorans forms a microtube (sheath) that encloses a line of cells and it was concluded that Rha4N is mostly N-l-lactylated and GlcN is substoichiometrically N-acetylated. Expand
Presence of alternating glucosaminoglucan in the sheath of Thiothrix nivea.
TLDR
The sheath of T. nivea is hypothesized to be assembled from alternately β-1,4-linked glucosaminoglucan grafted with unidentified deoxypentose, and the polymer had a repeating unit of →4)-D-Glcp and D-GlcNp in the polymer, suggesting that it is not a proteinous supermolecule. Expand
Patterns of sheath elongation, cell proliferation, and manganese(II) oxidation in Leptothrix cholodnii
TLDR
The combined data reveal the spatiotemporal relationships among sheath elongation, cell proliferation, and Mn oxide deposition in L. cholodnii. Expand
Synthesis and Assembly of a Novel Glycan Layer in Myxococcus xanthus Spores*
TLDR
The spore coat glycan is a novel de novo synthesized structural glycan layer that is secreted by Exo and rigidified by Nfs machineries. Expand
Elongation pattern and fine structure of the sheaths formed by Thiothrix nivea and Thiothrix fructosivorans.
TLDR
The patterns of sheath formation and cell proliferation were determined and epifluorescence images demonstrated that cell proliferation also proceeds ubiquitously, suggesting that sheath elongation proceeds surrounding an elongating cell. Expand
Formation of Gold Particles via Thiol Groups on Glycoconjugates Comprising the Sheath Skeleton of Leptothrix
Abstract Leptothrix, iron-oxidizing bacterium, produces microtubular sheaths that surround the catenulate cells. Organic nanofibrils excreted from the cell surfaces interweave and coalesce to formExpand
Biosorption of metal elements by exopolymer nanofibrils excreted from Leptothrix cells.
TLDR
The present results show that the constitutive protein-free exopolymer nanofibrils of the sheaths can contribute to creating novel filtering materials for recovering and recycling useful and/or hazardous elements from the environment. Expand

Structural Analysis of the Fundamental Polymer of the Sheath Constructed by Sphaerotilus natans
TLDR
The sheath of Sphaerotilus natans was deduced to be formed by association of a mucopolysaccharide modified with N-acetyl-L-cysteinylglycine, and the disaccharide and dipeptide moieties were found to be connected by an amide bond. Expand
Structural analysis of the sheath of a sheathed bacterium, Leptothrix cholodnii.
TLDR
NMR analysis of the hydrazinolysate revealed that the polysaccharide moiety of the sheath was constructed from a pentasaccharide repeating unit containing 2-amino-2-deoxygalacturonic acid (GalNA), as shown below. Expand
Identification of 2-(Cysteinyl)amido-2-deoxy-D-galacturonic Acid Residue from the Sheath of Leptothrix cholodnii
TLDR
The sheath of Leptothrix cholodnii is a glycoconjugate composed of a polysaccharide and a peptide rich in cysteine and was found to contain 2-(cysteinyl)amido-2-deoxy-D-galacturonic acid residue. Expand
Role of disulfide bonds in maintaining the structural integrity of the sheath of Leptothrix discophora SP-6
TLDR
Results confirm that the sheath fibrils consist of high molecular-weight heteropolysaccharide-protein complexes and hypothesize that proteins in the fibril complexes provide interfibril cross-linking to maintain the structural integrity of the she Heath. Expand
Structure of the polysaccharide isolated from the sheath of Sphaerotilus natans.
TLDR
The resulting data showed that SPS is a straight-chained basic polysaccharide constructed of a pentasaccharide repeating unit. Expand
PATTERN OF SHEATH SYNTHESIS IN SPHAEROTILUS NATANS
TLDR
Results indicate that sheath synthesis does not take place by intussusception or diffuse intercalation, but by linear extension of pre-existing sheath. Expand
