Structure, interaction and post-translational modification study of arsenic reduction system in Bifidobacterium longum

Abstract

Microbial metabolism contributes to degradation of organoarsenicals, where arsenic reductases (glutaredoxins) play pivotal role in bacterial resistance to arsenic. Ars operon studies have revealed reduction of arsenate As(V) to arsenite As(III) by respiratory-chainlinked reductase enzyme complexes. Although structure of some bacterial arsenate reductases… (More)
