Mycobacterium tuberculosis infects millions worldwide. The Structural Genomics Consortium for M. tuberculosis has targeted all genes from this bacterium in hopes of discovering and developing new therapeutic agents. Open reading frame Rv0793 from M. tuberculosis was annotated with an unknown function. The 3-dimensional structure of Rv0793 has been solved to 1.6 Å resolution. Its structure is very similar to that of Streptomyces coelicolor ActVA-Orf6, a monooxygenase that participates in… Expand
A novel chimera: the "truncated hemoglobin-antibiotic monooxygenase" from Streptomyces avermitilis.
Novel functional roles of truncated hemoglobins are suggested, which might represent a vast class of multipurpose oxygen activating/scavenging proteins whose catalytic action is mediated by the interaction with cofactor free monooxygenases. Expand
Genomic insights into the virulence and salt tolerance of Staphylococcus equorum
Examination of the pan-genome of five of the six S. equorum strains showed that the conserved core genome retained the genes for general physiological processes and survival of the species. Expand
Two Novel Classes of Enzymes Are Required for the Biosynthesis of Aurofusarin in Fusarium graminearum*
Functional information is provided on two novel classes of proteins and their contribution to polyketide pigment biosynthesis in Fusarium graminearum and aurZ and aurS. Expand
Monooxygenases as biocatalysts: Classification, mechanistic aspects and biotechnological applications.
An exclusive overview of known monooxygenases is presented, based on the type of cofactor that these enzymes require, which includes not only the cytochrome P450 and flavin-dependent mono oxygengenases, but also enzymes that utilize pterin, metal ions, or no cofactor at all. Expand
Structural basis for olivetolic acid formation by a polyketide cyclase from Cannabis sativa
Observations demonstrated that OAC employs unique catalytic machinery utilizing acid/base catalytic chemistry for the formation of the precursor of OA, providing the foundation for analyses of the plant polyketide cyclases that will be discovered in the future. Expand
In silico characterization of a novel putative aerotaxis chemosensory system in the myxobacterium, Corallococcus coralloides
In silico characterization of a putative energy taxis cluster, Cc-5, which is present in only one amongst 34 known and sequenced myxobacterial genomes, Corallococcus coralloides, is reported, suggesting that C. coralloide can sense and then respond to changing concentrations of molecular oxygen.

Application of Monooxygenases in Dehalogenation, Desulphurization, Denitrification and Hydroxylation of Aromatic Compounds
Monooxygenases act as biocatalysts in bioremediation process and synthetic chemistry due to their highly regioselectivity and sterioselectivity on wide range of substrates. They are involved in theExpand
NECAB2 orchestrates an endosomal pathway of mitochondrial quality control at striatal synapses
It is found that the neuronal calcium-binding protein NECAB2 ensures synaptic function in the striatum by increasing mitochondrial efficiency by orchestrating an endosomal pathway of mitochondrial quality control important for striatal function. Expand
Structural and functional characterization of Rv0792c from Mycobacterium tuberculosis: identifying small molecule inhibitors against GntR protein
In order to adapt in host tissues, microbial pathogens regulate their gene expression through an array of transcription factors. Here, we have functionally characterized Rv0792c, a GntR homolog fromExpand


A New Family of Type III Polyketide Synthases in Mycobacterium tuberculosis*
It is proposed that these proteins might have evolved by fusing the catalytic machinery of CHS and β-ketoacyl synthases, the two evolutionarily related members with conserved thiolase fold, to provide a fascinating example of metabolite divergence in CHS-like proteins. Expand
Identification of a monooxygenase from Streptomyces coelicolor A3(2) involved in biosynthesis of actinorhodin: purification and characterization of the recombinant enzyme
Site-directed mutagenesis was used to investigate the role of histidine residues thought to be important in the reaction; mutants lacking His-52 displayed much-reduced activity, consistent with the proposed mechanistic hypothesis that this histidine acts as a general base during catalysis. Expand
The structure of ActVA‐Orf6, a novel type of monooxygenase involved in actinorhodin biosynthesis
This is the first crystal structure of an enzyme involved in the tailoring of a type II aromatic polyketide and illustrates some of the enzyme–substrate recognition features that may apply to a range of other enzymes involved in modifying apolyketide core structure. Expand
A glycolipid of hypervirulent tuberculosis strains that inhibits the innate immune response
The identification and functional relevance of a highly biologically active lipid species—a polyketide synthase-derived phenolic glycolipid (PGL) produced by a subset of M. tuberculosis isolates belonging to the W-Beijing family that show ‘hyperlethality’ in murine disease models are described.

The crystal structure of YgiN is presented, a protein of hitherto unknown function that was able to reoxidize menadiol, the product of the “modulator of drug activity B” (MdaB) enzymatic reaction, lending evidence to the possible existence of a novel quinone redox cycle in E. coli. Expand
Cloning, Sequencing, and Heterologous Expression of the elmGHIJ Genes Involved in the Biosynthesis of the Polyketide Antibiotic Elloramycin from Streptomyces olivaceus Tü2353
These results provide direct biochemical evidence for the hypothesis that the biosynthesis of 1 in S. olivaceus parallels that of tetracenomycin C (2) in Streptomyces glaucescens and support the notion that the metabolism of the highly hydroxylated cyclohexenone moiety in other polyketides most likely follows the same paradigm as the tetracanomycin B2 or A...

It is proposed that the observed structural rearrangements are required to build up a zinc-independent but fully active and stable copper-containing SOD. Expand
Crystal structure of bacterial multidrug efflux transporter AcrB
The crystal structure of AcrB implies that substrates translocated from the cell interior through the transmembrane region and from the periplasm through the vestibules are collected in the central cavity and then actively transported through the pore into the TolC tunnel. Expand
