    In vitro and in vivo Assessment of Protein Acetylation Status in Mycobacteria
    Authors:  Krishna K. Singh, Devendra P. Singh, Rambir Singh and Deepak K. Saini, date: 07/05/2019, view: 775, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Protein acetylation is one of the standard post-translational modifications found in proteins across all organisms, along with phosphorylation which regulates diverse cellular processes. Acetylation of proteins can be enzymatically catalyzed through acetyltransferases, acetyl CoA synthetases or non-enzymatically through acyl carrier metabolic ...
    Detection of D-glutamate Production from the Dual Function Enzyme, 4-amino-4-deoxychorismate Lyase/D-amino Acid Transaminase, in Mycobacterium smegmatis
    Authors:  Helen K. Opel-Reading, Roman Mortuza and Kurt L. Krause, date: 01/05/2019, view: 1697, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] D-amino acid transaminase (D-AAT) is able to synthesize both D-glutamate and D-alanine, according to the following reaction: D-alanine + α-ketoglutarate ⇌ D-glutamate + pyruvate. These two D-amino acids are essential components of the peptidoglycan layer of bacteria. In our recently published work, MSMEG_5795 from Mycobacterium smegmatis ...
    Separation of Free and Bound cAMP in Mycobacteria
    Authors:  Arka Banerjee and Sandhya S. Visweswariah, date: 07/20/2016, view: 4815, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Mycobacterial genomes encode a plethora of genes that are involved in the synthesis, utilization and degradation of cAMP. The genome of M. tuberculosis H37Rv, for example, encodes 16 adenylyl cyclases and 10 genes harbouring the cyclic nucleotide-binding (CNB) domain (Shenoy and Visweswariah, 2006). Cyclic AMP is efficiently secreted by ...
