    Background: Mycobacteria use inositol in phosphatidylinositol, for anchoring lipoarabinomannan (LAM),lipomannan (LM) and phosphatidylinosotol mannosides (PIMs) in the cell envelope, and for the production ofmycothiol, which maintains the redox balance of the cell. Inositol is synthesized by...

    The pssB gene of Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. trifolii encodes a protein of 284 amino acids with sequence similarity to eukaryotic inositol monophosphatases. The gene was cloned and overexpressed in Escherichia coli. The purified gene product of pssB showed inositol monophosphatase activity with...

    The human IMPA2 gene encoding myo-inositol monophosphatase 2 is highly implicated with bipolar disorder but the substrates and the reaction mechanism of myo-inositol monophosphatase 2 have not been well elucidated.9 In the present study, we constructed 3D models of three- and two-Mg-ion bound...

    Background: In Escherichia coli, nagD, yrfG, yjjG, yieH, yigL, surE, and yfbR encode 5'-nucleotidases that hydrolyze the phosphate group of 5'-nucleotides. In Bacillus subtilis, genes encoding 5'-nucleotidase have remained to be identified. Results: We found that B. subtilis ycsE, araL, yutF,...

  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis Cell Division Protein, FtsE, is an ATPase in Dimeric Form. Mondal, Sukanta; Rajeswari, Haryadi; Mir, Mushtaq; Ramakumar, Suryanarayanarao; Arumugam, Muthu; Ajitkumar, Parthasarathi // Protein Journal;Feb2015, Vol. 34 Issue 1, p35 

    FtsE is one of the earliest cell division proteins that assembles along with FtsX at the mid-cell site during cell division in Escherichia coli. Both these proteins are highly conserved across diverse bacterial genera and are predicted to constitute an ABC transporter type complex, in which FtsE...

    The genome sequence of the cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC6803 revealed four Open reading frame (ORF) encoding putative inositol monophosphatase or inositol monophosphatase-like proteins. One of the ORFs, sll1383, is ∼870 base pair long and has been assigned as a probable myo-inositol...

    Fad35R from Mycobacterium tuberculosis binds to the promoter site of Fad35 operon and its DNA binding activities are reduced in the presence of tetracycline and palmitoyl-CoA. We resolved the crystal structure of Fad35R using single-wavelength anomalous diffraction method (SAD). Fad35R comprises...

    Lithium is the most effective mood stabilizer for the treatment of bipolar disorder, but it is toxic at only twice the therapeutic dosage and has many undesirable side effects. It is likely that a small molecule could be found with lithium-like efficacy but without toxicity through target-based...

    Tuberculous latency and reactivation play a significant role in the pathogenesis of tuberculosis, yet the mechanisms that regulate these processes remain unclear. The Mycobacterium tuberculosis universal stress protein (USP) homolog, rv2623, is among the most highly induced genes when the...
