A corrinoid-dependent catabolic pathway for growth of a Methylobacterium strain with chloromethane. (1/71)

Methylobacterium sp. strain CM4, an aerobic methylotrophic alpha-proteobacterium, is able to grow with chloromethane as a carbon and energy source. Mutants of this strain that still grew with methanol, methylamine, or formate, but were unable to grow with chloromethane, were previously obtained by miniTn5 mutagenesis. The transposon insertion sites in six of these mutants mapped to two distinct DNA fragments. The sequences of these fragments, which extended over more than 17 kb, were determined. Sequence analysis, mutant properties, and measurements of enzyme activity in cell-free extracts allowed the definition of a multistep pathway for the conversion of chloromethane to formate. The methyl group of chloromethane is first transferred by the protein CmuA (cmu: chloromethane utilization) to a corrinoid protein, from where it is transferred to H4folate by CmuB. Both CmuA and CmuB display sequence similarity to methyltransferases of methanogenic archaea. In its C-terminal part, CmuA is also very similar to corrinoid-binding proteins, indicating that it is a bifunctional protein consisting of two domains that are expressed as separate polypeptides in methyl transfer systems of methanogens. The methyl group derived from chloromethane is then processed by means of pterine-linked intermediates to formate by a pathway that appears to be distinct from those already described in Methylobacterium. Remarkable features of this pathway for the catabolism of chloromethane thus include the involvement of a corrinoid-dependent methyltransferase system for dehalogenation in an aerobe and a set of enzymes specifically involved in funneling the C1 moiety derived from chloromethane into central metabolism.  (+info)

Methanol:coenzyme M methyltransferase from Methanosarcina barkeri -- substitution of the corrinoid harbouring subunit MtaC by free cob(I)alamin. (2/71)

Methyl-coenzyme M formation from coenzyme M and methanol in Methanosarcina barkeri is catalysed by an enzyme system composed of three polypeptides MtaA, MtaB and MtaC, the latter of which harbours a corrinoid prosthetic group. We report here that MtaC can be substituted by free cob(I)alamin which is methylated with methanol in an MtaB-catalysed reaction and demethylated with coenzyme M in an MtaA-catalysed reaction. Methyl transfer from methanol to coenzyme M was found to proceed at a relatively high specific activity at micromolar concentrations of cob(I)alamin. This finding was surprising because the methylation of cob(I)alamin catalysed by MtaB alone and the demethylation of methylcob(III)alamin catalysed by MtaA alone exhibit apparent Km for cob(I)alamin and methylcob(III)alamin of above 1 mm. A possible explanation is that MtaA positively affects the MtaB catalytic efficiency and vice versa by decreasing the apparent Km for their corrinoid substrates. Activation of MtaA by MtaB was methanol-dependent. In the assay for methanol:coenzyme M methyltransferase activity cob(I)alamin could be substituted by cob(I)inamide which is devoid of the nucleotide loop. Substitution was, however, only possible when the assays were supplemented with imidazole: approximately 1 mm imidazole being required for half-maximal activity. Methylation of cob(I)inamide with methanol was found to be dependent on imidazole but not on the demethylation of methylcob(III)inamide with coenzyme M. The demethylation reaction was even inhibited by imidazole. The structure and catalytic mechanism of the MtaABC complex are compared with the cobalamin-dependent methionine synthase.  (+info)

Native corrinoids from Clostridium cochlearium are adeninylcobamides: spectroscopic analysis and identification of pseudovitamin B(12) and factor A. (3/71)

The corrinoids from the obligate anaerobe Clostridium cochlearium were extracted as a mixture of Co(beta)-cyano derivatives. From 50 g of frozen cells, approximately 2 mg (1.5 micromol) of B(12) derivatives was obtained as a crystalline sample. Analysis of the corrinoid sample of C. cochlearium by a combination of high-pressure liquid chromatography and UV-Vis absorbance spectroscopy revealed the presence of three cyano corrinoids in a ratio of about 3:1:1. The spectroscopic data acquired for the sample indicated the main components to be pseudovitamin B(12) (Co(beta)-cyano-7"-adeninylcobamide) (60%) and factor A (Co(beta)-cyano-7"-[2-methyl]adeninylcobamide) (20%). Authentic pseudovitamin B(12) was prepared by guided biosynthesis from cobinamide and adenine. Both pseudovitamin B(12) and its homologue, factor A, were subjected to complete spectroscopic analysis by UV-Vis, circular dichroism, mass spectrometry, and by one- and two-dimensional (1)H, (13)C-, and (15)N nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. The third component was indicated by the mass spectra to be an isomer of factor A and is likely (according to NMR) to be 7"-[N(6)-methyl]-adeninylcobamide, a previously unknown corrinoid. C. cochlearium thus biosynthesizes as its native "complete" B(12) cofactors the 7"-adeninylcobamides and two homologous corrinoids, in which the nucleotide base is a methylated adenine.  (+info)

The enigma of cobalamin (Vitamin B12) biosynthesis in Porphyromonas gingivalis. Identification and characterization of a functional corrin pathway. (4/71)

The ability of Porphyromonas gingivalis to biosynthesize tetrapyrroles de novo has been investigated. Extracts of the bacterium do not possess activity for 5- aminolevulinic-acid dehydratase or porphobilinogen deaminase, two key enzymes involved in the synthesis of uroporphyrinogen III. Similarly, it was not possible to detect any genetic evidence for these early enzymes with the use of degenerate polymerase chain reaction. However, the bacterium does appear to harbor some of the enzymes for cobalamin biosynthesis since cobyric acid, a pathway intermediate, was converted into cobinamide. Furthermore, degenerate polymerase chain reaction with primers to cbiP, which encodes cobyric-acid synthase, produced a fragment with a high degree of identity to Salmonella typhimurium cbiP. Indeed, the recently released genome sequence data confirmed the presence of cbiP together with 14 other genes of the cobalamin pathway. A number of these genes were cloned and functionally characterized. Although P. gingivalis harbors all the genes necessary to convert precorrin-2 into cobalamin, it is missing the genes for the synthesis of precorrin-2. Either the organism has a novel pathway for the synthesis of precorrin-2, or more likely, it has lost this early part of the pathway. The remainder of the pathway may be being maintained to act as a salvage route for corrin synthesis.  (+info)

The Na(+)-translocating methyltransferase complex from methanogenic archaea. (5/71)

Methanogenic archaea are dependent on sodium ions for methane formation. A sodium ion-dependent step has been shown to be methyl transfer from N(5)-methyltetrahydromethanopterin to coenzyme M. This exergonic reaction (DeltaG degrees '=-30 kJ/mol) is catalyzed by a Na(+)-translocating membrane-associated multienzyme complex composed of eight different subunits, MtrA-H. Subunit MtrA harbors a cob(I)amide prosthetic group which is methylated and demethylated in the catalytic cycle, demethylation being sodium ion-dependent. Based on the finding that in the cob(II)amide oxidation state the corrinoid is bound in a base-off/His-on configuration it is proposed that methyl transfer from MtrA to coenzyme M is associated with a conformational change of the protein and that this change drives the electrogenic translocation of the sodium ions.  (+info)

Identification and in vivo characterization of PpaA, a regulator of photosystem formation in Rhodobacter sphaeroides. (6/71)

A regulatory protein, PpaA, involved in photosystem formation in the anoxygenic phototrophic proteobacterium Rhodobacter sphaeroides has been identified and characterized in vivo. Based on the phenotypes of cells expressing the ppaA gene in extra copy and on the phenotype of the ppaA null mutant, it was concluded that PpaA activates photopigment production and puc operon expression under aerobic conditions. This is in contrast to the function of the PpaA homologue from Rhodobacter capsulatus, AerR, which acts as a repressor under aerobic conditions [Dong, C., Elsen, S., Swem, L. R. & Bauer, C. E. (2002). J Bacteriol 184, 2805-2814]. The expression of the ppaA gene increases several-fold in response to a decrease in oxygen tension, suggesting that the PpaA protein is active under conditions of low or no oxygen. However, no discernible phenotype of a ppaA null mutant was observed under anaerobic conditions tested thus far. The photosystem gene repressor PpsR mediates repression of ppaA gene expression under aerobic conditions. Sequence analysis of PpaA homologues from several anoxygenic phototrophic bacteria revealed a putative corrinoid-binding domain. It is suggested that PpaA binds a corrinoid cofactor and the availability or structure of this cofactor affects PpaA activity.  (+info)

ABC transporter for corrinoids in Halobacterium sp. strain NRC-1. (7/71)

We report evidence for the existence of a putative ABC transporter for corrinoid utilization in the extremely halophilic archaeon Halobacterium sp. strain NRC-1. Results from genetic and nutritional analyses of Halobacterium showed that mutants with lesions in open reading frames (ORFs) Vng1370G, Vng1371Gm, and Vng1369G required a 10(5)-fold higher concentration of cobalamin for growth than the wild-type or parent strain. The data support the conclusion that these ORFs encode orthologs of the bacterial cobalamin ABC transporter permease (btuC; Vng1370G), ATPase (btuD; Vng1371Gm), and substrate-binding protein (btuF; Vng1369G) components. Mutations in the Vng1370G, Vng1371Gm, and Vng1369G genes were epistatic, consistent with the hypothesis that their products work together to accomplish the same function. Extracts of btuF mutant strains grown in the presence of cobalamin did not contain any cobalamin molecules detectable by a sensitive bioassay, whereas btuCD mutant strain extracts did. The data are consistent with the hypothesis that the BtuF protein is exported to the extracellular side of the cell membrane, where it can bind cobalamin in the absence of BtuC and BtuD. Our data also provide evidence for the regulation of corrinoid transport and biosynthesis. Halobacterium synthesized cobalamin in a chemically defined medium lacking corrinoid precursors. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first genetic analysis of an archaeal corrinoid transport system.  (+info)

Evidence for the involvement of corrinoids and factor F430 in the reductive dechlorination of 1,2-dichloroethane by Methanosarcina barkeri. (8/71)

Cobalamin and the native and diepimeric forms of factor F430 catalyzed the reductive dechlorination of 1,2-dichloroethane (1,2-DCA) to ethylene or chloroethane (CA) in a buffer with Ti(III) citrate as the electron donor. Ethylene was the major product in the cobalamin-catalyzed transformation, and the ratio of ethylene to CA formed was 25:1. Native F430 and 12,13-di-epi-F430 produced ethylene and CA in ratios of about 2:1 and 1:1, respectively. Cobalamin dechlorinated 1,2-DCA much faster than did factor F430. Dechlorination rates by all three catalysts showed a distinct pH dependence, correlated in a linear manner with the catalyst concentration and doubled with a temperature increase of 10 degrees C. Crude and boiled cell extracts of Methanosarcina barkeri also dechlorinated 1,2-DCA to ethylene and CA with Ti(III) citrate as the reductant. The catalytic components in boiled extracts were heat and oxygen stable and had low molecular masses. Fractionation of boiled extracts by a hydrophobic interaction column revealed that part of the dechlorinating components had a hydrophilic and part had a hydrophobic character. These chemical properties of the dechlorinating components and spectral analysis of boiled extracts indicated that corrinoids or factor F430 was responsible for the dechlorinations. The ratios of 3:1 to 7:1 of ethylene and CA formed by cell extracts suggested that both cofactors were concomitantly active.  (+info)

Corrinoids from various ovine tissue samples (liver, blood, small intestinal fluid and faeces) were analysed using a combination of high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and a radioisotope dilution assay (RIDA) to estimate the distribution of corrinoids - the cobalamins hydroxocobalamin (OH-cbl), methylcobalamin (me-cbl) and 5-deoxyadenosylcobalamin (ado-cbl), and cobalamin analogues - in these tissues. Samples were taken from either cobalt-deficient or cobalt-replete ewes, and ruminant and pre-ruminant lambs. In liver, ado-cbl predominated, followed by analogues, OH-cbl and me-cbl. Supplementation with either cobalt (ruminant) or vitamin B12 injections (pre-ruminant) increased the amount of ado-cbl and decreased analogues. In blood, OH-cbl predominated, followed by ado-cbl, analogues and me-cbl, respectively. In small intestinal fluid, the distribution from largest to smallest percentage was analogues, ado-cbl, OH-cbl and me-cbl. In faeces, analogues constituted the greatest proportion,
Background Corrinoids are an essential cofactor of reductive dehalogenases, the key enzymes of organohalide respiration (OHR). Dehalobacter restrictus is an obligate OHR bacterium (OHRB) able to conserve energy with tetrachloroethene, but is unable to de novo synthesize corrinoids. Genome analysis of D. restrictus strain PER-K23 however revealed the presence of the complete corrinoid biosynthesis pathway. Objectives The aim of the present study is to understand the corrinoid metabolism of D. restrictus strain PER-K23 at the level of biosynthesis, regulation and transport and to compare it to contrasting situations in other Dehalobacter strains. Methods Genome analysis was performed with standard bioinformatic tools. Both transcriptomic and proteomic approaches were applied on D. restrictus strain PER-K23 cells cultivated in media with alternative corrinoid conditions. Gene expression was further addressed using targeted reverse transcription and quantitative PCR. Growth and dechlorination of D. ...

The bacterium Salmonella enterica produces the corrin ring only under anaerobic conditions, but it can form "complete" corrinoids aerobically by importing an "incomplete" corrinoid, such as cobinamide (Cbi), and adding appropriate α- and β-axial ligands. Under aerobic conditions, S. enterica performs the corrinoid-dependent degradation of ethanolamine if given vitamin B12, but it can make B12 from exogenous Cbi only if DMB is also provided. Mutants isolated for their ability to degrade ethanolamine without added DMB converted Cbi to ...
Vitamin B12 is the largest and most complex of all vitamins. Vitamin B12 is the generic name for a specific group of cobalt-containing corrinoids from biological activity in humans.

The total synthesis of the complex biomolecule vitamin B12 was first accomplished by the collaborating research groups of Robert Burns Woodward at Harvard and Albert Eschenmoser at ETH in 1972. It is considered a classic in the field of total synthesis of natural products. Work on the synthesis started 1960 at ETH, and in 1961 at Harvard, it was collaboratively pursued after 1965, and required the effort of no less than 91 post-doctoral fellows (mostly at Harvard) and 12 Ph.D. students (at ETH) from 19 different nations. There are two variants of this synthesis, concomitantly accomplished in 1972. These two syntheses are intricately intertwined chemically, yet they basically differ in their overall strategy of creating the macrocyclic corrin ligand system of the vitamin molecule. The variant collaboratively pursued and finished at Harvard closes the macrocyclic corrin ring between rings A and B (the "A/B variant"), while the synthesis accomplished at ETH achieves the corrin ring closure between ...

Aiming at the use of vitamin B12 as a drug delivery carrier for cytotoxic agents, we have reacted vitamin B12 with trans-[PtCl(NH3)2(H2O)]+, [PtCl3(NH3)](-) and [PtCl4](2-). These Pt(II) precursors coordinated directly to the Co(III)-bound cyanide, giving the conjugates [(Co)-CN-(trans-PtCl(NH3)2)]+ (5), [(Co)-CN-(trans-PtCl2(NH3))] (6), [(Co)-CN-(cis-PtCl2(NH3))] (7) and [(Co)-CN-(PtCl3)](-) (8) in good yields. Spectroscopic analyses for all compounds and X-ray structure elucidation for 5 and 7 confirmed their authenticity and the presence of the central "Co-CN-Pt" motif. Applicability of these heterodinuclear conjugates depends primarily on serum stability. Whereas 6 and 8 transmetallated rapidly to bovine serum albumin proteins, compounds 5 and 7 were reasonably stable. Around 20% of cyanocobalamin could be detected after 48 h, while the remaining 80% was still the respective vitamin B12 conjugates. Release of the platinum complexes from vitamin B12 is driven by intracellular reduction of ...

As it is now presented in this publication, the discussion on the corrin nucleus is somewhat different in content from the discussion that occurred on 4 June 1964. There were then a number of short contributions on alternative approaches to the syntheses of the B12 vitamins from that adopted by Eschenmoser and his co-workers; these will in due course be published elsewhere. In their place, it has been possible to include here the crystallographic examination of the structure of the cobalt pseudo-corrin complex obtained during the synthetic experiments. It is also possible to see now relations between the different experimental results described which were not immediately obvious to us at the time of the Discussion Meeting. ...

Author(s): Zhuang, Wei-Qin; Yi, Shan; Bill, Markus; Brisson, Vanessa L; Feng, Xueyang; Men, Yujie; Conrad, Mark E; Tang, Yinjie J; Alvarez-Cohen, Lisa | Abstract: The acetyl-CoA Wood-Ljungdahl pathway couples the folate-mediated one-carbon (C1) metabolism to either CO2 reduction or acetate oxidation via acetyl-CoA. This pathway is distributed in diverse anaerobes and is used for both energy conservation and assimilation of C1 compounds. Genome annotations for all sequenced strains of Dehalococcoides mccartyi, an important bacterium involved in the bioremediation of chlorinated solvents, reveal homologous genes encoding an incomplete Wood-Ljungdahl pathway. Because this pathway lacks key enzymes for both C1 metabolism and CO2 reduction, its cellular functions remain elusive. Here we used D. mccartyi strain 195 as a model organism to investigate the metabolic function of this pathway and its impacts on the growth of strain 195. Surprisingly, this pathway cleaves acetyl-CoA to donate a methyl group for
Cyanocobalamin (commonly known as Vitamin B12) is the most chemically complex of all the vitamins. Cyanocobalamins structure is based on a corrin ring, which, although similar to the porphyrin ring found in heme, chlorophyll, and cytochrome, has two of the pyrrole rings directly bonded. The central metal ion is Co (cobalt). Cyanocobalamin cannot be made by plants or by animals, as the only type of organisms that have the enzymes required for the synthesis of cyanocobalamin are bacteria and archaea. Higher plants do not concentrate cyanocobalamin from the soil and so are a poor source of the substance as compared with animal tissues. Cyanocobalamin is naturally found in foods including meat (especially liver and shellfish), eggs, and milk products. [HMDB]
This model describes a subfamily of the B12 binding domain (PF02607, PF02310) proteins. Members of the seed alignment include corrinoid proteins specific to four different, mutally non-homologous enzymes of the genus Methanosarcina. Three of the four cognate enzymes (trimethylamine, dimethylamine, and monomethylamine methyltransferases) all have the unusual, ribosomally incorporated amino acid pyrrolysine at the active site. All act in systems in which a methyl group is transferred to the corrinoid protein to create methylcobalamin, from which the methyl group is later transferred elsewhere ...

The discovery of Dehalococcoides mccartyi reducing perchloroethene and trichloroethene (TCE) to ethene was a key landmark for bioremediation applications at contaminated sites. D. mccartyi-containing cultures are typically grown in batch-fed reactors. On the other hand, continuous cultivation of these microorganisms has been described only at long hydraulic retention times (HRTs). We report the cultivation of a representative D. mccartyi-containing culture in continuous stirred-tank reactors (CSTRs) at a short, 3-d HRT, using TCE as the electron acceptor. We successfully operated 3-d HRT CSTRs for up to 120 days and observed sustained dechlorination of TCE at influent concentrations of 1 and 2 mM TCE to ≥97 % ethene, coupled to the production of 1012 D. mccartyi cells Lculture −1. These outcomes were possible in part by using a medium with low bicarbonate concentrations (5 mM) to minimize the excessive proliferation of microorganisms that use bicarbonate as an electron acceptor and compete with D.

Transcripts of cprA5 were not detected from strain PCP-1 cultured in the absence of CPs, but they were detected in the presence of 2,4,6-TCP or 3,5-DCP (an inducer of the meta- and para-dechlorinating activities) [40]. RT-qPCR revealed that cprA5 expression was strongly upregulated in the presence of 3,5-DCP in strain PCP-1 cultures [50]. For 2,4,6-TCP-amended cultures, the occurrence of 2,4-DCP was associated with the upregulation of cprA5 in strain PCP-1 cultures. Kim et al. [38] also observed this upregulation with the D. hafniense strain DCB-2 for rdhA3 (corresponding to cprA5) by microarrays. Upregulation of cprA5 occurred in cultures containing as little as 0.15 µM 3,5-DCP [50]. No upregulation was observed in PCP-amended cultures after 12 h (figure 4).. Significant upregulation of cprA4 was not observed in strain PCP-1 cultures amended with 2,4,6-TCP or 3,5-DCP. However, in PCP-amended cultures, we noticed a 13-fold increase in cprA4 transcript levels, which was just above the level of ...

Organohalide-respiring microorganisms can use a variety of persistent pollutants including trichloroethene (TCE) as terminal electron acceptors. The final two-electron transfer step in organohalide respiration is catalyzed by reductive dehalogenases. Here we report the x-ray crystal structure of PceA, an archetypal dehalogenase from Sulfurospirillum multivorans, as well as structures of PceA in complex with TCE and product analogs. The active site harbors a deeply buried norpseudo-B12 cofactor within a nitroreductase fold, also found in a mammalian B12 chaperone. The structures of PceA reveal how a cobalamin supports a reductive haloelimination exploiting a conserved B12-binding scaffold capped by a highly variable substrate-capturing region.. ...
Sulfur is an essential element for life and the metabolism of organic sulfur compounds plays an important role in the global sulfur cycle. Sulfur occurs in various oxidation states ranging from +6 in sulfate to -2 in sulfide (H2S). Sulfate reduction can occur in both an energy consuming assimilatory pathway and an energy producing dissimilatory pathway. The assimilatory pathway, which is found in a wide range of organisms, produces reduced sulfur compounds for the biosynthesis of S-containing amino acids and does not lead to direct excretion of sulfide. In the dissimilatory pathway, which is restricted to obligatory anaerobic bacterial and archaeal lineages, sulfate (or sulfur) is the terminal electron acceptor of the respiratory chain producing large quantities of inorganic sulfide. Both pathways start from the activation of sulfate by reaction with ATP to form adenylyl sulfate (APS). In the assimilatory pathway [MD:M00176] APS is converted to 3-phosphoadenylyl sulfate (PAPS) and then reduced ...
In our research we are developing new isotope and microscopy techniques for the investigation of biogeochemical processes. We want to understand the anaerobic microbiological processes involved in the natural attenuation of hydrocarbons and halogenated organic compounds and the new "emerging contaminants" in various ecosystems on the microbiological, biochemical and genetic level in order to quantify ecosystems services. For example, we aim to fundamentally understand key degraders such as Dehalococcoides mccartyi involved in the detoxification of organohalides and synthrophic interactions in microbial communities leading to hydrocarbon removal and the biogeochemical cycles of C, N, P, S and various metals in terrestrial systems. We analyse microbially-mediated corrosion to mitigate damage to gas and oil infrastructure. Knowledge of mineral corrosion helps us to develop bioleaching processes with which to extract metals and rare earth elements ...

The first crystal structure of the vitamin B12-binding protein from a three-component O-demethylase enzyme system is reported. During O-demethylation methyl groups are transferred from phenyl methyl ethers to tetrahydrofolate via methyl-B12 intermediates. This study describes the identification and the structural and spectroscopic analysis of a cobalamin-binding protein (termed CobDH) implicated in O-demethylation by the organohalide-respiring bacterium Desulfitobacterium hafniense DCB-2. The 1.5 Å resolution crystal structure of CobDH is presented in the cobalamin-bound state and reveals that the protein is composed of an N-terminal helix-bundle domain and a C-terminal Rossmann-fold domain, with the cobalamin coordinated in the base-off/His-on conformation similar to other cobalamin-binding domains that catalyse methyl-transfer reactions. EPR spectroscopy of CobDH confirms cobalamin binding and reveals the presence of a cob(III)alamin superoxide, indicating binding of oxygen to the fully ...
Cobalamin is a complex organic molecule containing a tetrapyrole corrin ring that is similar in structure to heme but that has a divalent cobalt atom in its center instead of an iron atom. Like heme iron, this cobalt atom binds to two ligands. One is a benzimidazole nucleotide, whereas the other can be either a methyl group (found in methylcobalamin) or an adenosyl group (found in adenosylcobalamin). Cobalamin is present in all foods of animal origin including meat, fish, and dairy products. Food cobalamin is tightly bound to proteins. Following ingestion, some cobalamin in food is transferred to human haptocorrin in saliva. As depicted in Figure 6-1, the low pH of the gastric juice facilitates efficient release and transfer of the remaining food cobalamin to haptocorrin. After transit to the duodenum, the increase in pH enables the transfer of cobalamin from haptocorrin to intrinsic factor, a transport protein secreted by gastric parietal cells. The cobalamin-intrinsic factor complex resists ...
Homologous recombination (HR) is essential for the accurate repair of DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs), potentially lethal lesions. HR takes place in the late S-G2 phase of the cell cycle and involves the generation of a single-stranded region of DNA, followed by strand invasion, formation of a Holliday junction, DNA synthesis using the intact strand as a template, branch migration and resolution. It is investigated that RecA/Rad51 family proteins play a central role. The breast cancer susceptibility protein Brca2 and the RecQ helicase BLM (Bloom syndrome mutated) are tumor suppressors that maintain genome integrity, at least in part, through HR ...

The enteric bacterium Salmonella typhimurium synthesizes cobalamin (vitamin B12) de novo only under anaerobic growth conditions. We initiated a genetic analysis of the cobalamin biosynthetic (cob) gene cluster, Stable cob::lac operon fusions were generated by insertions of a transposition-defective derivative of bacteriophage Mu d1 (Ap lac) into the cob genes. beta-Galactosidase synthesis was repressed in the presence of exogenously supplied cyanocobalamin, demonstrating that the cobalamin biosynthetic pathway was regulated by end-product repression. Transcriptional polarity studies showed that the cob genes responsible for synthesis of the corrinoid intermediate cobinamide (branch I of the pathway) were organized into a single operon. Genes for the synthesis of 5,6-dimethylbenzimidazole (branch II) and the final assembly of the complete cobalamin molecule (branch III) were organized into two or more additional operons. All of the known cob genes (in branches I, II, and III) were transcribed in ...

Serratia plymuthica WS3236 was selected for whole genome sequencing based on preliminary genetic and chemical screening indicating the presence of multiple natural product pathways. This led to the identification of a putative sodorifen biosynthetic gene cluster (BGC). The natural product sodorifen is a volatile organic compound (VOC) with an unusual polymethylated hydrocarbon bicyclic structure (C16H26) produced by selected strains of S. plymuthica. The BGC encoding sodorifen consists of four genes, two of which (sodA, sodB) are homologs of genes encoding enzymes of the non-mevalonate pathway and are thought to enhance the amounts of available farnesyl pyrophosphate (FPP), the precursor of sodorifen. Proceeding from FPP, only two enzymes are necessary to produce sodorifen: an S-adenosyl methionine dependent methyltransferase (SodC) with additional cyclisation activity and a terpene-cyclase (SodD). Previous analysis of S. plymuthica found sodorifen production titers are generally low and vary

Methanosarcina barkeri is the most fundamental species of the genus Methanosarcina, and their properties apply generally to the genus Methanosarcina. Methanosarcina barkeri can produce methane anaerobically through different metabolic pathways. M. barkeri can subsume a variety of molecules for ATP production, including methanol, acetate, methylamines, and different forms of hydrogen and carbon dioxide. Although it is a slow developer and is sensitive to change in environmental conditions, M. barkeri is able to grow in a variety of different substrates, adding to its appeal for genetic analysis. Additionally, M. barkeri is the first organism in which the amino acid pyrrolysine was found. Furthermore, two strains of M. barkeri, M. b. Fusaro and M. b. MS have been identified to possess an F-type ATPase (unusual for archaea, but common for bacteria, mitochondria and chloroplasts) along with an A-type ATPase. The fusaro strain of M. barkeri was found in mud samples taken from Lake Lago del Fusaro, a ...
