The extremely halophilic archaeon Natrialba aegyptiaca secretes the L-homo type of poly-g-glutamate (PGA) as an extremolyte. We examined the enzymes involved in glutamate metabolism and verified the presence of L-glutamate dehydrogenases, L-aspartate aminotransferase, and L-glutamate synthase. However, neither glutamate racemase nor D-amino acid aminotransferase activity was detected, suggesting the absence of sources of D-glutamate. In contrast, D-glutamate-rich PGA producers mostly possess such intracellular sources of D-glutamate. The results of our present study indicate that the D-glutamate-anabolic enzyme
AIM: To analyze 1-year liver injury burden in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients. METHODS: During a 6-mo inclusion period, consecutive IBD cases having a control visit at IBD center were included. Basic demographics, IBD phenotype and IBD treatment were recorded on entry. Aminotransferase (AT) activities of ALT, AST, ALP and gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGT) were measured at baseline, 3 mo prior to study entry and prospectively every 3 mo for 1 year. Liver injury patterns were predefined as: Grade 1 in ALT 1-3 × upper limit of normal (ULN), grade 2 in ALT , 3 × ULN, hepatocellular injury in ALT , 2 × ULN, cholestatic injury in simultaneous GGT and ALP elevation , ULN ...
EXPRESSION OF BRANCHED CHAIN AMINO ACID TRANSAMINASE 1 (BCAT1) IS INCREASED IN NAFLD FIBROSIS AND CIRRHOSIS AND HEPATOCELLULAR CARCINOMA
The transamination of aromatic l-amino acids (5-hydroxytryptophan, tryptophan, tyrosine, phenylalanine and kynurenine) was shown to be catalysed by enzyme preparations from rat small intestine. On the basis of the partial purification and characterization of these aromatic amino acid transaminases, it is suggested that rat small intestine contains several kinds of aromatic amino acid transaminases.. ...

We observed a generalized anoxic induction of transcripts encoding enzymes of glycolysis. Several glycolytic genes were induced by anoxia (Fig. 4A). Genes involved in alcoholic fermentation such as ADH (At1g77120), PDC1 (At4g33070), and PDC2 (At5g54960) showed a dramatic increase in expression, in agreement with Klok et al. (2002). A strong induction of two aminotransferases was also observed (see Supplemental Table II, a and b). The fermentative production of ethanol by the concerted action of pyruvate decarboxylases and alcohol dehydrogenase may be unable to consume the pyruvate accumulating as a consequence of the inactivity of the Krebs cycle. The induction of an Ala aminotransferase (At1g17290) gene and accumulation of the encoded enzyme may allow the conversion of the excess pyruvate to Ala (see Supplemental Table II, a and b). The production of Ala is indeed relevant in rice roots, reaching up to 1.2% of the dry weight after 24 h under anoxia (Reggiani and Bertani, 2003). The cytosolic ...
DAO genes are important for growth on D-amino acids.(A) Phenotype of R265 daoΔ mutants. (B) CnDAO1 and CnDAO3 play different roles for growth on D-amino acids.
d-Glutamate cyclase (DGLUCY) is a unique enzyme that reversibly converts free d-glutamate to 5-oxo-d-proline and H2O. Mammalian DGLUCY is highly expressed in the mitochondrial matrix in the heart, and its downregulation disrupts d-glutamate and/or 5-oxo-d-proline levels, contributing to the onset and/or exacerbation of heart failure. However, detailed characterisation of DGLUCY has not yet been pe ...

It is generally agreed that many proteins are structurally dynamic; sampling many conformations while in solution and also adopting new conformations upon complexation with a ligand. Many of these flexible enzymes are of biological interest, and hindering their function via binding of competitive inhibitors would open up valuable therapeutic avenues. Unfortunately due to the conformation-dependent nature of ligand binding, the act of discovering a new small molecule that will bind these particular proteins is analogous to aiming at a moving target. The following work focuses on one particular enzyme, glutamate racemase. Glutamate racemase is an essential and non-redundant enzyme in all species of bacteria, and inhibition of this enzyme results in cell wall degradation, followed by imminent cell death. Inhibitors of glutamate racemase could act as novel antibiotics against a target to which there are no current antibiotics, and thus no known resistance. My studies focus on three interdependent ...
Proteins are the most abundant biological cellular macromolcules and structurally characterized by being formed from a group of 20 precursor molecules, known as amino acids. The grouping and combination of these amino acids enable peptides, oligopeptides and polypetides to be formed, to construct larger structures, which are strictly speaking proteins.. Although up until now it was accepted that the majority of amino acids were in the form of L-stereoisomers, it has recently been demonstrated that D-aminoacids are also present in animals and human beings in high concentrations, and they perform specific biological functions. Two D-amino acids, namely D-serine and D-aspartate, are found in considerable concentrations in the central nervous system. D-serine has shown that it is relevant to the physiological activation of the NMDA (NMDAR) receptor, and all disorders associated with a modified function of the NMDAR, such as schizophrenia, ischemia, epilepsy and neurodegenerative disorders. On the ...

Catalyzes the oxidative deamination of D-amino acids. Has broad substrate specificity; is mostly active on D-alanine, and to a lesser extent, on several other D-amino acids such as D-methionine, D-serine and D-proline, but not on L-alanine. Participates in the utilization of L-alanine and D-alanine as the sole source of carbon, nitrogen and energy for growth. Is also able to oxidize D-amino acid analogs such as 3,4-dehydro-D-proline, D-2-aminobutyrate, D-norvaline, D-norleucine, cis-4-hydroxy-D-proline, and DL-ethionine.
Recently, substantial levels of acidic d-amino acids, such as d-aspartate and d-glutamate, have been identified in many organisms, from bacteria to mammals
Comparative 16S rRNA (rDNA) sequence analyses performed on the thermophilic Bacillus species Bacillus acidocaldarius, Bacillus acidoterrestris, and Bacillus cycloheptanicus revealed that these organisms are sufficiently different from the traditional Bacillus species to warrant reclassification in a new genus, Alicyclobacillus gen. nov. An analysis of 16S rRNA sequences established that these three thermoacidophiles cluster in a group that differs markedly from both the obligately thermophilic organism Bacillus stearother-mophilus and the facultatively thermophilic organism Bacillus coagulans, as well as many other common mesophilic and thermophilic Bacillus species. The thermoacidophilic Bacillus species B. acidocaldarius, B. acidoterrestris, and B. cycloheptanicus also are unique in that they possess ω-alicylic fatty acid as the major natural membranous lipid component, which is a rare phenotype that has not been found in any other Bacillus species characterized to date. This phenotype, along with
Life on the earth uses exclusively L-amino acids for molecular architecture of proteins. D-amino acids are chiral form of L-amino acids and are known to function in non-ribosomal physiology. Although all proteinogenic amino acids except for glycine have chiral forms, life appears to choose one of the enantiomers in biological processes. Among all domains of life, bacteria have the largest capacity to utilize D-amino acids. Bacteria have been described to synthesize more than 10 kinds of D-amino acids, most commonly D-alanine and D-glutamate for crosslinking within the peptidoglycan cell wall. But, cell walls found in other life, such as archaea or plants/fungi in eukaryote, are not composed with D-amino acids. Furthermore, extracellular D-amino acids released from bacteria regulate remodeling of bacterial cell wall and are thought to function in communication among bacteria to accommodate changing environment. Besides structural function in bacterial cell wall, D-amino acids have been associated to
Recent research on the flavoenzyme D-amino acid oxidase from Rhodotorula gracilis (RgDAAO) has revealed new, intriguing properties of this catalyst and offers novel biotechnological applications. Among them, the reaction of RgDAAO has been exploited in the analytical determination of the D-amino acid content in biological samples. However, because the enzyme does not oxidize acidic D-amino acids, it cannot be used to detect the total amount of D-amino acids. We now present the results obtained using a random mutagenesis approach to produce RgDAAO mutants with a broader substrate specificity. The libraries of RgDAAO mutants were generated by error-prone PCR, expressed in BL21(DE3)pLysS Escherichia coli cells and screened for their ability to oxidize different substrates by means of an activity assay. Five random mutants that have a modified substrate specificity, more useful for the analytical determination of the entire content of D-amino acids than wild-type RgDAAO, have been isolated. With ...

D-AAs represent a class of signaling molecules which are largely understudied. The discovery and characterization of D-AAs in living systems necessitates the development, improvement, and application of an assortment of analytical methods. Since D-AAs were initially measured in animals, numerous advances in D-AA analysis have been made- including the development of capillary electrophoresis approaches that are sensitive enough to target subcellular samples, liquid chromatography approaches that simultaneously target many D-AAs, and imaging approaches that can detect these molecules. These approaches, when paired with appropriate experimental design and established animal models, have led to a variety of discoveries (including the characterization of novel enzymes, the establishment of two D-AAs as "classical" transmitters, and a better understanding of many D-AAs in the nervous and endocrine systems).. Best practices for D-AA research, with special emphasis on D-serine, have been recently ...

Occult bacterial infections represent a worldwide health problem. Differentiating active bacterial infection from sterile inflammation can be difficult using current imaging tools. Present clinically viable methodologies either detect morphologic changes (CT/ MR), recruitment of immune cells ((111)In-WBC SPECT), or enhanced glycolytic flux seen in inflammatory cells ((18)F-FDG PET). However, these strategies are often inadequate to detect bacterial infection and are not specific for living bacteria. Recent approaches have taken advantage of key metabolic differences between prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms, allowing easier distinction between bacteria and their host. In this report, we exploited one key difference, bacterial cell wall biosynthesis, to detect living bacteria using a positron-labeled D-amino acid. After screening several (14)C D-amino acids for their incorporation into E. coli in culture, we identified D-methionine as a probe with outstanding radiopharmaceutical potential. ...

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) are non-invasive imaging modalities that can potentially image plaque composition in-vivo in human carotid arteries. MRI image acquisition at various weightings enables visualisation of plaque composition. Calcification, haemorrhage, fibrous cap and lipid rich necrotic cores can readily be distinguished, providing information on plaque vulnerability. MRS gives a spectrum of resonances, affording detection of specific chemical components through their inherent frequency shift relative to water (5). In image guided MRS, an MR image can be utilized to image and localize a plaque. Proton spectra can then be collected from these plaques, such that the specific proton resonances of lipid components in a mobile state, including cholesterol ester (CE), can be identified (6 ...

Host defense peptides (HDPs) are positively-charged and amphipathic components of the innate immune system that have demonstrated great potential to become the next generation of broad spectrum therapeutic agents effective against a vast array of pathogens and tumor. As such, many approaches have been taken to improve the therapeutic efficacy of HDPs. Amongst these methods, the incorporation of d-amino acids (d-AA) is an approach that has demonstrated consistent success in improving HDPs. Although, virtually all HDP review articles briefly mentioned about the role of d-AA, however it is rather surprising that no systematic review specifically dedicated to this topic exists. Given the impact that d-AA incorporation has on HDPs, this review aims to fill that void with a systematic discussion of the impact of d-AA on HDPs.. ...
