N2 - α/β-Galactoside α2,3-sialyltransferase produced by Photobacterium phosphoreum JT-ISH-467 is a unique enzyme that catalyzes the transfer of N-acetylneuraminic acid residue from cytidine monophosphate N-acetylneuraminic acid to acceptor carbohydrate groups. The enzyme recognizes both mono- and di-saccharides as acceptor substrates, and can transfer Neu5Ac to both α-galactoside and β-galactoside, efficiently. To elucidate the structural basis for the broad acceptor substrate specificity, we determined the crystal structure of the α2,3-sialyltransferase in complex with CMP. The overall structure belongs to the ...
Continuous increase in the number and the variety of anthropogenic sources of electromagnetic radiation causes a high interest in studying the effects ultrahigh frequency on living organisms. In the present research inflence of UHF EMR (15 W, 2.45 GHz) for 5 and 15 min on morphological and genetic peculiarities of Photobacterium phosphoreum colonies was studied. It has been revealed that UHF EMR affected colony growth parameters, induced transcriptional activity of luciferase encoding gene expression and that the effect was depended on exposure duration. The subsequent cultivation of bacteria during a two week period after treatment showed maintaining of the increased luxb mRNA level in irradiated colonies. Opposite bacterial stress responses were detected to UHF EMR and elevated temperature treatments that assumed UHF EMR comprised of not only thermal but specifi component of non-thermal nature..

In Prokaryotes In microbes responding to high pressure environments, genes that have increased expression might include cold- and heat-shock and other stress response proteins[7], barostable polymerases[8], or membrane proteins[9, 10]. Down-regulated genes might include nutrient transporters[11, 12]. In other cases, porin proteins which provide ion diffusion pathways are opened in response to osmotic stress across the membrane. The first high pressure induced gene in bacteria was found in 1989[9] in a deep-ocean bacterium, Photobacterium profundum strain SS9. The gene encodes for OmpH, a large transmembrane protein which is involved in nutrient uptake. Later work found that the operon also contained two outer membrane proteins, OmpL[12] (induced at lower pressures ~1atm) and OmpI[10] (induced at much higher pressures ~400atm). Interestingly, all of these gene products encode for channel proteins, a subclass of which are the other main mechanosensing proteins. It has also been found that the lac ...

A muscle food, including meat, poultry, and seafood, is described as spoiled when it is considered unacceptable by consumers based on its sensory characteristics. Economic losses as well as the food wasted and loss of consumer confidence due to spoilage, however, are of major significance. Among bacteria, genera in the family Enterobacteriaceae, Photobacterium phosphoreum, Shewanella (Alteromonas) putrefaciens, Brochothrix thermosphacta, Pseudomonas spp., Aeromonas spp., and lactic acid bacteria have been found to be major contributors to muscle food spoilage, depending on the product type and the conditions surrounding the product. Chemical (chlorine, organic acids, inorganic phosphates, proteins, oxidizers, etc.) or physical (knife-trimming, cold or hot water, vacuum, and/or steam) agents and combinations of two or more agents simultaneously or in sequence are applied as carcass decontamination/sanitization treatments in the United States.

1IBF: Single mutations at the subunit interface modulate copper reactivity in Photobacterium leiognathi Cu,Zn superoxide dismutase.
In recent years it has become clear that the production of N-acyl homoserine lactones (N-AHLs) is widespread in Gram-negative bacteria. These molecules act as diffusible chemical communication signals (bacterial pheromones) which regulate diverse physiological processes including bioluminescence, antibiotic production, piasmid conjugal transfer and synthesis of exoenzyme virulence factors in plant and animal pathogens. The paradigm for N-AHL production is in the bioluminescence (lux) phenotype of Photobacterium fischeri (formerly classified as Vibrio fischeri) where the signalling molecule N-(3-oxohexanoyl)-L-homoserine lactone (OHHL) is synthesized by the action of the Luxl protein. OHHL is thought to bind to the LuxR protein, allowing it to act as a positive transcriptional activator in an autoinduction process that physiologically couples cell density (and growth phase) to the expression of the bioluminescence genes. Based on the growing information on Luxl and LuxR homologues in other ...

I initially wanted this chapter to be more Royal Navy of the 1800s. So with th...
After comparing the genomes of two marine bugs, biologists have devised a tool for investigating one of Earths great mysteries: the foundation of ocean life. The two bacterial species, called Sphingopyxis alaskensis and Photobacterium angustum, flourish in the ocean equivalents of jungle and desert. Their genetic overlap and divergence gives researchers a model for interpreting \[…\]

Why would someone want to add a fragment of dead coral to a liquid culture of bioluminescent bacteria. I thought why not. This is what happened.
E. Carr Everbach Inder R. S. Makin Amy Cheng Vollmer Dept. of Eng. and Biol., Swarthmore College, Swarthmore, PA 19081-1397 The interaction of intense ultrasound with bacteria has implications for improving fundamental understanding in biology and bioacoustics, as well as providing possible applications in water purification and medicine. An investigation will be presented of the effects of acoustic cavitation on E.coli bacteria that have been genetically engineered to emit visible light when subjected to physical or chemical stress. Genetic cloning techniques allow the placement of the lux gene, derived from luminescent marine microorganisms, at specific locations in bacterial DNA. Each placement location yields light production in proportion to the repair mechanism employed by the bacteria in response to specific kinds of stress (oxidative damage, DNA damage, membrane damage, protein damage, thermal damage, etc.). A 20-MHz passive acoustic detector [abstract, Huertas et al ...
In V. fischeri five genes (LuxCDABE) have been identified as active in the emission of visible light, and two genes (LuxR and LuxI) are involved in regulating the operon. Several external and intrinsic factors appear to induce and inhibit the transcription of this gene set. (Meighen, 1991) [biology of bacterial bioluminescence, Meighen, 1991] - a very complete article on the nature of bioluminescence in this system The lux operon has a known gene sequence of luxCDAB(F)E, lux A and lux B code for the components of luciferase lux CDE codes for a fatty acid reductase complex that makes the fatty acids necessary for the luciferase mechanism: Lux C codes for the enzyme acyl-reductase lux D codes for acyl-transferase lux E makes the proteins needed for the enzyme acyl-protein synthetase. Luciferase produces blue/green light through the oxidation of reduced flavin mononucleotide and a long chain aldehyde by diatomic oxygen.

The Comme des Garcons Luxe series is one of those things I was hoping to be indifferent to.

Bioluminescent bacteria are light-producing bacteria that are predominantly present in sea water, marine sediments, the surface of decomposing fish and in the gut of marine animals. While not as common, bacterial bioluminescence is also found in terrestrial and freshwater bacteria. These bacteria may be free living (such as Vibrio harveyi) or in symbiosis with animals such as the Hawaiian Bobtail squid (Aliivibrio fischeri) or terrestrial nematodes (Photorhabdus luminescens). The host organisms provide these bacteria a safe home and sufficient nutrition. In exchange, the hosts use the light produced by the bacteria for camouflage, prey and/or mate attraction. Bioluminescent bacteria have evolved symbiotic relationships with other organisms in which both participants benefit close to equally. Another possible reason bacteria use luminescence reaction is for quorum sensing, an ability to regulate gene expression in response to bacterial cell density. Records of bioluminescent bacteria existed for ...
