Trehalose is a stable disaccharide that consists of two glucose units linked primarily by an α,α-(1 → 1)-linkage, and it has been found in a wide variety of organisms. In these organisms, trehalose functions not only as a source of carbon energy but also as a protector against various stress conditions. In addition, this disaccharide is attractive for use in a wide range of applications due to its bioactivities. In trehalose metabolism, direct trehalose-hydrolyzing enzymes are known as trehalase...

O-acetylation of alginate produced by the opportunistic human pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa significantly contributes to its pathogenesis. Three proteins, AlgI, AlgJ and AlgF have been implicated to form a complex and act together with AlgX for O-acetylation of alginate. AlgI was proposed to transfer the acetyl group across the cytoplasmic membrane, while periplasmic AlgJ was hypothesised to transfer the acetyl group to AlgX that acetylates alginate. To elucidate the proposed O-acetylation mul...

Genome-derived noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs), including microRNAs (miRNAs), small interfering RNAs (siRNAs), and long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs), play an essential role in the control of target gene expression underlying various cellular processes, and dysregulation of ncRNAs is involved in the pathogenesis and progression of various diseases in virtually all species including humans. Understanding ncRNA biology has opened new avenues to develop novel RNA-based therapeutics. Presently, ncRNA research an...

Multiple heavy metal–resistant bacterium, Micrococcus luteus strain AS2, was isolated from industrial waste water of District Sheikhupura, Pakistan. The isolated bacterium showed minimum inhibitory concentrations of 55 and 275 mM against arsenite and arsenate. The bacterial strain also showed resistance against other heavy metal ions, i.e., lead, cadmium, chromium, mercury, nickel, and zinc, apart from arsenic. The optimum temperature and pH were 37 °C and 7, respectively. The antioxidant enzyme...

In the published version, the y-axis data of Fig. 3c was incorrectly inserted (OD600 instead of D-xylonate (g L-1) and the x-axes of Figs. 3b, 3d, 3e and 3f ended at 48 h instead of 72 h. See the correct Fig. 3 below.

Zinc uptake regulator (Zur) is a transcriptional regulator that represses zinc acquisition genes under high zinc conditions. The aim of this study was to identify and investigate the role of Zur-binding motifs (Zur boxes) in the differential regulation of Zur target genes, including the zinT, znuA, znuCB-zur operon, the troCBA operon, and yciC, in Agrobacterium tumefaciens. DNase I footprinting and gel shift assays were performed, confirming that Zur directly binds to 18-bp inverted repeat motif...

PcMulGH9, a novel glycoside hydrolase family 9 (GH9) from Paenibacillus curdlanolyticus B-6, was successfully expressed in Escherichia coli. It is composed of a catalytic domain of GH9, two domains of carbohydrate-binding module family 3 (CBM3) and two domains of fibronectin type 3 (Fn3). The PcMulGH9 enzyme showed broad activity towards the β-1,4 glycosidic linkages of cellulose, mannan and xylan, including cellulose and xylan contained in lignocellulosic biomass, which is rarely found in GH9. ...
