Three-dimensional structures have been elucidated for very few integral membrane proteins. Computer methods can be used as guides for estimation of solute transport protein structure, function, biogenesis, and evolution. In this paper the application of currently available computer programs to over a dozen distinct families of transport proteins is reviewed. The reliability of sequence-based topological and localization analyses and the importance of sequence and residue conservation to structur...

As a step towards studying representative members of the two-component family of signal transduction proteins, we have cloned genes encoding a histidine protein kinase and a response regulator from the hyperthermophilic bacterium Thermotoga maritima. The genes have been designated HpkA and drrA, respectively. The deduced HpkA sequence contains all five characteristic histidine protein kinase motifs with the same relative order and spacing found in the mesophilic bacterial proteins. A hydropathy ...

The genome of the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi B31, the aetiologic agent of Lyme disease, contains a linear chromosome of 910,725 base pairs and at least 17 linear and circular plasmids with a combined size of more than 533,000 base pairs. The chromosome contains 853 genes encoding a basic set of proteins for DNA replication, transcription, translation, solute transport and energy metabolism, but, like Mycoplasma genitalium, it contains no genes for cellular biosynthetic reactions. Because B. ...

Abstract The pathway for binding, processing and transport of transforming DNA into competent cells of Bacillus subtilis is described. The known proteins involved in mediating these processes are reviewed in turn, including several that resemble proteins required for type-IV pilus assembly and function, and those involved in protein secretion. Based on the phenotypes of null mutations in the cognate genes for these proteins, on similarities to other proteins and on membrane localization and topo...

Analyses of the genomes of three prokaryotes, Escherichia coli, Bacillus subtilis, and Haemophilus injluenzae, revealed a new type of genomic compartmentalization of base frequencies. There was a departure from intrastrand equifrequency between A and T or between C and G, showing that the substitution patterns of the two strands of DNA were asymmetric. The positions of the boundaries between these compartments were found to coincide with the origin and terminus of chromosome replication, and the...

A large number of bioinformatics methods have been developed in recent years for detecting gene transfers between distantly related or unrelated organisms. These have been mainly classified as parametric and phylogenetic methods. While the former methods have been frequently invoked for detecting recent gene transfers, detection of ancient gene transfers have relied upon phylogenetic methods. Numerous evidences emerging from the applications of these methods have firmly established interspecies ...

Diese Arbeit befasst sich mit der Vorhersage von Genen, von Genexpressionsraten und der Detektion und Charakterisierung von horizontal transferierten Genregionen in mikrobiellen Genomen. Diese Themen sind sowohl fur die Annotation als auch fur weiterfuhrende, experimentelle Analysen eines Organismus von Bedeutung. Teile der Arbeit wurden bereits in verschiedenen Fachzeitschriften veroffentlicht. Der Inhalt von Kapitel 1 wird in diesem Jahr in Bioinformatics erscheinen, Kapitel 3 wurde in der ers...

Simonetta Gribaldo, Patrick ForterreTwo complementary approaches can be applied to try to understand how lifeappeared on our planet. The first, illustrated by Miller’s seminal experiment,consists in trying to reproduce – either theoretically or/and practically – theconditions of primitive Earth, and to figure out which possible scenarios mighthave led from such conditions to the apparition of life as we know it today.This is the type of approach frequently adopted by chemists and physicists.

A cellulase from the thermophile, Thermotoga maritima, hydrolyzed oligosaccharide substrates by an exoglucanase mode of action but acted as an endoglucanase to rapidly reduce the viscosity of the soluble polysaccharides carboxymethylcellulose and barley β-glucan. The Vmax for hydrolysis of the substrate, p-nitrophenyl β-d-cellobioside, was 42 μmol min−1 (mg protein)−1, while that for barley β-glucan was 637. The enzyme had little activity on crystalline cellulose.

Thermotoga neapolitana is a marine hyperthermophilic bacterium that ferments various sugars to hydrogen and acetate. In this study, cull peaches were used as carbon source in a defined medium for biohydrogen production and produced 18 % to 25% hydrogen in the headspace. The hydrogen production varied from 6.4-7.7 mmol H2/g peach (dry weight). The hydrogen concentration did not increase after 20 hours of incubation. The final pH decreased to 4.9 after 20 hours. Unautoclaved peach medium can be us...
