Proteomics of phanerochaete chrysosporium under heavy metal stress

Yıldırım, Volkan
In this study, time-dependent heavy metal response of the white rot fungus P. chrysosporium was analyzed by using 2D-PAGE-MS for soluble cytosolic fraction and GeLC-MS approach for membrane enriched fraction. After the 2D-PAGE-MS analysis, a total of 123 protein spots were detected as differentially expressed for Cu-exposed samples and 89 of them were identifed. Further analysis revealed that the 89 protein spots are the products of the 58 distinct ORFs. Overall, strongly up-regulated proteins included (i) Ras and NAC signalling, (ii) defense against oxidative damage and redox metabolism, (iii) translation and transcription and (iv) yet unknown function represented by putative proteins. For the cadmium-exposed cells, a total of 130 spots were detected as differentially expressed after Cd exposure for 1h, 2h, 4h and 8h in P. chrysosporium proteome. MALDI-TOF analysis of these 130 protein spots identified 89 of them. Further analysis revealed that these 89 protein spots are the products of 58 distinct ORFs. Similar to Cu exposed samples, strongly up-regulated protein groups included (i) Ras and NAC signalling, (ii) defense against oxidative damage (iii) heat shock proteins (HSPs) and chaperons, (iv) transcription and carbohydrate metabolism and (v) poorly characterized hypothetical proteins. Membrane proteins were successfully obtained by disrupting the cells with the help of lysing enzymes and enriched by employing PEG/Dextran aqueous two phase separation method. For quantification of the membrane enriched proteins, 15N based SILAC method was utilized. GeLC-MS analysis of the Cu-exposed samples resulted in identification and quantification of more than 700 proteins for the Cu exposure of 2h, 4h and 8h. Subcellular location prediction analysis revealed that 20% of the identified proteins were plasma membrane proteins. Among the identified proteins, 83 were found to be as upregulated and 55 were found to be down-regulated. In addition to these, 32 proteins were only detected in Cu exposed samples and 18 of the proteins could not be detected after Cu treatment.


Interactive assessment of lignite and bamboo-biochar for geochemical speciation, modulation and uptake of Cu and other heavy metals in the copper mine tailing
Munir, Mehr Ahmed Mujtaba; Irshad, Samina; Yousaf, Balal; Ali, Muhammad Ubaid; Dan, Chen; Abbas, Qumber; Liu, Guijian; Yang, Xiaoe (2021-07-20)
This study was designed to examine the combined effect of bamboo-biochar (BC) and water-washed lignite (LGT) at copper mine tailings (CuMT) sites on the concentration of Cu and other metals in pore water (PW), their bioavailability, and change in geochemical speciation. Rapeseed (first cropping-season) and wheat (second cropping-season) were grown for 40-days each and the influence of applied-amendments on both cropping seasons was observed and compared. A significant increase in pH, water holding capacity ...
Electrochemical synthesis of new conjugated polymers based on carbazole and furan units
Oguzturk, H. Esra; TİRKEŞ, SEHA; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (2015-08-01)
In this study, synthesis of four new monomers; 3,6-di(2-furyl)-9H-carbazole (M1), 3,6-di(2-furyl)-9-ethyl-carbazole (M2), 2,7-di(2-furyl)-9-H-carbazole (M3), 2,7-di(2-furyl)-9-(tridecan-7-yl)-9H-carbazole (M4), was achieved via Stifle cross-coupling reaction. The monomers were electrochemically polymerized, via repetitive cycling in acetonitrile-tetrabutylammonium hexafluorophosphate electrolytic medium. Optical and electrochemical properties of the monomers and their corresponding polymers were investigate...

In this study, synthesis of two multifunctional acetic acid functionalized carbazole bearing monomers; 243,6-bis(2,3-dihydrothieno [3,4-b] [1,4]dioxin-5-yl)-9H-carbazol-9-yl)acetic acid (Ml) and 3,6-dithien-2-yl-9H car bazol-9-ylaceticacid (M2) via Stille cross-coupling reaction was reported. Obtained monomers were electro-chemically polymerized in 0.1 M TBAPF(6)/DCM/ACN (5:95, v:v) solution and characterized in terms of electrochemical, spectroelectrochemical and electrochromic switching behaviors. When po...
Highly Efficient Room Temperature Synthesis of Silver-Doped Zinc Oxide (ZnO:Ag) Nanoparticles: Structural, Optical, and Photocatalytic Properties
Yildirim, Ozlem Altintas; Ünalan, Hüsnü Emrah; Durucan, Caner (Wiley, 2013-03-01)
Synthesis of silver-doped zinc oxide (ZnO:Ag) nanoparticles through precipitation method has been reported. The synthesis was conducted at room temperature and no subsequent thermal treatment was applied. ZnO nanoparticles were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), fourier transmission infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), and ultraviolet-visible (UVVis) spectroscopy. Detailed crystallographic investigation was accomplished through ...
Partial purification and characterization of neutral trehalase from commercial baker's yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Yarar, S; Hamamcı, Haluk; Bakir, U (2000-12-01)
The neutral trehalase of a commercial baker's yeast (S. cerevisiae) strain has been partially purified using ammonium sulfate fractionation and DEAE-cellulose column chromatography techniques. Trehalase was precipitated between 35-50% ammonium sulfate saturation and approximately 5-8 fold purification was achieved. The yeast cAMP-dependent protein kinase was also precipitated in the same fraction and these two proteins were separated by DEAE-cellulose column chromatography. Trehalase became totally inactive...
