Expression of chitinase A (chiA) gene from a local isolate of Serratia marcescens in Coleoptera-specific Bacillus thuringiensis
Okay, S.; Tefon, B. E.; ÖZKAN, MELEK; Özcengiz, Gülay (Wiley, 2008-01-01)
Aims: The present study focused on cloning and expression of chiA gene from a highly chitinolytic local isolate of Serratia marcescens in an anti-Coleopteran Bacillus thuringiensis and comparison of the characteristics of the native and recombinant ChiAs.
Production, properties and application to biocatalysis of a novel extracellular alkaline phenol oxidase from the thermophilic fungus Scytalidium thermophilum
Ögel, Zümrüt Begüm; Yuzugullu, Y.; Mete, S.; Bakir, U.; Kaptan, Y.; Sutay, D.; Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2006-08-01)
Scytalidium thermophilum produces an extracellular phenol oxidase on glucose-containing medium. Certain phenolic acids, specifically gallic acid and tannic acid, induce the expression of the enzyme. Production at 45 degrees C in batch cultures is growth-associated and is enhanced in the presence of 160 mu M CuSO4.5 H2O and 3 mM gallic acid. The highest enzyme activity is observed at pH 7.5 and 65 degrees C, on catechol. When incubated for 1 h at pH 7 and pH 8, 95% and 86% of the activity is retained. Thermo...
Production of recombinant human erythropoietin from Pichia pastoris and its structural analysis
Celik, E.; Çalık, Pınar; Halloran, S. M.; Oliver, S. G. (Wiley, 2007-12-01)
Aims: To design and investigate a recombinant expression system producing a therapeutically important glycoprotein, human erythropoietin (rHuEPO), by Pichia pastoris.
Purification, characterization, and identification of a novel bifunctional catalase-phenol oxidase from Scytalidium thermophilum
Kocabas, Didem Sutay; Bakir, Ufuk; Phillips, Simon E. V.; McPherson, Michael J.; Ögel, Zümrüt Begüm (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2008-06-01)
A novel bifunctional catalase with an additional phenol oxidase activity was isolated from a thermophilic fungus, Scytalidium thermophilum. This extracellular enzyme was purified ca. 10-fold with 46% yield and was biochemically characterized. The enzyme contains heme and has a molecular weight of 320 kDa with four 80 kDa subunits and an isoelectric point of 5.0. Catalase and phenol oxidase activities were most stable at pH 7.0. The activation energies of catalase and phenol oxidase activities of the enzyme ...
Role of the cmcH-ccaR intergenic region and ccaR overexpression in cephamycin C biosynthesis in Streptomyces clavuligerus
Kurt, Aslihan; Alvarez-Alvarez, Ruben; Liras, Paloma; Özcengiz, Gülay (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2013-07-01)
The effect of the CcaR regulatory protein on expression of the cephamycin C gene cluster is studied. Quantitative reverse transcription PCR (qRT-PCR) expression analysis of the cephamycin biosynthesis genes in the ccaR-disrupted strain, S. clavuligerus ccaR::aph, revealed that in the absence of CcaR, the lat and cmcI genes expression was reduced 2,200-and 1,087-fold compared with the wild type. Expression of pcbAB-pcbC-cefD-cefE-cmcJ-cmcH and blp was 225- to 359-fold lower, while expression of pcbR-pbpA-bla...
