This article is a report on a symposium held at Experimental Biology '98 in San Francisco, California. Recent developments in site-directed mutagenesis, computer-modeling, and mechanistic analysis of cytochromes P450 and flavin-containing monooxygenases are described. A unifying theme is the elaboration of general approaches for understanding and predicting the function of individual forms of these enzymes. A related goal is the production of soluble forms of mammalian cytochromes P450 for X-ray crystallography.


The response of periphyton and submerged macrophytes to nitrogen and phosphorus loading in shallow warm lakes: a mesocosm experiment
Özkan, Korhan; Johansson, Liselotte S.; Beklioğlu, Meryem (2010-02-01)
1. Recent experimental and field studies on temperate shallow lakes indicate that nitrogen may play a greater role in their functioning than previously thought. Several studies document that abundance and richness of submerged macrophytes, both central in shallow lake ecology, may decrease with increasing nitrogen loading, especially at high phosphorus levels. However, the role of nitrogen in warm lakes with fluctuating water regimes remains to be described in detail.
Purification and characterization of Hexokinase isoenzymes from Rhizopus oryzae
Dedeoğlu, Didem; Hamamcı, Haluk; Department of Biotechnology (2007)
Glycolysis is the central metabolic pathway for living organisms. Its regulation is important for the yield of the end products which are industrially important. These end products, like lactic acid produced by Rhizopus oryzae, are industrially important. Rhizopus oryzae is a filamentous fungus producing lactic acid and ethanol. The lactic acid yield of R. oryzae is low (70 %) compared to that of lactic acid bacteria (95 %) still it is noteworthy because R. oryzae produces only the L (+) form of lactic acid...
Purification and characterization of cytoplasmic and proteasome associated chymotrypsin-like proteases from Thermoplasma volcanium
Özdemir, F. İnci; Kocabıyık, Semra; Department of Biology (2003)
In this study, two novel cytoplasmic serine proteases were isolated and characterized from thermophilic archaea Thermoplasma volcanium. The first protease was purified by ion exchange and affinity chromatographies and identified as a chymotrypsin-like serine protease mainly based on its substrate profile and inhibition pattern. The presence of protease activity was analyzed by gelatin zymography which was detected as a single band (35 kDa). Optimum temperature was found to be 60oC for azocasein hydrolysis a...
Detection and characterization of plant genes involved in various biotic and abiotic stress conditions using ddrt-pcr and isolation of interacting proteins
Ünver, Turgay; Akkaya, Mahinur S.; Department of Biotechnology (2008)
The main objective of this thesis dissertation is functionally characterizing the genes involved in biotic and abiotic stresses of plants at molecular level. Previously, upon pathogen attack Rad6 gene expression was found to be changed in wheat and barley plants. To functionally characterize the Rad6 gene, VIGS (Virus induced gene silencing) system was used. HR (Hypersensitive response) like symptoms was detected in every silenced barley and wheat plants. To figure out, transcriptomes and proteomes of Rad6 ...
Identification of functionally orthologous protein groups in different species based on protein network alignment
Yaveroğlu, Ömer Nebil; Can, Tolga; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
In this study, an algorithm named ClustOrth is proposed for determining and matching functionally orthologous protein clusters in different species. The algorithm requires protein interaction networks of the organisms to be compared and GO terms of the proteins in these interaction networks as prior information. After determining the functionally related protein groups using the Repeated Random Walks algorithm, the method maps the identified protein groups according to the similarity metric defined. In orde...
