Three different strains of Streptomyces aureofaciens produce the homologous ribonucleases Sa, Sa2 and Sa3. The crystal structures of ribonuclease Sa (RNase Sa) and its complexes with mononucleotides have previously been reported at high resolution. Here, the structures of two crystal forms (I and...
Single crystals have been obtained of xenobiotic reductase B (XenB), a flavoenzyme isolated and cloned from Pseudomonas fluorescens I-C. The enzyme catalyzes the NADPH-dependent elimination of nitrite from nitroglycerin with an approximately fivefold kinetic preference for the middle nitro group,...
The TonB protein located in the cell wall of Gram-negative bacteria mediates the proton motive force from the cytoplasmic membrane to specific outer membrane transporters. A C-terminal fragment of TonB from Escherichia coli consisting of amino-acid residues 147-239 (TonB-92) has been purified and...
