Crystallization and preliminary X-ray diffraction analysis of Lin1840, a putative β-glucosidase from Listeria innocua

Lin1840 is a putative β-glucosidase that is predicted to be involved in 1,2-β-glucan metabolism since the lin1839 gene encoding a 1,2-β-oligoglucan phosphorylase and the lin1840 gene are located in the same gene cluster. Here, Lin1840 was crystallized. The crystals of Lin1840 diffracted to beyond 1.8 Å resolution. The crystal belonged to space group I121, with unit-cell parameters a = 89.75, b = 95.10, c = 215.00 Å, α = 90.00, β = 96.34, γ = 90.00°.

Abstract Microbial biomass, as an environmentally friendly resource, has drawn a lot of attention as green biomaterials for production of unique and functionalized carbon dots (CDs). However, the hydrophilicity and high porosity drive bacterial nanocellulose as a suitable matrix for CDs with antimicrobial, photoluminescent and ultraviolet blocking features. For the first time, antimicrobial CDs were synthesized by hydrothermal method from cell-free supernatant of Lactobacillus acidophilus and characterized. Antimicrobial performance of CDs was examined on Escherichia coli (Gram-negative) and Listeria monocytogenes...

Mark Gray In diagnostic microbiology, culture media are widely used for detection of pathogenic bacteria. Such media employ various ingredients to optimize detection of specific pathogens such as chromogenic enzyme substrates and selective inhibitors to reduce the presence of commensal bacteria. Despite this, it is rarely possible to inhibit the growth of all commensal bacteria, and thus pathogens can be overgrown and remain undetected. One approach to attempt to remedy this is the use of “suicide substrates” that can target specific bacterial enzymes and selectively inhibit unwanted bacterial spe...

An early exposure to lipid biochemistry in the laboratory of Konrad Bloch resulted in a fascination with the biosynthesis, structures, and functions of bacterial lipids. The discovery of plasmalogens (1-alk-1′-enyl, 2-acyl phospholipids) in anaerobic Gram-positive bacteria led to studies on the physical chemistry of these lipids and the cellular regulation of membrane lipid polymorphism in bacteria. Later studies in several laboratories showed that the formation of the alk-1-enyl ether bond involves an aerobic process in animal cells and thus is fundamentally different from that in anaerobic organisms. Our work provi...
