Serratia marcescens contains a heterodimeric HU protein like Escherichia coli and Salmonella typhimurium

, : Serratia marcescens contains a heterodimeric HU protein like Escherichia coli and Salmonella typhimurium. Journal of Bacteriology 178(1): 293-297

Homologs of the dimeric HU protein of Escherichia coli can be found in every prokaryotic organism that has been analyzed. In this work, we demonstrate that Serratia marcescens synthesizes two distinct HU subunits, like E. coli and Salmonella typhimurium, suggesting that the heterodimeric HU protein could be a common feature of enteric bacteria. A phylogenetic analysis of the HU-type proteins (HU and IHF) is presented, and a scheme for the origin of the hup genes and the onset of HU heterodimericity is suggested.

The Saccharomyces cerevisiae gene encoding xylulose kinase (XKS1) was over-expressed to an abundance of ≥ 10% intracellular protein in Escherichia coli. Instability of XKS1, not pointed out in previous reports of the enzyme, prevented isolation...

Infrared spectroscopy was used to investigate the reaction of silanes with TiO2 and Al2O3 using supercritical CO2 (Sc-CO2) as a solvent. It was found that contact of Sc-CO2 with TiO2 leads to partial removal of the water layer and to the formation...
