comparative immunological study of catalases in the genus micrococcus.double immunodiffusion tests were performed with crude extracts from various micrococcus species and antisera against catalase of micrococcus luteus ccm 169. cell-free extracts of m. lylae atcc 27566 exhibited good cross-reaction. cell-free extracts or catalase enriched preparations of m. varians reacted very weakly and no reaction has been found with preparation of m. kristinae, m. nishinomiyaensis, m. roseus and m. sedentarius. the quantitative microcomplement fixation assay also revealed a cl ...197771880
[peptidoglycan type and cell wall polysaccharide composition of cellulomonas cartalyticum and some coryneform organisms (author's transl)].cellulomonas cartalyticum was found to contain a peptidoglycan type different from that of the other species of cellulomonas. the diamino acid is lysin instead of ornithine and the interpeptide bridge consists of d-asp-d-ser. the same peptidoglycan type occurs in corynebacterium manihot, brevibacterium liticum and arthrobacter luteus. these non cellulolytic organisms are most likely not closely related with cellulomonas cartalyticum, as indicated by the very different g +c content of their dna, ...197898123
physical mapping of bk virus dna with saci, mboii, and alui restriction endonucleases.a new restriction endonuclease, saci from streptomyces achromogenes cleaves bk virus (strain mm) dna into 3 fragments, whereas mboii from moraxella bovis and alui from arthrobacter luteus give 22 and 30 fragments, respectively. all these specific dna fragments were ordered and mapped on the viral genome by two methods first, by the reciprocal digestion method using uniformly 32p-labeled dna; and second, by the partial digestion technique using the single-end 32p-labeled dna. this study, together ...1978215783

tryptophan introduction can change β-glucan binding ability of the carbohydrate-binding module of endo-1,3-β-glucanase.endo-1,3-β-glucanase from cellulosimicrobium cellulans dk-1 has a carbohydrate-binding module (cbm-dk) at the c-terminal side of a catalytic domain. out of the imperfect tandem α-, β-, and γ-repeats in cbm-dk, the α-repeat primarily contributes to β-glucan binding. this unique feature is derived from trp273 in α-repeat, whose corresponding residues in β- and γ-repeats are asp314 and gly358, respectively. in this study, we generated trp-switched mutants, w273a/d314w, d270a/w273a/d314w, w273a/g358 ...201728388361
