specificity of guanylic rnases to polynucleotide substrates.kinetic parameters kcat and km were measured for cleavage of poly i, poly a, poly u, poly c and poly i poly c by guanyl-specific rnases sa, pb1 and t1 and compared with that of guanyl-preferential rnase bi. catalytic efficiencies of the investigated enzymes to polynucleotide substrates vary considerably. the structural basis for specificity of these rnases is discussed. a hypothesis is suggested that ser-56 plays an important role in recognition of poly a by rnase bi.19911904722
affinity labeling of a subsite of taka-amylase a by the fluorescent reagent o-phthalaldehyde.a cross-linked modification of lys residue located at the subsite of the enzyme active site of taka-amylase a was attained by the use of the fluorescent reagent of o-phthalaldehyde (opa). the fluorescence and uv absorption at 337 nm derived from the isoindole ring, which was produced by cross-linking through the epsilon-amino group of lys and the thiol group of the cys residue, provided the evidence for the opa-mediated inactivation of taka-amylase a. kinetic analysis showed that 1 mol of opa pe ...19911910319

in defence of aldehyde-osmium fixation and critical-point drying for characterization of seed-storage fungi by scanning electron microscopy.low-temperature scanning electron microscopy cannot be used as a general approach when resolution of definitive surface features is required for fungal characterization, because of the production of a pervading exudate by some of the species, strains or varieties. as the resolution of the light microscope is obviously limiting, scanning electron microscopy remains the best microscopical mode. results are presented for four species within the aspergillus flavus group which indicate that minimal ( ...19911960714

replacement of a cis proline simplifies the mechanism of ribonuclease t1 folding.the refolding of ribonuclease t1 is dominated by two major slow kinetic phases that show properties of proline isomerization reactions. we report here that the molecular origin of one of these processes is the trans----cis isomerization of the ser54-pro55 peptide bond, which is cis in the native protein but predominantly trans in unfolded ribonuclease t1. this is shown by a comparison of the wild type and a designed mutant protein where ser54 and pro55 were replaced by gly54 and asn55, respectiv ...19902119802

studies on the accessibility of nascent non-helical peptide chains on the ribosome.the accessibility of nascent polypeptides with special structural elements to the ribosome was investigated. poly(c), poly(c, u) and poly(c, a) mrnas were translated by e. coli ribosomes in vitro. the resulting peptides which were rich in prolines, remained on the ribosomal particles or were released after addition of puromycin. a protease from aspergillus oryzae hydrolyzed the released peptides rapidly, whereas the degradation of the unreleased ones was only slightly affected. this result shows ...19892699792
three alpha-amylase genes of aspergillus oryzae exhibit identical intron-exon organization.we have cloned three genes (amy1, amy2 and amy3) encoding alpha-amylase in the filamentous fungus aspergillus oryzae. the established overall sequences have a very high degree of homology, showing divergences mainly in the 3'-untranslated regions. the positions and the sequences of the eight introns were found to be absolutely identical in the three genes. the sequence analysis of the 5'-regions revealed presumptive tata, caat and gc boxes. primer extension analysis was performed to determine th ...19892785629
aspergillus oryzae has two nearly identical taka-amylase genes, each containing eight introns.cdna and genomic dna for two nearly identical genes, amyi and amyii, coding for the enzyme taka-amylase a (ta-a) of the fungus aspergillus oryzae have been cloned and characterized. these genes are apparently unlinked, differing by only 3 nucleotides (nt) out of the 2720 nt that span the coding regions. the 617-nt 5'-flanking regions differ only at nt -372 (t or a) from the putative atg start codon and contain four sets of short, inverted repeats (ir) upstream from the putative tataaa box at nt ...19892789162

simple method for screening aflatoxin-producing molds by uv photography.uv absorption by aflatoxins was monitored in gy agar medium by uv photography. in the uv photographs, aflatoxin-producing molds were identified as gray or black colonies, whereas aflatoxin-nonproducing molds appeared as white colonies. by cellophane transplantation experiments and silica gel thin-layer chromatography, the products absorbing uv light substantially were found to be mainly aflatoxins b1 and g1 excreted from the mold mycelium into the agar medium. uv absorption did not occur when th ...19873105453
effective reduction of lactose maldigestion in preschool children by direct addition of beta-galactosidases to milk at mealtime.we examined the efficiency of two beta-galactosidase preparations--one derived from the yeast, kluyveromyces lactis (lactaid), the other derived from the fungus, aspergillus oryzae (takamine)--to assist the in vivo digestion of lactose consumed by healthy guatemalan preschool children. milk prehydrolyzed by in vitro incubation with enzymes was used as the standard of reference, and the degree of incomplete digestion of lactose from 240 ml of milk was determined using the hydrogen breath test. in ...19873106927
