using aquatic fungi for pharmaceutical bioremediation: uptake of acetaminophen by mucor hiemalis does not result in an enzymatic oxidative stress response.the increasing anthropogenic pollution of aquatic environments and fresh water scarcity worldwide have prompted the development of low-cost and effective water treatment alternatives. one example of a highly released anthropogenic xenobiotics is acetaminophen (apap), which has been detected in surface waters at concentrations as high as 5 μg l(-1). to date, traditional water treatment plants were unable to remove all pharmaceutical xenobiotics and as in the case with apap, the breakdown products ...201627647241
generation of a mutant mucor hiemalis endoglycosidase that acts on core-fucosylated n-glycans.endo-β-n-acetylglucosaminidase m (endo-m), an endoglycosidase from the fungus mucor hiemalis, is a useful tool for chemoenzymatic synthesis of glycoconjugates, including glycoprotein-based therapeutics having a precisely defined glycoform, by virtue of its transglycosylation activity. although endo-m has been known to act on various n-glycans, it does not act on core-fucosylated n-glycans, which exist widely in mammalian glycoproteins, thus limiting its application. therefore, we performed site- ...201627629418

glycosynthases enable a highly efficient chemoenzymatic synthesis of n-glycoproteins carrying intact natural n-glycans.homogeneous n-glycoproteins carrying defined natural n-glycans are essential for detailed structural and functional studies. the transglycosylation activity of the endo-beta-n-acetylglucosaminidases from arthrobacter protophormiae (endo-a) and mucor hiemalis (endo-m) holds great potential for glycoprotein synthesis, but the wild-type enzymes are not practical for making glycoproteins carrying native n-glycans because of their predominant activity for product hydrolysis. in this article, we repor ...200919199609
fatty acid production characteristics of fungi with particular emphasis on gamma linolenic acid production.the fatty acid production characteristics of fungi are described. these characteristics are the relationship between the oil content of the cell and the fatty acid content of the oil. for example, for polyunsaturated fatty acid (pufa) production by mucor hiemalis ipd 51, the oil content of the cell and the gla content of the oil are coupled. for fungal production of some pufa, synthesized after the rate-limiting step in the fatty acid anabolic chain, a maximum fatty acid production model was dev ...199318613085

mutants of mucor hiemalis endo-beta-n-acetylglucosaminidase show enhanced transglycosylation and glycosynthase-like activities.endo-beta-n-acetylglucosaminidase from mucor hiemalis (endo-m), a family 85 glycoside hydrolase, acts on the beta1,4 linkage of n,n'-diacetylchitobiose moiety in the n-linked glycans of glycoproteins and catalyzes not only the hydrolysis reaction but also the transglycosylation reaction that transfers the releasing sugar chain to an acceptor other than water to form a new glycosidic linkage. the transglycosylation activity of endo-m holds a great promise for the chemo-enzymatic synthesis and gly ...200818096701
discovery and development of the epothilones : a novel class of antineoplastic drugs.the epothilones are a novel class of antineoplastic agents possessing antitubulin activity. the compounds were originally identified as secondary metabolites produced by the soil-dwelling myxobacterium sorangium cellulosum. two major compounds, epothilone a and epothilone b, were purified from the s. cellulosum strain so ce90 and their structures were identified as 16-member macrolides. initial screening with these compounds revealed a very narrow and selective antifungal activity against the zy ...200818095749
