Adaptations of Pseudomonas aeruginosa to the Cystic Fibrosis Lung Environment Can Include Deregulation of zwf Encoding Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase 2011 73902 Cystic fibrosis (CF) patients are highly susceptible to chronic pulmonary disease caused by mucoid Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains that overproduce the exopolysaccharide alginate. We showed here that a mutation in zwf encoding glucose-6-phosphate dehy...
Cloning and Characterization of the Pseudomonas aeruginosa zwf Gene Encoding Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase an Enzyme Important in Resistance to Methyl Viologen (Paraquat) 2011 73902 In this study we cloned the Pseudomonas aeruginosa zwf gene encoding glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PDH) an enzyme that catalyzes the NAD1- or NADP1-dependent conversion of glucose-6-phosphate to 6-phosphogluconate. The predicted zwf gene produ...
The Pseudomonas aeruginosa devB/SOL Homolog pgl Is a Member of the hex Regulon and Encodes 6-Phosphogluconolactonase 2011 73902 A cyclic version of the Entner-Doudoroff pathway is used by Pseudomonas aeruginosa to metabolize carbohydrates. Genes encoding the enzymes that catabolize intracellular glucose to pyruvate and glyceraldehyde 3- phosphate are coordinately regulated cl...
