a A convergent and modular synthesis of dienyl and diynyl isobutylamide natural products from echinacea and spilanthes herbal medicines 2007 2764 ""Echinacea" and "Spilanthes" are popular over-the-counter herbal supplements derived from raw tissue or tissue extracts from plants such as Echinacea purpurea and Spilanthes acmella, respectively. Several chemical constituents have been identified a...
Overexpression, purification, and characterization of AcpK, PksG, and MmgA from Bacillus subtilis strain 168 2007 1052 AcpK, Sfp, PksG, and MmgA were successfully overexpressed and purified from B. subtilis 168, and a donated overexpression vector. PPT reactions with Sfp and AcpK were successfully performed. Biochemical characterization of PksG was carried out and de...
Overexpression, Purification, and Characterization of MmgB and MmgC from Bacillus subtilis Strain 168. 2008 1099 For years, developmental biology has been in search of an understanding as to how an organism undergoes cellular differentiation to produce distinct cell types. Bacillus subtilis is a bacterial organism that undergoes cellular differentiation during ...
Overexpression, purification, and characterization of MmgD from Bacillus subtilis strain 168. 2009 370 Bacillus subtilis, a rod shaped gram-positive bacterium, is highly studied because of its capability of forming endospores when there is an inadequate supply of nutrients. Despite the lack of nutrients in the environment, this microorganism has to be...
Characterization of biosynthetic and catabolic pathways of Bacillus subtilis strain 168. 2009 1061 Bacillus subtilis has long been a model bacterium for understanding biological mechanisms, such as fatty acid catabolism and polyketide biosynthesis. Our interest in the latter was centered on the polyketide synthase (PKS) mechanism responsible for ß...
Analysis of a possible multienzyme complex encoded by mother cell metabolic gene (mmg) operon of Bacillus subtilis strain 168. 2010 350 Bacillus subtilis is a rod shaped, aerobic, endospore forming gram-positive bacterium. B. subtilis is used as a model organism to study cell differentiation during sporulation in prokaryotes. When there is inadequate supply of carbon resources, B. su...
Characterization of the biochemical activity of the open reading frame "YqiQ" of Bacillus subiltilis 2011 586 The goal of this research is to provide a greater chemical understanding of the mechanisms by which Bacillus subtilis transforms itself into a spore during times of nutrient deprivation. The area of interest of this study lies in the mother cell meta...
The characterization of mmgE from Bacillus subtilis 2012 519 Bacillus subtilis is a rod shaped gram-positive bacterium that has been extensively studied for decades. The scientific interest lies, in large part, to its use as a model organism for the study of sporulation, which is a simple form of cell differen...
