ABSTRACT
Abstract  Endonuclease V (EndoV) is a metal-dependent DNA repair enzyme involved in removal of deaminated bases (e.g., deoxyuridine, deoxyinosine, and deoxyxanthosine), with pairing specificities different from the original bases. Homologs of EndoV are present in all major phyla from bacteria to humans and their function is quite well analyzed. EndoV has been combined with DNA ligase to develop an enzymatic method for mutation scanning and has been engineered to obtain variants with different substrate specificities that serve as improved tools in mutation recognition and cancer mutation scanning. However, little is known about the structure and mechanism of substrate DNA binding by EndoV. Here, we present the results of a bioinformatic analysis and a structural model of EndoV from Escherichia coli in complex with DNA. The structure was obtained by a combination of fold-recognition, comparative modeling, de novo modeling and docking methods. The modeled structure provides a convenient tool to study protein sequence-structure-function relationships in EndoV and to engineer its further variants.

    Background: A large number of genome-scale metabolic networks is now available for many organisms, mostly bacteria. Previous works on minimal gene sets, when analysing host-dependent bacteria, found small common sets of metabolic genes. When such analyses are restricted to bacteria with similar...

    The aim of this work was to study the use of silicon oxide matrices for the immobilization and preservation of recombinant-protein-producing bacteria. We immobilized Escherichia coli BL21 transformants containing different expression plasmids. One contained DNA coding for a T-cell receptor β...

    Cattle hides become contaminated with Escherichia coli O157:H7 via pathogen transmission in the feedlot, during transport, and while in the lairage environment at the processing facility, and the bacteria can be transferred to beef carcasses during processing. Several studies have shown that E....

    Despite of the high resolution structure available for the E. coli ribosome, hitherto the structure and localization of the essential ribosomal protein S1 on the 30 S subunit still remains to be elucidated. It was previously reported that protein S1 binds to the ribosome via protein-protein...

    The mutagenicity of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) was compared with that of coffee, a complex mixture which generates H2O2. An Escherichia coli strain defective in catalase activity (katG katE double mutant) and carrying a single copy mucAB (pRW144) plasmid was constructed to enhance the mutagenic...

    We show here that the Tn10/Tn5 transposon when inserted into the chromosome of strain AB1157 makes the bacteria more sensitive to and less mutable by halogen light irradiation. These effects are most probably caused by depletion of UmuD and UmuC proteins since: (i) transformation of the...

    Bacteria show remarkable adaptability in the face of antibiotic therapeutics. Resistance alleles in drug target-specific sites and general stress responses have been identified in individual end-point isolates. Less is known, however, about the population dynamics during the development of...
