Download Alkaliphiles: Genetic Properties and Applications of Enzymes by Koki Horikoshi PDF

By Koki Horikoshi

The pioneering paintings of Dr. Koki Horikoshi at the discovery, learn and purposes of alkaliphilic micro organism are defined right here of their entirety. The isolation, distribution and taxonomy of alkaliphilic microorganisms in addition to their telephone constitution and body structure are mentioned for a uncomplicated realizing of those entities. The molecular biology and genome sequencing of a few alkaliphilic bacterial lines also are presented.

Part II of the quantity makes a speciality of enzymes of alkaliphiles and their functions. those contain alkaline proteases, starch-degrading enzymes and diverse others. a few of these enzymes are at present in vast advertisement use as laundry detergent ingredients and in wastewater treatment.

Alkaliphiles are a comparatively contemporary box of study that might doubtless offer avenues to quite a lot of additional discoveries and functions for a brand new iteration of staff in bioscience and technology.

Breakthrough studies in alkaliphilic B. halodurans C-125 by the present author's group ultimately led to the discovery of a novel gene locus that encodes the crucial alkaliphile N a ^ / H ^ antiporter for pH homeostasis (Kudo et al. 1990; Hashimoto et al. 1994). 1 Isolation and Properties of Alkali-sensitive Mutants Two series of experiments have been conducted by the author's colleagues.

It is noted that amino acids with the D-configuration are present in the peptidoglycan, and these D- and L-amino acids occur in an akernating arrangement. Teichoic acid is a polymer consisting of phosphoric acid and ribitol or glycerol to which D-glucose and D-alanine are attached (Fig.
