Seo, Sung-Yum ;
The Korean Journal of Microbiology, volume 30, issue 4, 1992, Pages 269~277
Several insertion mutants of Escherichia coli in the ant gene, coding for
antiport activity, showed littel, if any, reduction in the antiport activity.
dependent transport activity also remained at wild type level. These facts led to the idea that E. coli has evolved at least two distinct systems for extrusion of
The antiport activities were studied under various conditions to reveal different properties of these systems. For convenience these activities are referred to as major and minor activities. The distinguishing properties of the two systems include : kinetics (Km, Vm) at pH 7.8, competition pattern between
, pH profiles, pattern of the change in kinetic parameters as a function of pH, and sensitivity to protease, chemicals and heat.

Chemotaxonomic and numerical identification were carried out for a isolate of Streptomyces strain SMF301 producing spores in submerged culture. Fifty taxonomic unit characters were tested and the data were analyzed numerically using the TAXON program. The isolate SMF301 was identified to cluster 1A of Streptomyces and best matched to Streptomyces limosus which is a synonym of Streptomyces albidoflavus. Therefore, it was concluded that the isolate was identified to be a member of Streptomyces alidoflavus.

The present study was performed to isolate the fluorescent pseudomonads from Kwang-Ju soil and to construct a mutant strain defective in siderophore biosynthesis. The siderophore-secreting pseudomonads were screened on Blue agar (Chrome Azuol S agar) plates and one strain of them was designated to Pseudominas fluorescens (P. fluorescens) PY002. To construct a mutant defective in siderophore biosynthesis, P. fluorescens PY002 was randomly mutagenized with a transposon Tn5. The location of Tn5 integrated into chromosomal of the mutants strain was determined by Southern blot analysis. The mutagenized strain showed non-fluorescent on a King's B agar plate and were defective in iron (III) acquisition ability.
Streptomyces coelicolor 의 Catalase 들의 분석
The Korean Journal of Microbiology, volume 30, issue 4, 1992, Pages 291~298
Srrepromycec. corlirolar produces at least 4 catalase activity bands with different electrophoretic mobilities on polyacrylamide gel which vary during development. Spores and mycelia at stationary phase produced all the activity bands(Cat1. 760 kr); Cat3-I, 170 kD: Cat3-2, 140 kD: Cat3-3. 130 kD; Cat4, 70 kD) except for Cat2 (300 kD). Mycelia at mid-logarithmic phase produced only Cat2 and Cat3-2 bands, and mycelia at late-logarithmic phase produced bands except Catl and Cat\ulcorner. Catalase-deficient mutants were screened in S. coelicalur by H201 bubbling test following NTG mutagenesis. Wc tested sevcral non-bubbling or slow-bubbling mutants for their catalase activities. The overall activities in cell extracts decreased more than 5 fold. Activity bands in native gel selectively decreased in intensity or disappeared. In all the non-bubbling mutants testcd, Cat3-2 band decreased significantly or disappeared. suggesting that Cat3-2 is the major catalase. The selective disappearance of bands in mutants suggest that each band is governed by different genes. We purified catalase activity from -:ell extracts obtained at late-logarithmic phase. Following chromatographies on Sepharose CL-4B. DEAE Sepharose CL-6B. Phcnyl Sepharose CL-4B. and hydroxylapatite columns. only the Cat3-2 activity was obtained. The native form of Cat3-2 has molecular weight of approximately 140 kD, judged by gel electrophoresis. Thc electrophoretic mobility on SDS-polyactylamide gel suggests that this enzyme contains 2 identical subunits of 67 kD.

An intracellular protease form cells of Pseudomonas carboxydovorans DSM 1227 grown on carbon monoxide was purified 57-fold in six steps to homogeneity with a yield of 4.3% using azocoll as a substrate. The molecular weight of the enzyme was determined to be 150,000. Sodium dodecyl sulfate-gel electrophoresis revealed the purified enzyme to be a dimer with two identical subunits of molecular weight 72,000. The enzyme was stimulated by
but was inhibited completely by
The enzyme activity was also inhibited by EDTA, EGTA, phenylmethylsulfonyl fluoride, and phenyl glyoxal, but was increased by 1-ethyl-3(dimethyl aminopropyl fluoride, and phenyl glyoxal, but was increased by 1-ethyl-3(dimethyl aminopropyl)carbodiimide, iodoacetamide and dithiothereitol. The optimal pH and temperature for the enzyme reaction were found to be 7-8 and 50.deg.C, respectively. Casein and bovine serum albumin were hydrolyzed by the enzyme, but carbon monoxide dehydrogenase was not.

Cytosine deaminase (EC 188.8.131.52) from BaciNus stc~urorhermophilus was partially purified 7.2-fold with an overall yield of 52.7%. The partially purified enzyme deiiminated cytosine only.but not 5-methylcytosine and 5-fluorocytosine. The apparent Michaclis constant. Km valuefor cytosine was 5.9 mM. The enzyme was relatively stable in the range of pH 4.0 to 7.0.furthermore extremely thermo-stable : more than 75'X) of the activity was remained afterheating at 80
C for I0 min at pH 6.5. The enzyme had a pH optimum at around pH7.0 to 7.5. and temperature optimum at 35 to 31
C. And the activation energ (En value)determined from an Arrhenius plot was 26 Kcal/mol. The enzyme activity was stronglyinhibited by heavy metal ions such as Cd", Hg". Cut' at 1 mM, anJ by o-phenanthroline,and p-chloromcrcuribcnzoate at I mM. But the enrymc activity was activatetl increased byGMP, and CMP at 1 mM.ased by GMP, and CMP at 1 mM.

from aqueous solution was studied using Staphylococcus epidermidis. Cells of exponential phase were employed as absorbents. Uptake ratio defined as the ratio of amount of
absorbed to that of initial
. Absorption of
increased with increase in cell concentration. while amount of
per unit cell mass decreased. Uptake ratio of
augmented and then diminished after exhibiting a maximum as the pH of the solution increased. Equilibrium absorption of
deviated from Freundlich isotherm especially at higher concentration of
due to the precipitation phenomena. HCI and EDTA were founded to desorb
more effectively than
. After 10 cycles of absorption and desorption.
absorption capability remained almost unchanged and the biomass had leaked out 30-40 wt/%. Uptake ratio of Pb2+ decreased in the presence of other heavy metal ions due to the competitive absorption The inhibition of
absorption appeared to have a strong correlation with ionic radius of the competing ions. Especially
having smaller ionic radius depressed more significantly the uptake of
than any other metal ions tested.

Catechol 2, 3-dioxygenase (C230) catalyses the oxidative ring cleavage of catechol to 2-hydroxymuconic semialdehyde. This is one of the key reactions in the metabolism of the widespresd pollutant aniline. We have cloned a gene encoding C230 from cells of the aniline degrading bacteria, Pseudomonas acidovorance KCTC2494 strain and expressed in E. coli, A 11.3-kilobase Sau3A partial digested DNA fragment from KCTC2494 was cloned into phagemid vector pBluescript and designated as pLP201. The C230 gene was mapped to a 2.8-kb region, and the derection of transcription was determined. The cloned C230 gene contains its own promoter which can be recognized and employed by E. coli transcriptional apparatus. C230 activities of subclones were identified by enzyme assay and activity staining. The T7 RNA promoter/polymerase system and maxicell analysis showed that a polypeptide with Mw of 35 kDa is the C230 gene product.
유전공학기법으로 변형시킨 내성유전자네 대한 수질환경에서의 전이동태
The Korean Journal of Microbiology, volume 30, issue 4, 1992, Pages 322~331
In order to understand the transfer and behavior of R gene in water environments. the Kmr gene in the genetically modified microorganisms(GMMs) w,is studied by conjugation. The plasmid variously rearranged in the conjugants were comparatively analyzied by agarosc gel electrophoresis and the specific Km' genes in the gel were tletected with DNA probe. The Kmr genes of the GMM strains(DKC600 and DKC601) were transferred at higher rate than those of natural isola~e(DKI)b, ut the ratc was a little diflurent depending upon the recipient strains. Rearrangement of the plasmids appeared morc drastic in GMM strains than in IIKI as donor. The transfer frequencies of the Km' genes in LR broth were remarkably higher than in the water of AW and FW without regards to the strains. In LA breth. the frequencies of Kmr genes were higher at 25'C-30
C than at 10
C and at pH - 7 than pH 9, but temperature and pH of the FW did n,,t affect to the frequency. And the conjugants from GMM strains in FW did not showed any plasmids. except tor 43 kb plasmiil. As results of Southern analysis of the plasmid, variously rearranged in eonjugant cells obtained in LB broth, the Kmr genes were detected at the same position of Km' plasrnids of the donor cell(DK1 and GMM strains). But Km' plasmid disappeared in the conjugants obtained in F'W and their chronlosomes showed strong signal of hybridization. The Kmr plasmid of DKl in the conjugants obtained in FW water was transferred and maintained its size, but the Kmr plasinids of the GMM strains were all integrated into chromosome. Therefore, the Kmr plasmids of DKI anit GMM strains in LH were intactly transferred and other plasmitls were variously rearranged. but Km' gene of DKC600 in FW water was integrated into the chromosorn: without regards to the temperature and pH of the water.
