Robert van Lis et al.
Plant physiology, 161(1), 57-71 (2012-11-17)
Eukaryotic algae have long been known to live in anoxic environments, but interest in their anaerobic energy metabolism has only recently gained momentum, largely due to their utility in biofuel production. Chlamydomonas reinhardtii figures remarkably in this respect, because it

This review examines the mechanisms propelling cofactor-independent, organic cofactor-dependent and metal-dependent decarboxylase chemistry. Decarboxylation, the removal of carbon dioxide from organic acids, is a fundamentally important reaction in biology. Numerous decarboxylase enzymes serve as key components of aerobic and anaerobic

Conformational transitions of biomolecules in response to specific stimuli control many biological processes. In natural functional RNA switches, often called riboswitches, a particular RNA structure that has a suppressive or facilitative effect on gene expression transitions to an alternative structure

Deletion of SIT4 phosphatase decreased the pyruvate decarboxylase activity, which is essential for directing the glucose flux to ethanol production. Concomitantly, a reduction in the fermentative capacity was observed. As pyruvate decarboxylase expression was not altered, its post-translational phosphorylation was

Biochemistry, 52(18), 3028-3030 (2013-04-24)
It is widely accepted that, in thiamin diphosphate (ThDP)-dependent enzymes, much of the rate acceleration is provided by the cofactor. Inter alia, the reactive conformation of ThDP, known as the V-conformation, has been attributed to the presence of a bulky

Biochemistry, 53(13), 2145-2152 (2014-03-19)
Identification of enzyme-bound intermediates via their spectroscopic signatures, which then allows direct monitoring of the kinetic fate of these intermediates, poses a continuing challenge. As an electrophilic covalent catalyst, the thiamin diphosphate (ThDP) coenzyme forms a number of noncovalent and

In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, genes involved in thiamin pyrophosphate (TPP) synthesis (THI genes) and the pyruvate decarboxylase structural gene PDC5 are transcriptionally induced in response to thiamin starvation. Three positive regulatory factors (Thi2p, Thi3p, and Pdc2p) are involved in the expression

Although acute hyperglycemic (AHG) episodes are linked to lower glucose uptake, underlying mechanisms remain unclear. We hypothesized that AHG triggers reactive oxygen species (ROS) production and increases non-oxidative glucose pathway (NOGP) activation, i.e. stimulation of advanced glycation end products (AGE)
