Disease relevance of pcaG


High impact information on pcaG

  • Natural transformation facilitated introduction of 68 different variants of the wild-type repeat structure within pcaG into the A. baylyi chromosome, and the frequency of deletion between the repetitions was determined with a novel method, precision plating [3].
  • Placement of an in-phase termination codon between the repeated sequences in pcaG prevents growth with quinate and permits selection of sequence-guided deletions that excise the codon and permit quinate to be used as a growth substrate at room temperature [3].
  • The pcaG and pcaH genes represent separate reading frames respectively encoding the alpha and beta subunits of protocatechuate 3,4-dioxygenase (EC; previously a single designation, pcaA, had been used to represent DNA encoding this enzyme [4].

Biological context of pcaG

  • Two protocatechuate 3,4-dioxygenase subunits, pcaG and pcaH were detected and identified with N-terminal and internal sequencing, suggesting proteomics using a column separation may be helpful for the identification of specific protein spots and maximizing the detectable protein spots on the 2-DE gel [2].
