Disease relevance of sll0654

  • Although there are three assignments for putative alkaline phosphatase genes in the Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 genome, only sll0654 expression was detected by northern analysis under phosphate limitation [1].
  • An alignment identified a conserved 177 amino acid domain that was found at the N-terminus of the protein encoded by sll0654 but at the C-terminus of the protein in Synechococcus sp. PCC 7942 [1].

High impact information on sll0654

  • We identified previously a two component system, which consists of histidine kinase SphS and its cognate response regulator SphR, which regulates the expression of the phoA gene for alkaline phosphatase under phosphate-limiting conditions in the cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 [2].
  • The enzyme can be reactivated in vitro by different methods such as alkaline phosphatase treatment, but not phosphodiesterase, by raising the pH of the crude extract to values higher than 8, by increasing the ionic strength of the cell-free extract, or by preincubation with organic solvents, such as 2-propanol and ethanol [3].
