Chemical compound and disease context of Bacillus megaterium

  • The transbilayer distribution of phospholipids in Bacillus megaterium is asymmetrical, with twice as much phosphatidylethanolamine internally as externally (Rothaman, J. E. & Kennedy, E. P. (1977) J. Mol. Biol. 110,603-618) [11].
  • Stability-increasing mutants of glucose dehydrogenase from Bacillus megaterium IWG3 [12].
  • A unique cytochrome P-450-dependent fatty acid monooxygenase from Bacillus megaterium ATCC 14581 is strongly induced by phenobarbital (Narhi, L. O., and Fulco, A. J. (1982) J. Biol. Chem. 257, 2147-2150) and many other barbiturates (Kim, B.-H., and Fulco, A. J. (1983) Biochem. Biophys. Res. Commun. 116, 843-850) [13].
  • Cell-free extracts from sonically disrupted Bacillus megaterium ATCC 13368 hydroxylated a variety of 3-oxo-delta4-steroids in position 15beta in the presence of NADPH and O2 [14].
  • A protein factor, called PG-I, can be solubilized from toluene-treated Bacillus megaterium cells by LiCl extraction [15].
