Disease relevance of Eubacterium


High impact information on Eubacterium

  • Growth of strain 195 was resistant to ampicillin and vancomycin; its cell wall did not react with a peptidoglycan-specific lectin and its ultrastructure resembled S-layers of Archaea. Analysis of the 16S ribosomal DNA sequence of strain 195 indicated that it is a eubacterium without close affiliation to any known groups [6].
  • Of hundreds of isolates studied, only Eubacterium lentum, a common anaerobe of the human colonic flora, converted digoxin to reduced derivatives [7].
  • The mechanism of chemo- and phototactic signal transduction in the Archaeon H.salinarium, therefore, is similar to the two-component signaling system known from chemotaxis in the eubacterium E.coli [8].
  • Tungstate Uptake by a highly specific ABC transporter in Eubacterium acidaminophilum [9].
  • The Gram-positive anaerobe Eubacterium acidaminophilum contains at least two tungsten-dependent enzymes: viologen-dependent formate dehydrogenase and aldehyde dehydrogenase [9].

  • Interestingly, AHK4 is capable of functioning as a cytokinin sensor in the eubacterium, Escherichia coli (Suzuki et al. 2001, Plant Cell Physiol. 42: 107) [24].
  • The products of trpE, trpG, and trpC from S. solfataricus were compared to the homologous products from a eukaryote, a eubacterium, and two archaebacteria, namely, a methanogen and an extreme halophile [25].
  • A novel type of aryl sulfotransferase is produced by an anaerobic bacterium of human intestine, Eubacterium A-44 [26].
  • The sequence of the tufA gene from the extreme thermophilic eubacterium Thermus aquaticus EP 00276 was determined [27].
  • We report here the cloning of the ruvB gene from a thermophilic eubacterium, Thermus thermophilus HB8 (Tth), and the biochemical characterization of the gene product expressed in E. coli [28].
