Chemical compound and disease context of Micrococcus


Biological context of Micrococcus

  • DNase VIII can also initiate hydrolysis at those distorted termini produced by the action of Micrococcus luteus dimer specific endonuclease on duplex DNA, which contains cyclobutane dimers [16].
  • An uncoupler-sensitive active transport of sulphate into membrane vesicles prepared from the plasma membrane of Paracoccus denitrificans (previously Micrococcus denitrificans) can be driven by respiration or by a trans-membrane pH gradient (alkaline inside) generated by the addition either of KCL ( in the presence of nigericin) or of NH4CL [17].
  • The initial methylation rate of poly(dI-dC) X poly(dI-dC) is about 10-times higher than that of poly-(dG-dC) X poly(dG-dC) or of the native Micrococcus luteus DNA [18].
  • The dnaA-dnaN intergenic region is approximately 1 kb and contains a cluster of at least 12 DnaA boxes with a consensus sequence of TTGTCCACA matching the consensus DnaA box in the phylogenetically related Micrococcus luteus [19].
  • A spin label consisting of cytidine substituted in position C5 with an 11-atom-tethered 5-membered ring nitroxide (DCAVAP) was incorporated into linear (dG-dC)n with Micrococcus luteus DNA polymerase or into a specific 34-bp Z-DNA-forming region of the 2.7-kb plasmid pRDZ8 with Thermus aquaticus DNA polymerase (Stoffel fragment) [20].
