Disease relevance of Rhizopus


High impact information on Rhizopus

  • Fatal Rhizopus infections in hemodialysis patients receiving deferoxamine [6].
  • Rhizoxin is a tubulin-binding cytotoxic compound, isolated from the fungus Rhizopus chinensis, with significant antineoplastic activity in several murine and human tumor models [7].
  • Using the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, we have been studying the secretion of a heterologous protein, Rhizopus niveus aspartic proteinase-I (RNAP-I) [8].
  • Strong support for this conclusion is provided by the agreement found in the case of Rhizopus niveus glucoamylase (alpha-TV/K 1.26; Km 26 mM) between measured values of the alpha-secondary deuterium kinetic isotope effects (alpha-DV/K 1.16; alpha-DV 1.20) and those calculated from the tritium isotope effect [9].
  • Phospholipase A2 from snake venom or from pancreas failed to release 20:4 from L(bis)PA, and lipase (phospholipase A1) from Rhizopus delmar liberated no more than one-third of this arachidonate [10].
