Article Example
Tryptophanase Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are L-tryptophan and HO, whereas its 3 products are indole, pyruvate, and NH.
Tryptophanase This enzyme belongs to the family of lyases, specifically in the "catch-all" class of carbon-carbon lyases. The systematic name of this enzyme class is L-tryptophan indole-lyase (deaminating; pyruvate-forming). Other names in common use include L-tryptophanase, and L-tryptophan indole-lyase (deaminating). This enzyme participates in tryptophan metabolism and nitrogen metabolism. It has 2 cofactors: pyridoxal phosphate, and Potassium.
Tryptophanase In enzymology, a tryptophanase () is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction
Tryptophanase As of late 2007, 3 structures have been solved for this class of enzymes, with PDB accession codes , , and .
Symbiobacterium thermophilum Symbiobacterium thermophilum is a symbiotic thermophile that depends on co-culture with a "Bacillus" strain for growth. It is Gram-negative and tryptophanase-positive, with type strain T(T) (= IAM 14863). It is the type species of its genus. Its genome has been sequenced.
Indole test The indole test is a biochemical test performed on bacterial species to determine the ability of the organism to convert tryptophan into the indole. This division is performed by a chain of a number of different intracellular enzymes, a system generally referred to as "tryptophanase."
P-Dimethylaminocinnamaldehyde It is primarily used as a histological dye used to detect indoles, particularly for production in cells. It is used for the rapid identification of bacteria containing tryptophanase enzyme systems. It is also particularly useful for localization of proanthocyanidins compounds in plants, resulting in a blue staining. It has been used for grapevine fruit or for legumes foliage histology.
Indole test Indole is generated by reductive deamination from tryptophan via the intermediate molecule indolepyruvic acid. Tryptophanase catalyzes the deamination reaction, during which the amine (-NH) group of the tryptophan molecule is removed. Final products of the reaction are indole, pyruvic acid, ammonium (NH) and energy. Pyridoxal phosphate is required as a coenzyme.
IMViC In this test, the organism under consideration is grown in peptone water broth. It contains tryptophan, which under the action of enzyme tryptophanase is converted to an Indole molecule, pyruvate and ammonium. The indole is then extracted from the broth by means of xylene. To test the broth for indole production, Kovac's reagent is added after incubation. A positive result is indicated by a pink/red layer forming on top of the liquid.
Multilocus sequence typing To strike the balance between the acceptable identification power, time and cost for the strain typing, about seven to eight house-keeping genes are commonly used in the laboratories. Quoting "Staphylococcus aureus" as an example, seven housekeeping genes are used in MLST typing. These genes include carbamate kinase ("arcC"), shikimate dehydrogenase ("aroE"), glycerol kinase ("glpF"), guanylate kinase ("gmk"), phosphate acetyltransferase ("pta"), triosephosphate isomerase ("tpi") and acetyl coenzyme A acetyltransferase ("yqiL") as specified by the MLST website. However, it is not uncommon for up to ten housekeeping genes to be used. For "Vibrio vulnificus", the housekeeping genes used are glucose-6-phosphate isomerase ("glp"), DNA gyrase, subunit B ("gyrB"), malate-lactate dehydrogenase ("mdh"), methionyl-tRNA synthetase ("metG"), phosphoribosylaminoimidazole synthetase ("purM"), threonine dehyrogenase ("dtdS"), diaminopimelate decarboxylase ("lysA"), transhydrogenase alpha subunit ("pntA"), dihydroorotase ("pyrC") and tryptophanase ("tnaA"). Thus both the number and type of housekeeping genes interrogated by MLST may differ from species to species.
