Flourescent properties of histidine decarboxylase from Micrococcus sp. n

L A SeminaS S Aleksandrova


A dependency of fluorescence parameters of histidinedecarboxylase (HDC) from Micrococcuc sp. n. on pH values is studied. Native HDS has a short-waved maximum position (325 nm) and a small half-width of the fluorescence spectrum (48nm). The change in the quantum yield of the enzyme fluorescence was parallel with the change of the enzymatic activity. Triptophane residues of native HDC are located at hydrophobic region of the enzyme globula. The dependency of HDC flourescence parameters on pH values in 8 M urea was similar to that of free triptophane. A comparative study of fluorescences parameters of HDC and its inhibitory complexes with methyl ester of histidine (MEH), hydroxylamine and p-chloromercuriumbensoate is carried out. The effect of HDC interacting with inhibitors on fluorescence parameters of the enzyme is discussed. No differences were found in infra-red spectra of HDC and its inhibitory complex with MEH.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.
