Biochemical Characterization Of An Acid-Adaptive Type III DNA Methyltransferase From Helicobacter Pylori 26695 And Its Biological Significance
Enzyme DNA methylation is an important biochemical process that imprints DNA with additional information. DNA methylation is catalyzed by S-adenosyl-L-methionine (AdoMet)-dependent methyltraferases (MTases). Prokaryotic ...
Characterization Of HP1369-HP1370 From Helicobacter Pylori : A Novel ε Type N6 –Adenine Methyltransferase
Helicobacter pylori is one of the most genetically diverse bacterial species that successfully colonizes at least 50% of the world population. It has been associated with humans for thousands of years and most probably ...
Helicobacter Pylori Restriction-Modification Systems : Possible Roles Beyond Genome Protection
Helicobacter pylori is one of the most potential and successful human pathogen which colonizes atleast 50% of world population. One of the important characteristics of this pathogen is the degree of allelic diversity and ...
Metallophosphoesterases In Mycobacteria Enigmatic Roles In Regulating Mycobacterial Physiology
Pathogenic bacteria such as M.tuberculosis have evolved several mechanisms to aid their intracellular survival and subvert host defenses. One of the contributing factors is thought to be the production and secretion of ...
Stringent Response In Mycobacteria: Molecular Dissection Of Rel
Adaptation to any undesirable change in the environment dictates the survivability of many microorganisms. Such changes generate a quick and suitable response, which guides the physiology of bacteria. Stringent response ...
Structural Studies On Mycobacterial Proteins
Transcription Initiation and its Regulation in Mycobacterium Tuberculosis
The ability to fine-tune gene-expression in the adverse conditions during pre and post infectious stages has contributed in no small measure to the success of Mycobacterium tuberculosis as the deadly pathogen. Multiple ...
Ultrastructural and Molecular Analyses of the Unique Features of Cell Division in Mycobacterium Tuberculosis and Mycobacterium Smegmatis
The Mycobacterium genus contains major human pathogens, like Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Mycobacterium leprae, which are the causative agents of Tuberculosis and Leprosy, respectively. They have evolved as successful ...
