Bacterial Metabolism by Gerhard Gottschalk (auth.)

By Gerhard Gottschalk (auth.)

This concise but finished textual content surveys the sector of bacterial metabolism in phrases valuable to scholars and researchers. Emphasis is on these metabolic reactions happening basically in micro organism. hence, the publication describes intimately the strength metabolism of a number of the teams of micro organism. additionally it examines pathways utilized by micro organism for the degradation of natural compounds, the synthesis of mobile consituents, the rules of bacterial metabolism and the fixation of molecular nitrogen. the final association of the 1st version has been retained. even though, it's been completely revised and up to date in popularity of the speedy growth of study during this box. Readers also will have fun with the elevated emphasis on membrane-associated strategies. From the evaluate of the second one variation: "If there's a greater textbook in its fields, i am not conscious of it, and that i consider the booklet merits a spot at the shelf of any severe pupil of microbiology." -ASM information

Sample text

Oxaloacetate, for instance, is the starting point for the synthesis of six amino acids, a-oxoglutarate is the precursor of four, and pyruvate of three amino acids. A. The oxaloacetate and pyruvate families of amino acids An inspection of the metabolic routes leading to the nine amino acids of these families reveals that common pathways are frequently employed. This and the important role of oxaloacetate and of pyruvate as building blocks are apparent from Fig. 5. It also can be seen from this figure that L-asparate and L-threonine are both products and intermediates.

Because of their mode of action uncouplers are now also called protonophores. The respiratory chain can also be impaired by inhibitors of electron transport. Such inhibitors are rotenone, amytal, antimycin, 2-n-heptyl-4hydroxyquinoline-N-oxide (HQNO), potassium cyanide, and carbon monoxide. Their sites of action are indicated in Fig. 17. Some compounds specifically inhibit the ATP synthase, for example, the antibiotic oligomycin and dicyclohexylcarbodiimide (DCCD). In the presence of these inhibitors electron transport can only be observed when a protonophore is also present.

Transferred to one carrier molecule: carrier + 2H ( ) carrier - H 2 Cytochromes and iron-sulfur proteins are electron carriers. Four classes of cytochromes are distinguished: cytochromes a, b, c, and d. The structural differences between them are indicated in Fig. 10. These differences have an effect on the redox potential of the cytochromes which, however, is also influenced by the electron affinity of the protein ligands interacting with the central Fe atom. 4 V (cytochrome a3)' Cytochrome 0 does not represent a fifth class of cytochromes; it rather is a b-type cytochrome with oxidase activity.
