Takada et al., Sapporo, Japan. In Extremophiles, 2006
Experiments with chimeric enzymes between the cold-adapted monomeric IDHs of C. psychrerythraea and C. maris (IDH-M and ICD-II, respectively) suggested that the C-terminal region of the C. maris IDH-II is involved in its catalytic activity.
Takada et al., Sapporo, Japan. In Curr Microbiol, 2004
Several properties of chimeric enzymes between a mesophilic isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH) from a nitrogen-fixing bacterium, Azotobacter vinelandii, and a cold-adapted IDH isozyme (IDH-II) from a psychrophilic bacterium, Colwellia maris, were examined.
Fukunaga et al., Sapporo, Japan. In J Bacteriol, 1995
At a low temperature (15 degrees C), a thermolabile and monomeric type isozyme (IDH-II), which is quite different in amino acid sequence from the E. coli isocitrate dehydrogenase, was expressed and conferred glutamate prototrophic ability on an E. coli mutant defective in isocitrate dehydrogenase.
Immunotitration with antisera to the monomeric and dimeric enzymes (antisera to IDH-II and -I of Vibrio ABE-1) showed an immunochemical distinction between the monomeric and dimeric IDHs, but there is similarity within the IDHs of each group.
