CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Amino acids and peptides as mediators of abiotic stress tolerance in higher plants.

This chapter discusses the role of amino acids and peptides in mediating abiotic stress tolerance in higher plants. The pathways involved in plant responses to abiotic stress (such as salinity, ambient temperature, drought, acid rain, anoxia and heavy metal contamination) are highly complex,...

Cover for Glutamate decarboxylase in bacteria.

γ-Aminobutyrate (GABA) is a non-proteinaceous amino acid which plays different roles in the living systems. GABA is biochemically produced by the irreversible α-decarboxylation of L-glutamate catalysed by glutamate decarboxylase (Gad), a widespread enzyme distributed among eukaryotes and...

Cover for Structural and functional properties of glutamate dehydrogenases.

Glutamate dehydrogenases are homooligomeric enzymes that catalyse the reversible oxidative deamination of glutamate to 2-oxoglutarate, thereby linking nitrogen metabolism and the tricarboxylic acid cycle. Four different classes of the enzyme are known in microbes that differ in size and cofactor...

Cover for Arginase and microbial pathogenesis in the lungs.

Strict regulation of pulmonary capillary barrier integrity is crucial for preventing capillary leak and ensuring optimal gaseous exchange at the alveolar-capillary interface. Bacterial infection of the lungs, as can be seen during severe pneumonia, can dramatically impair lung barrier function and...

Cover for Hydroxyproline metabolism in microorganisms.

L-Hydroxyproline (L-Hyp) has been detected in certain proteins, particularly collagen, as well as in some peptide antibiotics. In mammalian systems, the L-proline residue in procollagen is post-translationally hydroxylated to trans-4-hydroxy-L-proline (T4LHyp) or trans-3-hydroxyl-proline (T3 LHyp). ...

Cover for Regulation of sulfur amino acid metabolism in fungi.

The fungal biosynthesis of cysteine and methionine requires the ability to accumulate sulfur atoms from the environment and to convert the sulfur into a usable form (e.g. sulfide). In particular, the processes involved in sulfur amino acid biosynthesis, including sulfur acquisition, the generation...
