Polynucleotide phosphorylase (PNPase, polyribonucleotide nucleotidyltransferase, EC 22.214.171.124) is a multifunctional protein, with a 3'-5' processive exoribonuclease, a Pi exchange, an RNA polymerase and an autoregulatory activity. The interaction between this enzyme and the mRNA target is crucial for its activities. In the present study, we characterized the interaction of PNPase with its mRNA regulatory region and ssRNA, as well as with ssDNA and dsDNA by determining K(d). Our results indicate that PNPase has high affinity for its mRNA, ssRNA and for ssDNA (K(d) approximately 10-20 nM). However, this enzyme exhibits a lower affinity for dsDNA (K(d) approximately 200-1400 nM). Possible implications of these results on the molecular mechanisms by which PNPase is regulated and degrades mRNA are discussed.
Analysis of Some Phenotypic Traits of Feces-borne Temperate Lambdoid Bacteriophages from Different Immunity Groups: a High Incidence of Cor+, FhuA-dependent Phages
Archives of Virology. 2008 | Pubmed ID: 18516490
A group of previously isolated heterogeneous mEp lambdoid phages (43) from 19 different immunity groups for phage infection was further characterized to gain insight into some phenotypic traits and to assess their relationship with phage lambda. Interestingly, the FhuA host receptor was required by the majority of mEp phages (37 out of 43; approximately 85%). The cor gene, which has been reported to be involved in FhuA-dependent exclusion of lambdoid phages, was also found in most of the FhuA-dependent phages. Accordingly, no cor amplification by PCR was obtained among the six FhuA-independent mEp lambdoid phages. In contrast, it was found that around 25% of the population (10 out of 43 phages) required the specific and essential lambda N antitermination function, and the lambda site-specific DNA recombination function was observed only in two members (4.6%). Thus, a larger proportion of phages require the FhuA receptor for infection, and this is frequently correlated with the cor gene.
