Peroxiredoxin 6 from cuttlefish (Sepiella maindroni): molecular characterisation during development and the response to thermal stress

The aim of this work was to investigate the function of the peroxiredoxin family member Peroxiredoxin 6 in Sepiella maindroni (Smprx6) during embryonic development and the response to thermal stress. The 1064 bp full-length coding sequence of Smprx6 includes an open reading frame of 660 bp encoding a polypeptide of 219 amino acids with a predicted molecular mass of 24.4 kDa. The...

Structure Reveals Regulatory Mechanisms of a MaoC-Like Hydratase from Phytophthora capsici Involved in Biosynthesis of Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs)

BackgroundPolyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) have attracted increasing attention as “green plastic” due to their biodegradable, biocompatible, thermoplastic, and mechanical properties, and considerable research has been undertaken to develop low cost/high efficiency processes for the production of PHAs. MaoC-like hydratase (MaoC), which belongs to (R)-hydratase involved in linking the...
