Oxidative stress response in an anaerobe, Bacteroides fragilis: a role for catalase in protection against hydrogen peroxide.
(East Carolina University, 1996-12)
Survival of Bacteroides fragilis in the presence of oxygen was dependent on the ability of bacteria to synthesize new proteins, as determined by the inhibition of protein synthesis after oxygen exposure. The B. fragilis ...
Regulation of Bacteriodes fragilis katB mRNA by oxidative stress and carbon limitation.
(East Carolina University, 1997-11)
Regulation of the katB catalase gene in the anaerobic bacterium Bacteroides fragilis was studied. Northern blot hybridization analyses revealed that katB was transcribed as an approximately 1.6-kb monocistronic mRNA. The ...
Characterization of a Peroxide-Resistant Mutant of the Anaerobic Bacterium Bacteroides fragilis
(East Carolina University, 1998-11)
A Bacteroides fragilis mutant resistant to hydrogen peroxide and alkyl peroxide was isolated by enrichment in increasing concentrations of hydrogen peroxide. The mutant strain was constitutively resistant to 100 mM H2O2 ...
Biochemical and genetic analyses of a catalase from the anaerobic bacterium Bacteroides fragilis.
(East Carolina University, 1995-06)
A single catalase enzyme was produced by the anaerobic bacterium Bacteroides fragilis when cultures at late log phase were shifted to aerobic conditions. In anaerobic conditions, catalase activity was detected ...
