Enzyme mechanisms: Sugary shears

October 18th, 2016 by Ethan D Goddard-Borger

Nature Chemical Biology 12, 892 (2016). doi:10.1038/nchembio.2216

Author: Ethan D Goddard-Borger

Proteolytic maturation of an important transcriptional regulator is performed by a glycosyltransferase. The reaction involves glycosylation of a glutamate residue and conversion of the γ-glycosyl ester product into an N-acyl pyroglutamate, which undergoes spontaneous hydrolysis to effect peptide backbone fission.

Metabolic engineering: Biosensors get the green light

October 18th, 2016 by Sarah K Hammer

Nature Chemical Biology 12, 894 (2016). doi:10.1038/nchembio.2214

Authors: Sarah K Hammer & José L Avalos

A novel approach recruits the largest prokaryotic family of ligand-induced transcriptional regulators to develop a new class of biosensors in yeast based on transcriptional activation, vastly expanding the repertoire of biosensors that could function in eukaryotic hosts.
