The structure of the nitrilase from Rhodococcus Rhodochrous J1: homology modeling and three-dimensional reconstruction
(University of the Western Cape, 2006)
The nitrilases are an important class of industrial enzymes that are found in all phyla. These enzymes are expressed widely in prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Nitrilases convert nitriles to corresponding acids and ammonia. ...
Structure, enzymology and genetic engineering of Bacillus sp. RAPc8 nitrile hydratase
(University of the Western Cape, 2005)
Microbial nitrile hydratases (NHases) are important industrial enzymes that catalyse the conversion of nitriles to the corresponding amides. A thermostable, cobalt-type Bacillus sp. RAPc8 NHase was previously cloned and ...
Recombinant expression of the pRb- and p53-interacting domains from the human RBBP6 protein for in vitro binding studies
(University of the Western Cape, 2004)
This thesis describes the cloning and recombinant expression of domains from the human RBBP6 protein for future in vitro binding studies with pRb and p53. RBBP6 is a splicing-associated protein that is known to interact ...
