  • Change in heat capacity for enzyme catalysis determines temperature dependence of enzyme catalyzed ratesnzyme Catalyzed Rates

    Hobbs, Joanne K.; Jiao, Wanting; Easter, Ashley Davys; Parker, Emily J.; Schipper, Louis A.; Arcus, Vickery L. (American Chemical Society, 2013)
    The increase in enzymatic rates with temperature up to an optimum temperature (Topt) is widely attributed to classical Arrhenius behavior, with the decrease in enzymatic rates above Topt ascribed to protein denaturation ...
  • Crystal structure of an inferred ancestral bacterial pyruvate decarboxylase

    Buddrus, Lisa; Andrews, Emma Sophie Vout; Leak, David J.; Danson, Michael J.; Arcus, Vickery L.; Crennell, Susan J. (International Union of Crystallography, 2018)
    Pyruvate decarboxylase (PDC; EC 4.1.1.1) is a key enzyme in homofermentative metabolism where ethanol is the major product. PDCs are thiamine pyrophos­phate- and Mg2+ ion-dependent enzymes that catalyse the non-oxidative ...
  • Crystal structure of pyruvate decarboxylase from Zymobacter palmae

    Buddrus, Lisa; Andrews, Emma Sophie Vout; Leak, David J.; Danson, Michael J.; Arcus, Vickery L.; Crennell, Susan J. (International Union of Crystallography, 2016)
    Pyruvate decarboxylase (PDC; EC 4.1.1.1) is a thiamine pyrophosphate- and Mg²⁺ ion-dependent enzyme that catalyses the non-oxidative decarboxylation of pyruvate to acetaldehyde and carbon dioxide. It is rare in bacteria, ...
  • Determination of ribonuclease sequence-specificity using Pentaprobes and mass spectrometry

    McKenzie, Joanna Leigh; Duyvestyn, Johanna Maria; Smith, Tony C.; Bendak, Katerina; Mackay, Joel P.; Cursons, Raymond T.; Cook, Gregory M.; Arcus, Vickery L. (RNA Society, 2012)
    The VapBC toxin-antitoxin (TA) family is the largest of nine identified TA families. The toxin, VapC, is a metal-dependent ribonuclease that is inhibited by its cognate antitoxin, VapB. Although the VapBCs are the largest ...
  • Editorial: Biotechnological Uses of Archaeal Proteins

    Pecorari, Frédéric; Arcus, Vickery L.; Wiegel, Juergen (HINDAWI PUBLISHING CORP, 2015-01-01)
    Many industrial/biotechnological processes take place under extreme conditions of temperature, pH, salinity, or pressure which are not suitable for activities of proteins from model eukaryotic or common neutrophilic, ...
