Unusual metallo-β-lactamases may constitute a new subgroup in this family of enzymes
(Scientific Research Publishing, 2014-01)
Metallo-β-lactamases (MBLs) are a family of Zn2+-dependent enzymes that have contributed strongly to the emergence and spread of antibiotic resistance. Novel members as well as variants of existing members of this family ...
Inteins—A Focus on the Biotechnological Applications of Splicing-Promoting Proteins
(Scientific Research Publishing, 2015-03)
The main aim of this mini-review is to illustrate strategies and industrial applications based on inteins (INTErnal proteINS), which belong to a class of autocatalytic enzymes that are able to perform a catalytic reaction ...
Identification and preliminary characterization of novel B3-type metallo-β-lactamases
(Scientific Research Publishing, 2013-10)
Antibiotic resistance has emerged as a major global threat to human health. Among the strategies employed by pathogens to acquire resistance the use of metallo-β-lactamases (MBLs), a family of dinuclear metalloenzymes, is ...
