  1. Barua S, Yamashino T, Hasegawa T, Yokoyama K, Torii K, Ohta M. Involvement of surface polysaccharides in the organic acid resistance of Shiga Toxin-producing Escherichia coli O157:H7. Mol Microbiol. 2002;43:629-40 pubmed
    ..To the best of our knowledge, this is a newly identified physiological role for O-polysaccharide and ECA as well as an acid resistance mechanism. ..
  2. Sudo Y, Kitade Y, Furutani Y, Kojima M, Kojima S, Homma M, et al. Interaction between Na+ ion and carboxylates of the PomA-PomB stator unit studied by ATR-FTIR spectroscopy. Biochemistry. 2009;48:11699-705 pubmed publisher
    ..We conclude that Asp24 and at least two other carboxylates constitute Na(+) interaction sites in the PomA-PomB complex. This work reveals features of the Na(+) pathway in the PomA-PomB Na(+) channel by using vibrational spectroscopy. ..
  3. Fujishiro T, Shoji O, Kawakami N, Watanabe T, Sugimoto H, Shiro Y, et al. Chiral-substrate-assisted stereoselective epoxidation catalyzed by H2O2-dependent cytochrome P450SP?. Chem Asian J. 2012;7:2286-93 pubmed publisher
    ..A docking simulation of the binding of styrene in the active site of the (R)-ibuprofen-bound form suggested that the orientation of the vinyl group of styrene in the active site agreed with the formation of (S)-styrene oxide. ..
  4. Yamada H, Furusho Y, Yashima E. Diastereoselective imine-bond formation through complementary double-helix formation. J Am Chem Soc. 2012;134:7250-3 pubmed publisher
    ..The second step involves formation of a preferred-handed complementary double helix assisted by the chiral amidine templates and determines the overall reaction rate and diastereoselectivity of the amine...

    ..Furutani, Y., and Kandori, H. (2003) Biochemistry 42, 2300-2306]. In the transition from ppR(M) to ppR(O), a hydrogen-bonding alteration takes place for another water molecule that forms a strong hydrogen bond...
  7. Sakuma M, Sakakura A, Ishihara K. Kinetic resolution of racemic carboxylic acids through asymmetric protolactonization promoted by chiral phosphonous acid diester. Org Lett. 2013;15:2838-41 pubmed publisher
    ..Asymmetric protolactonization also leads to the desymmetrization of achiral carboxylic acids. Notably, chiral phosphonous acid diester not only induced the enantioselectivity but also promoted protolactonization...
  8. Oba Y, Ojika M, Inouye S. Characterization of CG6178 gene product with high sequence similarity to firefly luciferase in Drosophila melanogaster. Gene. 2004;329:137-45 pubmed
    ..Further, phylogenic analyses strongly suggest that the firefly luciferase gene may have evolved from a fatty acyl-CoA synthetase gene as a common ancestral gene. ..
  9. Oba Y, Sato M, Ojika M, Inouye S. Enzymatic and genetic characterization of firefly luciferase and Drosophila CG6178 as a fatty acyl-CoA synthetase. Biosci Biotechnol Biochem. 2005;69:819-28 pubmed
    ..These results suggest that insects have a novel type of fatty acyl-CoA synthetase. ..

    ..This study shows that at low environmental pH, biofilm formation in S. pyogenes is mediated by YvqE and suggests that regulation of pilus expression by environmental acidification could be directly under the control of YvqE. ..
