  1. Wu J, Tisa L, Rosen B. Membrane topology of the ArsB protein, the membrane subunit of an anion-translocating ATPase. J Biol Chem. 1992;267:12570-6 pubmed
    ..The location of a periplasmic loop was determined from V8 protease digestion of an ArsA-ArsB chimera. From analysis of data from 26 fusions, a topological model of the ArsB protein with 12 membrane-spanning regions is proposed. ..
  2. Shi J, Mukhopadhyay R, Rosen B. Identification of a triad of arginine residues in the active site of the ArsC arsenate reductase of plasmid R773. FEMS Microbiol Lett. 2003;227:295-301 pubmed
    ..The data support the hypothesis that this triad of arginine residues is involved in arsenate binding and transition-state stabilization. ..
  3. Meng Y, Liu Z, Rosen B. As(III) and Sb(III) uptake by GlpF and efflux by ArsB in Escherichia coli. J Biol Chem. 2004;279:18334-41 pubmed
    ..We propose that the actual substrate of ArsB is a polymer of (AsO)(n), (SbO)(n), or a co-polymer of the two metalloids. ..
  4. DeMel S, Shi J, Martin P, Rosen B, Edwards B. Arginine 60 in the ArsC arsenate reductase of E. coli plasmid R773 determines the chemical nature of the bound As(III) product. Protein Sci. 2004;13:2330-40 pubmed
    ..We propose that this intermediate is more stable than the monohydroxyarsenite intermediate of the native enzyme, resulting in slow release of product and, consequently, loss of activity. ..
  5. Yang H, Cheng J, Finan T, Rosen B, Bhattacharjee H. Novel pathway for arsenic detoxification in the legume symbiont Sinorhizobium meliloti. J Bacteriol. 2005;187:6991-7 pubmed publisher
    ..Thus, AqpS confers arsenate resistance together with ArsC-catalyzed reduction. This is the first report of an aquaglyceroporin with a physiological function in arsenic resistance...
  6. Lin Y, Yang J, Rosen B. ArsD: an As(III) metallochaperone for the ArsAB As(III)-translocating ATPase. J Bioenerg Biomembr. 2007;39:453-8 pubmed publisher
    ..It is proposed that ArsD residues Cys12, Cys13 and Cys18, but not Cys112, Cys113, Cys119 or Cys120, are required for delivery of As(III) to and activation of the ArsAB pump...
  7. Mukhopadhyay R, Shi J, Rosen B. Purification and characterization of ACR2p, the Saccharomyces cerevisiae arsenate reductase. J Biol Chem. 2000;275:21149-57 pubmed
    ..This suggests that during the catalytic cycle, Acr2p forms a mixed disulfide with GSH before being reduced by glutaredoxin to regenerate the active Acr2p reductase. ..
  8. Carlin A, Shi W, Dey S, Rosen B. The ars operon of Escherichia coli confers arsenical and antimonial resistance. J Bacteriol. 1995;177:981-6 pubmed
    ..Expression of the ars genes was inducible by arsenite. By Southern hybridization, the operon was found in all strains of E. coli examined but not in Salmonella typhimurium, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, or Bacillus subtilis. ..
  9. Rosen B. The plasmid-encoded arsenical resistance pump: an anion-translocating ATPase. Res Microbiol. 1990;141:336-41 pubmed
    ..This two-subunit enzyme produces resistance to arsenite and antimonite. A third gene, arsC, expands the substrate specificity to allow for arsenate pumping and resistance. ..

    ..The arsC gene was cloned behind a strong promoter and expressed at high levels. The ArsC protein was purified and crystallized. ..

  3. Liu J, Rosen B. Ligand interactions of the ArsC arsenate reductase. J Biol Chem. 1997;272:21084-9 pubmed
    ..Cys-12 thiolate was also required. Thus the intrinsic fluorescence of Trp-11 provides a useful probe to investigate the mechanism of this novel reductase. ..
  4. Oden K, Gladysheva T, Rosen B. Arsenate reduction mediated by the plasmid-encoded ArsC protein is coupled to glutathione. Mol Microbiol. 1994;12:301-6 pubmed
    ..Since ArsC-catalysed reduction of arsenate provides high level resistance, physical coupling of the ArsC reaction to efflux of the resulting arsenite is hypothesised. ..

    ..In addition to the previously identified ArsA and ArsC proteins, the cells synthesized an inner membrane protein with an apparent mass of 36 kD identified as the ArsB protein. ..
  6. Bhattacharjee H, Rosen B. Structure-function analysis of the ArsA ATPase: contribution of histidine residues. J Bioenerg Biomembr. 2001;33:459-68 pubmed
    ..The results indicate that no single histidine residue plays a direct role in catalysis, and the inhibition by DEPC may be caused by steric hindrance from the carbethoxy group. ..
  7. Mukhopadhyay R, Rosen B. Arsenate reductases in prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Environ Health Perspect. 2002;110 Suppl 5:745-8 pubmed
    ..The yeast Acr2p has an active site motif HC(X)(5)R that is conserved in protein phosphotyrosine phosphatases and rhodanases, suggesting that these three groups of enzymes may have evolved from an ancestral oxyanion-binding protein. ..
  8. Yang J, Rawat S, Stemmler T, Rosen B. Arsenic binding and transfer by the ArsD As(III) metallochaperone. Biochemistry. 2010;49:3658-66 pubmed publisher
