Chromosomal integration offers a selection-free alternative to DNA plasmids for expression of foreign proteins and metabolic pathways. Episomal plasmid DNA is convenient but has drawbacks including increased metabolic burden and the requirement for selection in the form of antibiotics. E. coli has long been used for the expression of foreign proteins and for the production of valuable metabolites by expression of complete metabolic pathways. The gene encoding the fluorescent reporter protein mCherry was integrated into four genomic loci on the E...

The severity of IgA nephropathy (IgAN), the most common primary glomerulonephritis, is judged on the basis of histologic and clinical features. A limited number of studies have considered molecular signature of IgAN for this issue and no reliable biomarkers have been presented non-invasively for use in patient evaluations. This study aims to identify metabolite markers excreted in the urine and impaired pathways that are associated with a known marker of severity (proteinuria) to predict mild and severe stages of IgAN...

Cinnamomum cassia (Lauraceae) has long been used as one of the most frequently used traditional oriental medicines for the treatment of gastritis, diabetes, blood circulation disturbance and inflammatory diseases. Cinnamomulactone (1), a new butyrolactone was isolated from the twigs of C. cassia together with nine known compounds, coumarin (2), trans-cinnamic acid (3), cinnamaldehyde (4), 2-hydroxycinnamaldehyde (5), 2-methoxycinnamaldehyde (6), 2-hydroxy-cinnamyl alcohol (7), benzoic acid (8), (+)-syringaresinol (9) and phenethyl (E)-3-[4-methoxyphenyl]-2-propenoate (10)...

Enzyme substitution therapy with the phenylalanine ammonia lyase (PAL) is a new approach to the treatment of patients with phenylketonuria (PKU). This enzyme is responsible for the conversion of phenylalanine to trans-cinnamic acid. We assessed the PAL enzyme of the endemic plant Cyathobasis fruticulosa (Bunge) Aellen. for its possible role in the dietary treatment of PKU. The enzyme was found to have a high activity of (64.9±0.1) U/mg, with the optimum pH, temperature and buffer (Tris-HCl and l-phenylalanine) concentration levels of pH=8...

Phenolic compounds, metabolites of the phenylpropanoid pathway, play an important role in the growth and environmental adaptation of many plants. Phenylalanine ammonia-lyase (PAL) is the first key enzyme of the phenylpropanoid pathway. The present study was designed to investigate whether there is a multi-gene family in I. Indigotic and, if so, to characterize their properties. We conducted a comprehensive survey on the transcription profiling database by using tBLASTn analysis. Several bioinformatics methods were employed to perform the prediction of composition and physicochemical characters...

Auxin steers numerous physiological processes in plants, making the tight control of its endogenous levels and spatiotemporal distribution a necessity. This regulation is achieved by different mechanisms, including auxin biosynthesis, metabolic conversions, degradation, and transport. Here, we introduce cis-cinnamic acid (c-CA) as a novel and unique addition to a small group of endogenous molecules affecting in planta auxin concentrations. c-CA is the photo-isomerization product of the phenylpropanoid pathway intermediate trans-CA (t-CA)...

This study was performed to investigate changes in the phenolic acid and vitamin E profiles of germinated rough rice following high hydrostatic pressure treatment (HPT). Rough rice was germinated at 37°C for two days and subjected to 0.1, 10, 30, 50, and 100MPa pressures for 24h. The total phenolic acid content increased from 85.37μg/g at 0.1MPa to 183.52μg/g at 100MPa.

Melaleuca bracteata is a yellow-leaved tree belonging to the Melaleuca genus. Species from this genus are known to be good sources of natural antioxidants, for example, the "tea tree oil" derived from M. alternifolia is used in food processing to extend the shelf life of products. In order to determine whether M. bracteata contains novel natural antioxidants, the components of M. bracteata ethanol extracts were analyzed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. Total phenolic and flavonoid contents were extracted and the antioxidant activities of the extracts evaluated...

This study reports the first phenolics from Wissadula genus (Malvaceae) and the anti-inflammatory activity of 7,4'-di-O-methylisoscutellarein. Using chromatographic methods, five phenolic compounds were isolated from aerial parts of Wissadula periplocifolia (L.) C. Presl. The compounds were identified as 4-hydroxybenzoic acid, 3-hydroxybenzoic acid, trans-cinnamic acid, tamgermanetin and 7,4'-di-O-methylisoscutellarein using spectroscopic methods. The flavone 7,4'-di-O-methylisoscutellarein showed anti-inflammatory activity by inhibiting neutrophils recruitment in a mice model of pleurisy and by decreasing significantly the production of cytokines IL-1β and TNF-α...

Two novel strictly anaerobic bacteria, strains Bs105T and Bs107T, were isolated from a deep aquifer-derived hydrocarbonoclastic community. The cells were rod-shaped, not motile and had terminal spores. Phylogenetic affiliation and physiological properties revealed that these isolates belong to two novel species of the genus Desulfotomaculum. Optimal growth temperatures for strains Bs105T and Bs107T were 42 and 45 °C, respectively. The estimated G+C content of the genomic DNA was 42.9 and 48.7 mol%. For both strains, the major cellular fatty acid was palmitate (C16 : 0)...

To produce styrene from a biomass-derived carbon source, Streptomyces lividans was adopted as a host strain. The gene encoding ferulic acid decarboxylase from Saccharomyces cerevisiae (FDC1) was introduced into S. lividans, and the resulting S. lividans transformant successfully expressed FDC1 and converted trans-cinnamic acid (CA) to styrene. A key factor in styrene production using microbes is the recovery of volatile styrene. In the present study, we selected polystyrene resin beads XRD-4 as the absorbent agent to recover styrene produced using S...

CONTEXT: Phenylketonuria (PKU) is the most common hereditary defect of phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH) enzyme achieving the hydroxylation of phenylalanine (Phe). Phenylalanine ammonia lyase (PAL) converts Phe to a harmless metabolite, trans-cinnamic acid (TCA) in plants and PAL enzyme activity is fairly high in plants rich in flavonoids. OBJECTIVE: The study aimed the biochemical analysis of PAL form Centaurea depressa BIEB. (Asteraceae) a flavonoid rich plant. This study may form the main frame of future research efforts for the development of a plant preparation aimed for oral intake in PKU patients in an attempt to enrich their diet by allowing them to ingest some food stuff containing Phe without being exposed to complications...

Cinnamate-4-hydroxylase (C4H) converts trans-cinnamic acid (CA) to p-coumaric acid (COA) in the phenylpropanoid/lignin biosynthesis pathway. Earlier we reported increased expression of AaCYP71AV1 (an important gene of artemisinin biosynthesis pathway) caused by CA treatment in Artemisia annua. Hence, AaC4H gene was identified, cloned, characterized and silenced in A. annua with the assumption that the elevated internal CA due to knock down may increase the artemisinin yield. Accumulation of trans-cinnamic acid in the plant due to AaC4H knockdown was accompanied with the reduction of p-coumaric acid, total phenolics, anthocyanin, cinnamate-4-hydroxylase (C4H) and phenylalanine ammonia lyase (PAL) activities but increase in salicylic acid (SA) and artemisinin...

Pinosylvin as a bioactive stilbene is of great interest for food supplements and pharmaceuticals development. In comparison to conventional extraction of pinosylvin from plant sources, biosynthesis engineering of microbial cell factories is a sustainable and flexible alternative method. Current synthetic strategies often require expensive phenylpropanoic precursor and inducer, which are not available for large-scale fermentation process. In this study, three bioengineering strategies were described to the development of a simple and economical process for pinosylvin biosynthesis in Escherichia coli...

To clarify the mechanisms of selenium (Se) tolerance in peanut seedlings, we grew peanut seedlings with sodium selenite (0, 3, and 6 mg/L), and investigated the phenylpropanoids metabolism in seedling roots. The results showed that selenite up-regulated the expression of genes and related enzyme activities involving in the phenylpropanoids biosynthesis cascade, such as phenylalanine ammonia-lyase, trans-cinnamate-4-hydroxylase, chalcone synthase, chalcone isomerase, and cinnamyl-alcohol dehydrogenase. Selenite significantly increased phenolic acids and flavonoids, which contributed to the alleviation of selenite-induced stress...
