CARMEN - Comparative Analysis and in silico Reconstruction of organism-specific MEtabolic Networks

J. Schneider, Vorhölter, F. - J., Trost, E., Blom, J., Musa, Y. R., Neuweger, H., Niehaus, K., Schatschneider, S., Tauch, A., and Goesmann, A., CARMEN - Comparative Analysis and in silico Reconstruction of organism-specific MEtabolic Networks, vol. 9, pp. 1660-1672, 2010.

New sequencing technologies provide ultra-fast access to novel microbial genome data. For their interpretation, an efficient bioinformatics pipeline that facilitates in silico reconstruction of metabolic networks is highly desirable. The software tool CARMEN performs in silico reconstruction of metabolic networks to interpret genome data in a functional context.

Structural model and ligand interactions of the Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri oligopeptide-binding protein

A. Moutran, Balan, A., Ferreira, L. C. S., Giorgetti, A., Tramontano, A., and Ferreira, R. C. C., Structural model and ligand interactions of the Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri oligopeptide-binding protein, vol. 6, pp. 1169-1177, 2007.

The oligopeptide-binding protein, OppA, ushers oligopeptide substrates to the membrane-associated oligopeptide permease (Opp), a multi-component ABC-type transporter involved in the uptake of oligopeptides by several bacterial species. In the present study, we report a structural model and an oligopeptide docking analysis of the OppA protein expressed by Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri (X. citri), the etiological agent of citrus canker.
