Cyclic guanosine 3',5'-monophosphate in the dimorphic fungus Mucor racemosus.


:The dimorphic fungus Mucor racemosus was found to contain the cyclic nucleotide guanosine 3',5'-monophosphate (cGMP). Approximately equivalent amounts of the compound were found in ungerminated spores, yeastlike cells, and mycelia. Germinating spores contained severalfold higher amounts of cGMP than the other cell forms. cGMP levels did not change significantly during the morphogenetic conversion of yeast to mycelia. Added exogenous cGMP or the dibutyryl derivative did not influence cell morphology in any way and did not alter the effect that cyclic adenosine 3',5'-monophosphate has upon cell morphology.

  • In vitro sulfotransferase activity of NodH, a nodulation protein of Rhizobium meliloti required for host-specific nodulation.

    abstract::Early stages of nodulation involve the exchange of signals between the bacterium and the host plant. Bacterial nodulation (nod) genes are required for Rhizobium spp. to synthesize lipooligosaccharide morphogens, termed Nod factors. The common nod genes encode enzymes that synthesize the factor core structure, which is...
