The purpose of this page is to post the recent articles that we in the Stephanopoulos group review in our nearly-weekly literature review presentations. Sometimes the presenter focuses on a particular paper, and sometimes the roughly one-hour talk gives a brief overview of an important series of related papers.
27 April 2006: Curt Fischer
Curt presented a recent PNAS article  which explicated a newly-discovered operon in E. coli. This operon encodes a previously unreported pathway for uracil degradation, which ends in the excretion of 3-hydroxypropionic acid in the medium. He also briefly mentioned two other recent high-profile papers on nitrogen metabolism--one reported the genome sequence of a anaerobic ammonium oxidizing bacterium and hypthesized the full structure of this metabolic pathway , and the other presents laborious and careful analysis carbon utilization of non-thermophilic archaea living in medium-depth oceanic waters. These bacteria fix inorganic carbon and oxidize nitrogen, and are probably major players in the global nitrogen cycle.
