Scientists sequence genome of the N2-fixing, soil-living bacterium Azotobacter vinelandii
...ree known oxygen-sensitive nitrogenases, as well as the genes that code for other oxygen-sensitive enzymes such as carbon-monoxide dehydrogenase and a formate
dehydrogenase. The sequence also provided important information on the genes that code for alginate, a polymer that further protects the organism from...

New clues to how proteins dissolve and crystallize
...s paper and had a brainstorm," says Uejio. "He wanted me to use liquid microjet technology to measure the selective binding of sodium and potassium to formate
and acetate, two simple carboxylate groups characteristic of proteins. At that hour, all I had on hand were acetic acid and sodium chloride and potass...
