Secondary Sugars(metabolism/sugar/bacteria/Lac Operon)

... sure why I can't edit the above part, but I stumbled across something that seemed to be of use; that secondary sugars might be sugars the require cAMP and CRP to be the effector of the operon(along with the operon inducer of course). Since gallactose is what the cell wants the most then the other ...

cAMP 2nd Messenger Pathway and Experiments

... mixture was: cell membranes from cyc-, protein extracts from cyc+, and hormone, ATP, GTP, and Mg2+. Results were that upon hormone stimulation, cAMP was produced. Experiment 2: The membranes of the cyc- cells were mixed with protein extracts from the cyc+ cells. However, the protein extract ...

cellular mechanisms that result in symptoms of cholera

... exposes its active site, allowing it to permanently ribosylate the Gs alpha subunit of the heterotrimeric G protein. This results in constitutive cAMP production, which in turn leads to secretion of H2O, Na+, K+, Cl−, and HCO3− into the lumen of the small intestine and rapid dehydration. The gene ...
