Abstract

Bacterial sodium-dependent decarboxylases were the first enzymes exemplifying sodium-dependent bioenergetics. These enzyme complexes couple decarboxylation of organic acids with the export of sodium ions via a special membrane subunit. In 711 representative prokaryotic genomes, we have analyzed genomic neighborhoods of the genes that code the membrane subunit of sodium decarboxylases. In representatives of Thermotogae, the operons with the gene of this subunit lack the genes of subunits that perform non-oxidative decarboxylation. Instead, these operons contain the genes of alpha- and delta-subunits of decarboxylating oxidoreductases of alpha-ketoacids. The genes of beta- and gamma-subunits of the decarboxylating oxidoreductases were found within the genomes of respective Thermotogae species as separate, two-gene operons. We suggest that the described two operons code together for sodium-translocating decarboxylating oxidoreductases capable of coupling oxidative decarboxylation of alpha-ketoacids with the export of sodium ions, which is a novel type of bioenergetic coupling.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 15 June 2016.
All research outputs
#9,443,534
of 12,322,056 outputs
Outputs from Biochemistry (00062979)
#17,630
of 19,080 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#175,905
of 275,018 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Biochemistry (00062979)
#123
of 157 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,322,056 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 20th percentile – i.e., 20% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 19,080 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.8. This one is in the 6th percentile – i.e., 6% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 275,018 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 30th percentile – i.e., 30% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 157 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 16th percentile – i.e., 16% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
