was isolated from flour mill wastes. It produced a thermostable α-amylase in complex media containing starch. Amylase activity was optimal at the exponential phase and was more strongly expressed with sorghum, yam peel and corn starch than soluble potato starch. The enzyme was purified 24-fold to a specific activity of 2200 U mg−1, with a yield of 10%. It(More)
Site-directed mutagenesis of nonribosomal peptide synthetase (NRPS) adenylation (A) domains was investigated as a means to engineer new calcium-dependent antibiotics (CDA) in Streptomyces coelicolor. Single- and double-point mutants of the CDA NRPS module 7, A-domain were generated, which were predicted to alter the specificity of this domain from Asp to(More)
