Purification and characterization of a new fibrinolytic enzyme of Bacillus licheniformis KJ-31, isolated from Korean traditional Jeot-gal.
TLDR
The amidolytic activity of bpKJ-31 was inhibited by 1 mM phenylmethanesulfonyl fluoride, but 1 mM EDTA did not affect the enzyme activity, indicating that bp kJ- 31 is an alkaline serine protease, like a plasmin. Expand
Enzymatic synthesis and characterization of hydroquinone galactoside using Kluyveromyces lactis lactase.
TLDR
Results indicate that HQ-Gal may be a suitable functional component in the cosmetics industry after being synthesized by the reaction of lactase (beta-galactosidase) from Kluyveromyces lactis, Aspergillus oryzae, Bacillus circulans, and Thermus sp. Expand
Molecular cloning and biochemical characterization of a heat-stable type I pullulanase from Thermotoga neapolitana.
TLDR
These findings suggest that the pullulanase from T. neapolitana is the first thermostable type I pullULanase which has α-1,6-transferring activity. Expand
Cloning and sequence analysis of a novel metalloprotease gene from Vibrio parahaemolyticus 04.
TLDR
The identification of a new metalloprotease gene expands the role of Vibrio metalliproteases as a virulence factor for host infection. Expand
Isolation of an Exopolysaccharide-producing Bacterium, Sphingomonas sp. CS101, Which Forms an Unusual Type of Sphingan
An exopolysaccharide-producing Gram negative bacterium was isolated and determined to be a Sphingomonas sp. (CS101). A sugar composition analysis of an exopolysaccharide indicated that theExpand
Antitumor activity of levan polysaccharides from selected microorganisms.
TLDR
During the in vivo analysis of inhibitory activity of the levans against Sarcoma-180 growth, M-, R- and Z-levans showed strong antitumor activity (average 66%) but G-levan (42%) had significantly lower activity. Expand
Site-directed mutagenesis of the active site glutamate in human matrilysin: investigation of its role in catalysis.
TLDR
The similarity in the pH profiles for the mutant and wild-type enzymes indicates that the ionization of Glu-198 is not responsible for the acidic pKa, and the role of GLU-198 in catalysis may be to stabilize the transition state or act as a general acid catalyst after the rate-determining step.

Production of tagatose by a recombinant thermostable l-arabinose isomerase from Thermus sp. IM6501
A gene (thaI) corresponding to l-arabinose isomerase from Thermus strain IM6501 was cloned by PCR. It comprised 1488 nucleotides and encoded a polypeptide of 496 residues with a predicted molecularExpand
Isomaltulose production via yeast surface display of sucrose isomerase from Enterobacter sp. FMB-1 on Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
The gene encoding sucrose isomerase from Enterobacter sp. FMB-1 species (ESI) was displayed on the cell surface of Saccharomyces cerevisiae EBY100 using a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchorExpand
Enzymatic synthesis of fructosyl oligosaccharides by levansucrase from Microbacterium laevaniformans ATCC 15953
Abstract Levansucrase from Microbacterium laevaniformans ATCC 15953 produced in a 3% sucrose medium was purified to homogeneity from cell-free extracts by ammonium sulfate precipitation,Expand
