Streptomyces transglutaminase (TGase) has been widely used in food, pharmaceutical and textile industries. Streptomyces TGase is naturally synthesized as zymogen (pro-TGase), which is then processed to produce active enzyme by removing its N-terminal pro-peptide. Although the pro-peptide is essential for TGase folding and secretion, few studies have been(More)
Streptomyces transglutaminase (TGase) is an important industrial enzyme that catalyzes cross-linking of proteins. It is secreted as a zymogene and then is activated by proteases under physiological conditions. Although the activation process of TGase has been well investigated, the physiological function of TGase in Streptomyces has not been revealed. In(More)
