A codon-optimized Escherichia coli appA phytase gene was synthesized and expressed in Pichia pastoris. Two residue substitutions (Q258N, Q349N) were sequentially introduced to enhance its glycosylation activity. Secretion of appA-Q258N/Q349N was approx. 0.3 mg ml−1 and enzyme activity reached 1,030 U ml−1. Purified appA-Q258N/Q349N had a specific activity(More)
A Bacillus sp.YCJS strain showing phytase activity was isolated, and the phytase-encoding gene was cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli. The 1,149-bp full-length gene encoded a 26-residue putative signal peptide and a 356-residue mature protein. The molecular weight was estimated to be 47.5 kDa by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel(More)
