Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain 1001 produces an esterase (EstA) that can hydrolyse the racemic methyl ester of β-acetylthioisobutyrate to produce the (D)-enantiomer, which serves as a precursor of captopril, a drug used for treatment of hypertension. We show here that PA2949 from P. aeruginosa PA01, a homologue of EstA, can efficiently be expressed in an(More)
Five isolates designated as B45, D83A, A206A, A85 and E49 found to possess lipolytic activities were taxonomically classified on the basis of their phylogenetic, phenotypic and chemotaxonomic characteristics. The isolates were determined to be gram-negative, catalase and oxidase positive, hydrolyzing Tween 80 and 60 but not starch, need 3.5–4 M NaCl for(More)
