As a therapeutic agent in thrombosis the fibrinolytic enzymes are of interest and the search for a new enzyme continues. A strong fibrin-specific fibrinolytic enzyme was purified from the cell-free spent broth of thermophilic Streptomyces megasporus strain SD5. The crude enzyme was concentrated using ammonium sulphate, dialysis and lyophilization.(More)
An extracellular alpha-amylase (1,4-alpha D-glucan glucan hydrolase; EC 3.2.1.1) was isolated from the cell free broth of Streptomyces megasporus SD12 grown in glucose, soluble starch and raw starch. The enzyme was purified 55-fold with a specific activity of 847.33 U mg-1 of protein and with a yield of 36% activity. The apparent molecular mass of the(More)
Thermostable alkaline metalloprotease (EC 3.4.24.4), a simple protein of very low molecular mass (11 kDa), was isolated and purified from the cell free broth of Streptomyces diastaticus sp SS1 by concentration, (NH4)2SO4 precipitation and affinity chromatography over casein. The isoelectric point of the protease is 7.2. The temperature and pH optima for the(More)
A thermophilic Streptomyces megasporus strain SD5, could secrete a new fibrinolytic (actinokinase) at 55 degrees C. The gene (ackS) encoding actinokinase was isolated from the chromosomal DNA of S. megasporus SD5 and cloned in different hosts and vectors. The expression was obtained in E. coli JM109 using Cla I linearized pBR322 as vector (pSR 500). The(More)

Characterization of partially purified aryl monooxygenase (1:14:14:1) from Candida pulcherrima MCMY2 was achieved using standard purification protocol. The molecular weight of the enzyme was 110 kDa and contained 3 subunits with pI 5.7, 7.4 and 7.6. The activity seemed to be related with pulcherrimin. The optimum pH and temperature for enzyme activity were(More)
Three main enzymes, responsible for bioconversion of 1,3 dinitrobenzene (m-DNB) by Micrococcus colpogenes MCM B 410, were isolated from the sonicated cell mass, grown in presence of m-DNB in a synthetic medium, for 7 days. The soluble proteins were separated by differential precipitation and also separated by native PAGE. Each fraction obtained from both(More)
A synthetic aromatic polymer has been used for preparing replicas of different microorganisms. This method of preparing highly concentrated (9.6 k) microbiological samples for scanning electron microscopy was compared with a standard method. The micrographs of the replicated samples are satisfactory. This method is rapid, cost effective and produces good(More)

A partial genomic library was prepared in E. coli JM109 using pBR322 as vector and 2.4 kb Sau 3A I chromosomal fragment, encoding a nitroaryl reductase (nbr A) gene, from Streptomyces aminophilus strain MCMB 411. From the library, 2.4 kb fragment was recloned in E. coli JM109 and S. lividans TK64 using pUC18 and pIJ702 as vectors respectively. The(More)
The seed testing laboratories of Maharashtra discard 10 tonnes of grains and oil seeds treated with pesticides per annum. These agricultural wastes could be converted to reducing sugar and ethanol in a two stage semicontinuous fluidised bed bioreactor containing immobilised, Bacillus sp. and Zymomonas mobilis in the 1st stage and Saccharomyces diastaticus(More)
Micrococcus colpogenes MCM B 410, indigenous to soil, collected from nitro aromatic contaminated site, could transform 1,3 dinitrobenzene (m-DNB) initially to m-nitroaniline, m-nitrophenol, m-aminophenol and resorcinol at 30 degrees C under shake culture condition. Carbon mineralization studies with unlabelled and radio labelled 1,3 (U14 C) dinitrobenzene(More)
