Immunochemical analysis of the following purified preparations of Bacillus pumilus RNase (binase) was carried out: industrially manufactured enzyme (Institute of Organic Synthesis, Riga, Latvia) and the enzymes isolated from the culture liquid of the native B. pumilus producer and from the Escherichia coli BL21 recombinant strain bearing the pGEMGX1/ent/Bi(More)
Binase, the RNAse from Bacillus pumilus, is an endonuclease that cleaves the phosphodiester bond between the 3′-guanyl residue and 5′-OH residue of an adjacent nucleotide, with the formation of a corresponding intermediate, 2′,3′-cGMP. Subsequent hydrolysis of 2′,3′-cGMP into a 3′-phosphate is highly specific and proceeds slowly. Thus, a question arises in(More)
Mycoplasmas are incapable of de novo synthesis of nucleotides and must therefore secrete nucleases in order to replenish the pool of nucleic acid precursors. The nucleolytic activity of mycoplasmas is an important factor in their pathogenicity. Bacterial ribonucleases (RNases) may produce a broad spectrum of biological effects, including antiviral and(More)
