A yeast isolate able to produce high levels of extracellular α-amylase was selected from a collection of 385 yeasts and identified as Wickerhamia sp. by the sequence of the D1/D2 domain of the 26 S rDNA gene. Part of the nucleotide sequence of the amy1-W gene was cloned, and a sequence of 191 amino acids deduced from this gene was analyzed. The peptide(More)
Since a decade, Escherichia coli has been considered an important nosocomial pathogen due to the high number of isolates multiresistant to antimicrobials reported worldwide. In clinical and environmental strains, transposons, plasmids, and integrons are currently considered the principal genetic elements responsible for the acquisition of antibiotic(More)
Intracellular proteases of Yarrowia lipolytica have been scarcely studied. These enzymes may play an important role in nitrogen metabolism, posttranslational processing, nutritional stress, dimorphism, etc.; biochemical and genetic control of these enzymes can help in obtaining high-level expression of recombinant proteins in heterologous systems. In this(More)
The alkaline α-amylase produced by Texcoconibacillus texcoconensis 13CCT strain was identified by random mutagenesis and confirmed by directed mutagenesis. A transposon mutagenesis approach was taken to identify the gene responsible for the degradation of starch in T. texcoconensis 13CCT strain. The deduced amino acids of the amy gene had a 99 % similarity(More)
