A novel esterase from Bacillus subtilis (RRL 1789): purification and characterization of the enzyme.

Abstract

An esterase (EC 3.1.1.1) produced by an isolated strain of Bacillus subtilis RRL 1789 exhibited moderate to high enantioselectivity in the kinetic resolution of several substrates like aryl carbinols, hydroxy esters, and halo esters. The enzyme named as B. subtilis esterase (BSE), was purified to >95% purity with a specific activity of 944 U/mg protein and… (More)
