The gene CP0718 encoding a putative manganese-containing superoxide dismutase of Chlamydia pneumoniae AR39 was cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli. Characterization showed that the expressed protein with a monomeric molecular mass of 23.1 kDa had superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity and the cofactor of CpSOD was a bivalent manganese cation. It is unexpected that this enzyme was hyperthermostable, and maintained about 90% activity after incubation at 70 degrees C for 60 min. Manganese… CONTINUE READING
