Characterization of an inducible phenylserine aldolase from Pseudomonas putida 24-1.


An inducible phenylserine aldolase (L-threo-3-phenylserine benzaldehyde-lyase, EC, which catalyzes the cleavage of L-3-phenylserine to yield benzaldehyde and glycine, was purified to homogeneity from a crude extract of Pseudomonas putida 24-1 isolated from soil. The enzyme was a hexamer with the apparent subunit molecular mass of 38 kDa and… (More)
