Characterization of the activity of the spore cortex lytic enzyme CwlJ1.

Abstract

The germination enzyme CwlJ1 plays an important role in degrading the cortex during the germination of Bacillus anthracis spores. However, the specific function and catalytic activity of CwlJ1 remain elusive. Here we report for the first time a detailed in vitro mechanistic study of CwlJ1 expressed in Escherichia coli and its activity against the spore… (More)
