Expression and purification of a recombinant enantioselective amidase.


Microbacterium sp. AJ115 metabolises a wide range of nitriles using the two-step nitrile hydratase/amidase pathway. In this study, the amidase gene of Microbacterium sp. AJ115 has been inserted into the pCal-n-EK expression vector and expressed in Escherichia coli BL21(DE3)pLysS. The expressed protein is active in E. coli and expression of the amidase gene… (More)
