Expression of the tpr protease gene of Porphyromonas gingivalis is regulated by peptide nutrients.

Abstract

The Tpr protease of Porphyromonas gingivalis W83 is a membrane-associated enzyme capable of hydrolyzing chromogenic substrates for trypsin and bacterial collagenases. A previous study by us indicated that Tpr expression was increased under conditions of nutrient limitation. In the present study, we further characterized expression of the tpr gene using a… (More)
