Identification of an Escherichia coli periplasmic acid phosphatase containing of a 27 kDa-polypeptide component.


An acid phosphatase containing a 27-kDa polypeptide component has been identified in Escherichia coli by means of a zymogram technique. The enzyme is secreted in the periplasmic space and is able to hydrolyze several organic phosphate esters, but not diesters, showing preferential activity on p-nitrophenyl phosphate and other phenolic phosphate esters… (More)
