ABSTRACT An extracellular protein with strong absorption at 406 nm was purified from cell-free culture fluid of latex-grown Xanthomonas sp. strain 35Y. This protein was identical to the gene product of a recently characterized gene cloned from Xanthomonas sp., as revealed by determination of m/z values and sequencing of selected isolated peptides obtained after trypsin fingerprint analysis. The purified protein degraded both natural rubber latex and chemosynthetic poly(cis-1,4-isoprene) in… Expand
Latex Clearing Protein—an Oxygenase Cleaving Poly(cis-1,4-Isoprene) Rubber at the cis Double Bonds
TLDR
It was demonstrated that active Lcp1VH2 is a Cu(II)-containing oxygenase that exhibits a conserved domain of unknown function which cannot be detected in any other hitherto-characterized enzyme, suggesting that this domain might represent a new protein family of oxygenases. Expand
Heme-Dependent Rubber Oxygenase RoxA of Xanthomonas sp. Cleaves the Carbon Backbone of Poly(cis-1,4-Isoprene) by a Dioxygenase Mechanism
TLDR
Based on the labeling results and the presence of two hemes in RoxA, a model of the enzymatic cleavage mechanism of poly(cis-1,4-isoprene) is proposed and it is proposed that RoxA cleaves rubber by a dioxygenase mechanism. Expand
Characterization of the latex clearing protein of the poly(cis-1,4-isoprene) and poly(trans-1,4-isoprene) degrading bacterium Nocardia nova SH22a.
TLDR
It is shown that LcpSH22a-contrary to other already characterized rubber cleaving enzymes-is responsible for the initial cleavage of both polyisoprene isomers. Expand

TLDR
The current knowledge of genes and enzymes for the isoprene rubber-cleavage enzymes including LCP and RoxA/RoxB from gram-positive and gram-negative rubber-utilizing bacteria, respectively are summarized. Expand
Spectroscopic properties of rubber oxygenase RoxA from Xanthomonas sp., a new type of dihaem dioxygenase.
TLDR
RoxA is a novel type of dihaem dioxygenase with features clearly different from classical cytochrome c peroxidases, and it is presented that RoxA is able to subtract redox equivalents from its substrate or from model compounds. Expand
Structure of the processive rubber oxygenase RoxA from Xanthomonas sp
TLDR
RoxA incorporates both oxygen atoms of its cosubstrate dioxygen into the rubber cleavage product ODTD, and it is shown that RoxA is isolated with O2 stably bound to the active site heme iron. Expand
Rubber Oxygenase and Latex Clearing Protein Cleave Rubber to Different Products and Use Different Cleavage Mechanisms
TLDR
RoxA and Lcp represent two different answers to the same biochemical problem, the cleavage of polyisoprene, a polymer that has carbon-carbon double bonds as the only functional groups for enzymatic attack. Expand
Crystallization of the extracellular rubber oxygenase RoxA from Xanthomonas sp. strain 35Y.
Rubber oxygenase A (RoxA) from Xanthomonas sp. strain 35Y is an extracellular dioxygenase that is capable of cleaving the double bonds of poly(cis-1,4-isoprene) into short-chain isoprene units withExpand

Sequence analysis of a gene product synthesized by Xanthomonas sp. during growth on natural rubber latex.
TLDR
Blast analysis confirmed the relatedness of the 70 kDa protein to heme-containing oxidases and suggested that it is a member of a new family of relatively large extracellular proteins with so far unknown function being only far related in amino acid sequence to P. denitrificans and P. aeruginosa CCPs.

TLDR
The reduction of the average molecular mass of solution-cast films of natural rubber from 640000 to 25000 in liquid culture upon bacterial growth indicates the participation of an endo-cleavage mechanism of degradation. Expand
