This work is believed to be the first report on the physiological and biochemical characterization of alpha-l-rhamnosidases in lactic acid bacteria. A total of 216 strains representing 37 species and eight genera of food-grade bacteria were screened for alpha-l-rhamnosidase activity. The majority of positive bacteria (25 out of 35) were Lactobacillus plantarum strains, and activity of the L. plantarum strain NCC245 was examined in more detail. The analysis of alpha-l-rhamnosidase activity under… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

L-Rhamnose induction of Aspergillus nidulans α-L-rhamnosidase genes is glucose repressed via a CreA-independent mechanism acting at the level of inducer uptake

The A. nidulans rhaE gene encodes an α-L-rhamnosidase phylogenetically distant to those described in filamentous fungi, and its expression is regulated by a novel CreA-independent mechanism.

Evaluation and characterization of new α-L-rhamnosidase-producing yeast strains.

It was found that these isolates of yeast producing L-rhamnosidase have a great potential application for beverage quality enhancement, and can build a strong foundation of α-L- lusitaniae-producing yeast strains in the debittering of citrus juice.

Comparative genomics and functional analysis of rhamnose catabolic pathways and regulons in bacteria

Large-scale regulon inference using bioinformatics revealed remarkable variations in transcriptional regulators for L-Rha utilization genes among bacteria.

Characterization of Two Distinct Glycosyl Hydrolase Family 78 α-l-Rhamnosidases from Pediococcus acidilactici

Detailed kinetic data is presented on two novel rhamnosidases from Pediococcus acidilactici DSM 20284, probably representing two subclasses within GH 78, which could be relevant for the further study of bacterial glycosidases.

Purification and Characterization of α-L-rhamnosidase from Bacillus amyloliquefaciens –D1

The effects of mental activity found showed that Fe2+ and NaCl were strong activators, while KCL and Cu2+ was a strong inhibitor of the rhamnosidase enzyme production, which will help in citrus processing and bioprocess industries.



Purification and Characterization of Two Different α-l-Rhamnosidases, RhaA and RhaB, fromAspergillus aculeatus

ABSTRACT Two proteins exhibiting α-l-rhamnosidase activity, RhaA and RhaB, were identified upon fractionation and purification of a culture filtrate from Aspergillus aculeatus grown on hesperidin.

Cloning, sequence analysis, and expression of the gene encoding Sphingomonas paucimobilis FP2001 alpha-L -rhamnosidase.

RT-PCR analysis of rhaM mRNA indicated that the induction of alpha-L-rhamnosidase by the addition of L- rhamnose occurred on the transcriptional level, suggesting that rham is possibly a member of a new bacterial subfamily in glycoside hydrolase family 78 (alpha- L-Rhamnosidsase).

An alpha-L- rhamnosidase was purified 1500-fold from Bacteroides JY-6, an intestinal anaerobic bacterium of human and was strongly inhibited by L-rhamnose, L-fucose, saccharic acid 1,4-lactone, p-chlormercuriphenylsulfonic acid and Pb2+.

Characterization of alpha-L-rhamnosidase of Bacillus sp. GL1 responsible for the complete depolymerization of gellan.

The alpha-l-rhamnosidase is found to be responsible as the final enzyme for the complete depolymerization of gellan.

The thermostable α‐l‐rhamnosidase RamA of Clostridium stercorarium: biochemical characterization and primary structure of a bacterial α‐l‐rhamnoside hydrolase, a new type of inverting glycoside hydrolase

An α‐l‐rhamnosidase clone was isolated from a genomic library of the thermophilic anaerobic bacterium Clostridium stercorarium and its primary structure was determined, indicating a single displacement mechanism.

Purification and characterization of intracellular α-l-rhamnosidase from Pseudomonas paucimobilis FP2001

Examination of the substrate specificity using various synthetic and natural l-rhamnosyl glycosides showed that this enzyme had a relatively broader substrate specificity than those reported so far.

Production of Exopolysaccharide by Lactobacillus rhamnosus R and Analysis of Its Enzymatic Degradation during Prolonged Fermentation

The decrease in viscosities and molecular weights of EPS withdrawn at different cultivation times permitted us to suspect the presence of a depolymerizing enzyme in the fermentation medium, and the loss of viscosity was increased up to 33%.

Complete genome sequence of Lactobacillus plantarum WCFS1

The 3,308,274-bp sequence of the chromosome of Lactobacillus plantarum strain WCFS1, a single colony isolate of strain NCIMB8826 that was originally isolated from human saliva, has been determined, and contains 3,052 predicted protein-encoding genes, suggesting that these genes form a lifestyle adaptation region in the chromosome.
