Primary structure of nitrile hydratase deduced from the nucleotide sequence of a Rhodococcus species and its expression in Escherichia coli.


The nitrile hydratase (NHase) of Rhodococcus species N-774, which is composed of two subunits, alpha and beta, catalyzes the hydration of various nitrile compounds to the corresponding amides. The amino acid sequences of the NH2 termini and the fragments obtained by digesting each of the two subunits with lysyl endopeptidase were determined for preparation… (More)
