We found glutamate racemase activity in cell extracts of Bacillus subtilis IFO 3336, which abundantly produces poly-gamma-glutamate. The highest activity was obtained in the early stationary phase of growth. The racemase was purified to homogeneity. The enzyme was a monomer with a molecular mass of about 30 kDa and required no cofactor. It almost exclusively catalyzed the racemization of glutamate; other amino acids, including alanine and aspartate but not homocysteinesulfinate, were inactive… CONTINUE READING
