Purification and characterization of a fibrino(geno)lytic protease from cultured natural isolate of a cyanobacterium, Anabaena fertilissima


An isolate of the cyanobacterium Anabaena from paddy fields was cultured and identified as Anabaena fertilissima based on morphometric features and 16S rRNA gene sequence matching. Cell extracts prepared using bead beater hydrolyzed casein. The caseinolytic protease with native molecular mass of 49 kDa was purified using ammonium sulfate fractionation… (More)
