Short communication: Improving the activity of bile salt hydrolases in Lactobacillus casei based on in silico molecular docking and heterologous expression.


Bile salt hydrolase (BSH) plays an essential role in the cholesterol-removing effect of lactic acid bacteria, which hydrolyze conjugated bile salts to amino acid and deconjugated bile salts. However, Lactobacillus casei lacks the bsh gene, which may make it highly sensitive to bile salt stress. We wanted to improve the BSH activity of L. casei for various… (More)
