Transglutaminase (TGase) is widely used in the food industry for improving protein properties by catalyzing the cross-linking of proteins. In Streptomyces, TGase is secreted as a zymogen, and an activation process has been observed in liquid culture. However, the activation mechanism remains unclear. In the present study, the TGase activation process in Streptomyces hygroscopicus was investigated by biochemical approaches. In a liquid culture, Pro-TGase was secreted and gradually was converted… CONTINUE READING
