  • Abstract Cell suspensions of Micrococcus sodonensis (ATCC 11880) secrete 7 to 10 individual proteins including an alkaline phosphatase, a nuclease, and a protease. The appearance of enzyme activities in the extracellular medium is dependent on the co-secretion of at least one of several polysaccharides also elaborated by these cells. This conclusion is based on the following observations: (a) bacitracin, an inhibitor of polysaccharide biosynthesis, proportionately inhibits polysaccharide and… CONTINUE READING
