Transglutaminase (TGase), the only commercial enzyme in the food industry capable of introducing covalent bonds to proteins, is secreted as a zymogen (Pro-TGase) in several Streptomyces species. In previous studies, only a metalloprotease has been isolated from Streptomyces mobaraensis as an endogenous TGase-activating protease (TAP). In this study, not… CONTINUE READING
