Tyrosine decarboxylase from Lactobacillus brevis: soluble expression and characterization.


Tyrosine decarboxylase (TDC, EC is an enzyme that catalyzes the decarboxylation of l-tyrosine to produce tyramine and CO2. In this study, a 1881-bp tdc gene from Lactobacillus brevis was cloned and heterologously expressed in Escherichia coli BL21 (DE3). Glucose was discovered to play an important role in the soluble expression of rLbTDC. After… (More)
