|Title:||Purification And Characterization Of A New Transglutaminase From Streptomyces Sp. Isolated In Brazilian Soil|
|Abstract:||A new microbial transglutaminase (MTGase or MTG, EC 188.8.131.52) from a Streptomyces sp. strain isolated from Brazilian soil samples was purified and characterized. Enzyme purification was fast and simple, consisting of two successive chromatographies on Sephadex G-75 columns with yields of 48 and 17%, respectively. The protein purification was successfully achieved to electrophoretical homogeneity on sodium dodecyl sulphate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The molecular mass of the MTGase was estimated to be about 45kDa. The enzyme exhibited optimal activity in the pH range of 6.0-6.5 and at 35-40C. It was stable over a broad pH range (4.5-8.0) and up to 45C. The purified MTG's activity was independent of Ca +2, but was activated by the presence of K +, Ba 2+, Na +, and Co 2+, and inhibited by Cu 2+ and Hg 2+, which suggests a thiol group at its active site. The purified enzyme presented a K m of 6.37mM and a V max of 1.7U/mL. © 2011 Wiley Periodicals, Inc..|
