Streptomyces sp. CS-57, which was isolated from Korean soil, was found to produce phospholipase D (PLD57) as an extracellular enzyme when cultured in medium containing 2% glucose, 1.5% yeast extract, 0.5% trypton, and 0.1% calcium carbonate at 28 degrees C, and 160-rpm. PLD57 was purified using Sepharose CL-6B column chromatography, and DEAE-Sepharose CL-6B ion exchange column chromatography. The specific activity of the purified enzyme increased 6.7 fold with 3% recovery. The purified enzyme was then analyzed using 12% SDS-PAGE, which revealed that the molecular mass of the purified enzyme was 55 kDa. PLD57 showed both hydrolytic (H) and transphosphatidylation (T) activity, and the optimum temperatures of these activities were found to be 45 degrees C and 35 degrees C, respectively. Similarly, both of these activities were found to be optimal at a pH of 7.5. In addition, even after being heat treated at 45 degrees C for up to 2 h, the enzyme activity remained at 100%, and the H-activity was found to be stable at a pH of 6 to 8. Further, enzyme activity occurred in the presence of EDTA, indicating that metal ions are not required for their activity, although some metal ions did marginally increase the activity. Enzyme activity also increased by 75% in the presence of Triton-X 100 at a concentration of 0.375 %; however, none of the other detergents evaluated in this study were found to enhance enzyme activity.

    ABSTRACT: With the aim of isolating economically viable enzymes from a microbial source, a novel phospholipase D (PLD) was purified from Streptomyces sp. CS684 (PLD(684)). PLD(684) had molecular weight of 29 kDa, which makes it the second smallest PLD reported so far. The enzyme activity was optimum at pH 6 and 45 degrees C, and enhanced by various detergents. It was stable from pH 7 to 9 and at or below 45 degrees C when assayed after 40 h and 2h, respectively. The K(m) and V(max) values for phosphatidylcholine were 1.16 mM and 1453.74 micromol min(-1)mg(-1), respectively. It catalyzed the transphosphatidylation of glycerol, but not that of l-serine, myo-inositol or ethanolamine. Low molecular weight PLD(684) with transphosphatidylation activity may be utilized in the industrial production of rare and commercially important phospholipids.

    ABSTRACT: Although phosphatidylserine synthase (PSS) from Escherichia coli is an ideal enzyme for phospholipid production, its application in the food industry has been limited because of the low PSS yield. In this study, the pss gene was cloned from E. coli K(12) and expressed in Bacillus subtilis DB104, and the recombinant PSS was characterized subsequently. PSS was purified to 39.59-fold, and the highest activity was detected as 13.62 U/mg. The enzyme was found to be stable in a pH range of 6.5-9.5, with optimal pH values of 8.0 for hydrolysis and 7.0 for transphosphatidylation, respectively. The optimal temperature for PSS activity was 35 degrees C. The enzyme activity could be detected after 1 h of heating at 65 degrees C. Among the detected detergents and metal ions, Triton X-100, Ca(2+), Mn(2+), and Co(2+) could improve PSS activity. The transformation of phosphatidylcholine to phosphatidylserine under PSS catalyzation was carried out in a biphasic system, which confirmed the actual catalyzing ability of the recombinant protein.

    ABSTRACT: A 60kDa phospholipase D (PLD) was obtained from Streptomyces olivochromogenes by one-step chromatography on Sepharose CL-6B. Maximal activity was at pH 8 and 75°C and the enzyme was stable from pH 7 to 13 and from 55 to 75°C. Thermal and pH stability with temperature optimum of the enzyme were highest among Streptomyces PLDs reported so far. The activity was Ca2+-dependent and enhanced by detergents. The Km and Vmax values for phosphatidylcholine were 0.6mM and 650μmolmin−1mg−1, respectively. In addition, the enzyme also revealed transphosphatidylation activity, which was optimum at pH 8 and 50°C. The first 15 amino acid residues of the N terminal sequence were ADYTPGAPGIGDPYY, which are significantly different from the other known PLDs. The enzyme may therefore be a novel PLD with potential application in the lipid industry.
