A novel halophilic, alkalithermostable lipase LipR2 from Alkalispirillum sp. NM-ROO2 was cloned and expressed. LipR2 was covalently immobilized on Florisil® functionalized with glutaraldehyde. Protein binding efficiency of functionalized Florisil® was 94.7%. Immobilized LipR2 retained 97.5% of specific activity of the...

Mycobacteriophages possess different sets of lytic enzymes for disruption of the complex cell envelope of the mycobacteria host cells and release of the viral progeny. Lysin B (LysB) enzymes are mycolylarabinogalactan esterases that cleave the ester bond between the arabinogalactan...

Relatively poor heterologous protein yields have limited the commerical applications of Galactomyces geotrichum lipase I (GGl I) efficacy trials. To address this, we have redesigned the GGl I gene to preferentially match codon frequencies of Pichia pastoris (P. pastoris) while retaining...
