Cloning and nucleotide sequence of the Vibrio proteolyticus aminopeptidase gene.


PMID 1627651

Abstract

The gene encoding the Vibrio proteolyticus aminopeptidase was cloned and sequenced and its amino acid sequence was deduced. The gene encodes a 54 kDa protein, larger than the previously reported size of 30 kDa for the purified aminopeptidase. Sequence alignments revealed a 43-45% homology with two other Vibrio sp. extracellular proteinases.
