Abstract:

H4 strain isolated from Lake Bogoria was found to be Bacillus halodurans. The Bacteria produced an extracellular peptidase activity toward substrates Ile-pNA, Met-pNA and Val-pNA. It also hydrolyzed small peptides. A purification procedure including ion-exchange chromatography ion exchange DEAE and sizeexclusion chromatography followed by Sodium dodecyl sulphate-polyacrymalide gel electrophoresis (SDSPAGE) revealed the aggregated form of the enzyme. The three substrates are hydrolyzed by a single catalytic site. The enzyme inactivated by bestatin, and 1,10-phenanthroline is a metalloaminopeptidase whose activity is maximal at pH 9.0 and 65ºC.
