    An endospore-forming bacterium, strain B16, was isolated from a soil sample and identified as a Bacillus sp. The strain presented remarkable nematotoxic activity against nematode Panagrellus redivivus. The crude extracellular protein extract from culture supernatant of the bacteria killed about...

    Lecanicillium psalliotae produced an extracellular protease (Ver112) which was purified to apparent homogeneity giving a single band on SDS-PAGE with a molecular mass of 32 kDa. The optimum activity of Ver112 was at pH 10 and 70 °C (over 5 min). The purified protease degraded a broad range of...

    Serine proteases are involved in a variety of biological processes and are classified into clans sharing structural homology. Although various three-dimensional structures of SC clan proteases have been experimentally determined, they are mostly bacterial and animal proteases, with some from...

    Background: Subtilisin-like serine proteases play an important role in pathogenic fungi during the penetration and colonization of their hosts. In this study, we perform an evolutionary analysis of the subtilisin-like serine protease genes of subphylum Pezizomycotina to find if there are similar...
