Abstract

Summary: An esterase gene () from a lipolytic psychrotroph ( sp. LS107d2), was cloned in and its nucleotide sequence was determined, revealing an ORF encoding a polypeptide of 389 amino acid residues, with a molecular mass of 42276 Da. Labelling of plasmid-encoded proteins with [S)methionine, using the maxicell procedure, gave a single polypeptide of molecular mass 42 kDa, consistent with that calculated from the ORF. Colonies of cells containing produced a clear halo when grown on solid media containing tributyrin; no clearance was produced when cells were grown on media containing triolein. Extracts of cells containing also hydrolysed water-soluble nitrophenol esters, but were unable to cleave water-insoluble substrates. The preference for water-soluble substrates indicates that the gene product is an esterase.
