Abstract

The 168 gene encodes a chitosanase. It was found that transcription of the gene was temporally regulated and was not subject to metabolic repression. Chitosanase synthesis was abolished in a mutant strain. Csn was overproduced in , partially purified and characterized. The deduced amino acid sequence, , and optimal pH and temperature of the enzyme were closer to those of a chitosanase from sp. N174 than to those of chitosanases from other strains.
