The members of the genus Bacillus produce a wide variety of secondary metabolites with antimetabolic and pharmacological activities. Most of these metabolites are small peptides that have unusual components and chemical bonds and synthesized nonribosomally by multifunctional enzyme complexes called peptide synthetases. Bacilysin, being produced and excreted by certain strains of Bacillus subtilis, is one of the simplest peptide antibiotics known. It is a dipeptide with an N-terminal Lalanine and an unusual amino acid, L-anticapsin, at its C-terminal. Recently, ywfBCDEF operon of B. subtilis 168 was shown to carry bacilysin biosynthesis function, the genes of this operon were renamed as bacABCDE. The first member of bac operon, bacA gene was proved to encode the function of L-alanine –L-anticapsin amino acid ligation. Bacilysin production is regulated at different levels, negatively by GTP via the transcriptional regulator CodY and AbrB while positive regulation occurs by guanosine 5‟-diphosphate 3‟-diphosphate (ppGpp) as well as a quorumsensing mechanism through the peptide pheromone PhrC. This study aims to identify the functional role of bacilysin biosynthesis in the regulatory cascade operating in B. subtilis by employing proteome-wide analysis of the bacilysin producer B. subtilis PY79 and its bacilysin nonproducer derivative PY79 bacA::lacZ::erm which was recently constructed by our group. The identification of a total of 128 proteins which are differentially expressed in wild type PY79 and bacA inactive strains provided us with the knowledge of interaction of bacilysin biosynthesis with global regulatory pathways and the understanding of the effects of antibiotic production on the expression of the genes with unknown functions in B. subtilis.

Bacillus subtilis is a non-pathogenic, Gram-positive organism which is known for producing a broad range of secondary metabolites with pharmacological and antimicrobial activities. The dipeptide bacilysin is one of the many antibiotics synthesized by certain strains of B. subtilis, and it is composed of L-alanine and the non-proteinogenic amino acid L-anticapsin. Earlier silencing studies by our group have suggested that bacilysin acts as a pleiotropic molecule on its host. Therefore, the absence or lack of...

The members of the genus Bacillus produce a wide variety of secondary metabolites with antimetabolic and pharmacological activities. Bacilysin, being produced and excreted by certain strains of B. subtilis, is a dipeptide antibiotic composed of L-alanine and L-anticapsin which is synthesized enzymatically. As shown earlier by our research group, the expression of bacilysin biosynthetic operon (bacA) is relatively constant during the exponential growth, but increases during the transition between exponential...

Recombinant Bacillus species carrying subC gene encoding serine alkaline protease (SAP) enzyme were developed in order to increase the yield and selectivity in the bioprocess for SAP production. subC gene was amplified from the chromosomal DNA of the wild-type Bacillus licheniformis by using PCR technology; thereafter, subC gene was first cloned into the pRS316 E. coli yeast shuttle plasmid, then sub-cloned into the pHV1431 E. coli-Bacillus shuttle vector, and transferred to the host Bacillus species, i.e. ...
