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 bacilysin would affect the host response. In this study, data from previous proteomic studies by our group on bacilysin-deleted derivative strain Bacillus subtilis OGU1 have been collected. We constructed time-dependent secretome and cytosolic proteome networks by using the Prize-collecting Steiner forest (PCSF) algorithm. Functional enrichment analyses on the resulting networks have confirmed our earlier findings, as well as revealing further hidden molecules including CcpA, BglH, HxlA and YwmD, along with pathways such as amino acid metabolism, ABC transporters, sugar metabolism, and one carbon pool by folate. Biological network modelling can facilitate the identification of unknown protein interactions, as well as interaction partners in organisms such as Bacillus subtilis under a particular condition, in addition to guiding further experiments.

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 ...

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...
