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. Bacillus licheniformis, Bacillus alvei, Bacillus firmus, Bacillus cereus, Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus badius, Bacillus sphaericus and Bacillus coagulans. pHV1431::subC was transferred to B. licheniformis and B. coagulans by electroporation, and to the other six hosts by free-transformation. Bioreactor experiments were conducted with the wild-type and recombinant Bacillus species in order to compare their production potentials. By cloning the pHV1431::subC, SAP activity increased, 2-fold in r-B. licheniformis, 26- fold in r-B. alvei, 71- fold in r-B. badius, 51- fold in r-B. cereus, 32- fold in r-B. firmus, 33- fold in r-B. subtilis, 105- fold in r-B. sphaericus and 14- fold in r-B. coagulans, in a defined medium with glucose as the sole carbon source at t=43 h of the fermentations. Physiological differences and similarities between the wild-type and recombinant Bacillus species are discussed.

Oxygen-transfer strategy and its regulation effects in serine alkaline protease production by Bacillus licheniformis
Çalık, Pınar; Özdamar, Tunçer H. (2000-08-01)
The effects of oxygen transfer on the production and product distribution in serine alkaline protease (SAP) fermentation by Bacillus licheniformis and oxygen-transfer strategy in relation to the physiology of the bacilli were investigated on a defined medium with citric acid as sole carbon source in 3.5-dm(3) batch bioreactor systems. By forming a 3 x 3 matrix with the parameters air-inlet rates of Q(O)/V-R = 0.2, 0.5, 1.0 vvm, and agitation rates of N = 150, 500, 750 min(-1), the effects of oxygen transfer...
Proteome-wide analysis of the role of expression of bacilysin operon on idiophase physiology of B. Subtilis
Demir, Mustafa; Özcengiz, Gülay; Department of Biology (2013)
The members of the genus Bacillus produce a wide variety of secondary metabolites with antimetabolic and pharmacological activities. These metabolites are mostly small peptides and have unusual components and chemical bonds. These metabolites are synthesized nonribosomally by multifunctional enzyme complexes called peptide synthetases. One of those small peptides, bacilysin, is a dipeptide antibiotic composed of L-alanine and L-anticapsin which is produced and excreted by certain strains of Bacillus subtili...

Çalık, Pınar; Ozdamar, TH (Elsevier BV, 2003-12-02)
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. For this aim, subC gene was cloned into pHV1431 Escherichia coli-Bacillus shuttle vector, and transferred into nine host Bacillus species, i.e. B. alvei, B. amyloliquefaciens, B. badius, B. cereus, B. coagulans, B. firmus, B. licheniformis, B. sphaericus and B. subtilis. The influence of the host Bacillus species on SAP product...
Fermentation and oxygen transfer characteristics in serine alkaline protease production by recombinant Bacillus subtilis in molasses-based complex medium
Calik, G; Pehlivan, N; Ozcelik, IS; Çalık, Pınar; Ozdamar, TH (Wiley, 2004-11-01)
Serine alkaline protease (SAP) production in a complex medium based on physically pretreated molasses by recombinant Bacillus subtilis carrying pHV1431::subC gene is described. The effects of oxygen transfer were investigated in 3.5 dm(3) bioreactor systems with controls for agitation rate, dissolved oxygen, pH, temperature, and foam formation under two different agitation rates, ie N = 500 and 750 min(-1), and four different air flow rates, ie Q/V-R = 0.2, 0.5, 0.7, and 1.0 vvm, at a molasses concentration...
Proteome-wide analysis of the functional roles of bacilysin biosynthesis in Bacillus subtilis
Özcengiz, Gülay; Demir, Mustafa; Karatas, Ayten Yazgan (2014-07-01)
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 ...
