Abstract

The enzymes of microorganisms that live in cold environments must be able to function at ambient temperatures. Cold-adapted enzymes generally have less ordered structures that convey a higher catalytic rate, but at the cost of lower thermodynamic stability. In this study, we characterized P355, a novel intracellular subtilisin protease (ISP) derived from the genome of Planococcus halocryophilus Or1, which is a bacterium metabolically active down to -25°C. P355's stability and activity at varying pH values, temperatures, and salt concentrations, as well as its temperature-dependent kinetics, were determined and compared to an uncharacterized thermophilic ISP (T0099) from Parageobacillus thermoglucosidasius, a previously characterized ISP (T0034) from Planococcus sp. AW02J18, and Subtilisin Carlsberg (SC). The results showed that P355 was the most heat-labile of these enzymes, closely followed by T0034. P355 and T0034 exhibited catalytic constants (k cat ) that were much higher than those of T0099 and SC. Thus, both P355 and T0034 demonstrate the characteristics of the stability-activity trade-off that has been widely observed in cold-adapted proteases.
