Bacteriolytic enzymes produced by Myxococcus xanthus.

Abstract

The bacteriolytic activities in the culture fluid of Myxococcus xanthus were purified and separated into six active fractions by the use of Bio-Gel CM-2 and Bio-Gel P-60. These fractions were identified as: (i) an amidase, (ii) a glucosaminidase, (iii) a glucosaminidase and an amidase, (iv) a protease with probable amidase activity, (v) another protease with probable amidase activity, and (vi) a peptidase active on both d-alanyl-diaminopimelate and d-alanyl-lysine peptide bonds. On one occasion, another amidase was eluted from Bio-Gel CM. Preliminary studies on some characteristics of the enzymes and their production during growth are reported.
