Abstract: The gene for D-aminopeptidase (dap) has been isolated from the bacterium Ochrobactrum anthropi SCRC C1-38 [Asano, Y., Nakazawa, A., Kato, Y., & Kondo, K. (1989) J. Biol. Chem. 264, 14233-14239] and its nucleotide sequence determined. An expression plasmid pC138DP (4.5 kb) was constructed by placing the gene downstream of the lac promoter of pUC19. The amount of the enzyme in the cell-free extract of Escherichia coli JM109/pC138DP was elevated to 288,000 units/L of culture, which is about 3600-fold over that of…
