- An endochitinase was previously purified and the gene was cloned from the psychrophilic Antarctic bacterium,Sanguibacter antarcticus (KCTC 13143). In the present study, recombinant endochitinase,rChi21702, was expressed using a yeast expression system (Pichia pastoris) and codon optimization. The expressed rChi21702 was purified by Phenyl-Sepharose column chromatography. Optimal expression yielded 1-mg purified enzyme from 1-L bioreactor culture. When p-NP-(GlcNAc)2 was used as a substrate, the specific activity of the enzyme was determined to be 20 U/mg. In vitro assays and thin-layer chromatography demonstrated that the recombinant enzyme has endochitinase activity that produces diacetyl-chitobiose as a dominant end product when chitooligomers, colloidal chitin, and the chromogenic p-NP-(GlcNAc)2 are used as substrates. Optimal activity for rChi21702 was observed at 37oC and a pH of 7.6. Interestingly, rChi21702 exhibited 63% of optimal activity at 10oC and 44% activity at 0oC. Taken together, the results indicate that rChi21702 has psychrotolerant endochitinase activity even after recombinant expression in yeast cells.
