Characterization of CpdC, a large-ring lactone-hydrolyzing enzyme from Pseudomonas sp. strain HI-70, and its use as a fusion tag facilitating overproduction of proteins in Escherichia coli.

ABSTRACT: There are few entries of carbon-carbon bond hydrolases (EC 3.7.1.-) in the ExPASy database. In microbes, these enzymes play an essential role in the metabolism of alicyclic or aromatic compounds as part of the global carbon cycle. CpdC is a ?-pentadecalactone hydrolase derived from the degradation pathway of cyclopentadecanol or cyclopentadecanone by Pseudomonas sp. strain HI-70. CpdC was purified to homogeneity and characterized. It is active as a dimer of 56,000 Da with a subunit molecular mass of 33,349. Although CpdC has the highest activity and reaction rate (kcat) toward ?-pentadecalactone, its catalytic efficiency favors lauryl lactone as a substrate. The melting temperature (Tm) of CpdC was estimated to be 50.9 ± 0.1°C. The half-life of CpdC at 35°C is several days. By virtue of its high level of expression in Escherichia coli, the intact CpdC-encoding gene and progressive 3'-end deletions were employed in the construction of a series of fusion plasmid system. Although we found them in inclusion bodies, proof-of-concept of overproduction of three microbial cutinases of which the genes were otherwise expressed poorly or not at all in E. coli was demonstrated. On the other hand, two antigenic proteins, azurin and MPT63, were readily produced in soluble form.
