special ecological reason for the presence of agarolytic bacteria in fresh water but that Identification of Medical Bacteria, 2nd edn. Cam-. Endolytic β-agarase Aga2 was identified from Cellulophaga omnivescoria W5C. SJP92 was shown to retain almost 90% of agarolytic activity under Recently, thermostable agarases from marine bacteria Flammeovirga sp. Abstract: Agarolytic bacteria use agarase to utilize agar as sole source of carbon. It is usually observed in life sciences labs that lot of agar medium needs to be.

As shown by the HPLC profile, the purified enzyme from strain N-1 hydrolyzed agar to give two main oligosaccharide products Fig. The activity was determined at a pH between 3.

In the presence of agar, glucose or galactose sgarolytic not affect the production of agarase in this strain data not shown. Previous results on the purification and characterization of an extracellular agarase from the agar-liquefying strain Alteromonas sp. Enzymatic hydrolysis of agar: Cleavage of structural proteins during the assembly of the head of bacteriophage T4.

Percentages are indicated by bootstraps replicates for neighbor-joining analysis; replicates for parsimony. At this step the enzyme eluted in the flowthrough, indicating that the strong binding seen at the beginning of the purification could be mediated by an unidentified extracellular component of this strain or by an agar-derived product that is separated during the gel filtration step.


The pH profile of agarase from strain N-1 was bell shaped, with a maximum at pH 7.

The type of flagellum was determined by negative staining with uranyl acetate and electron microscopy as described by Cole and Popkin Proteins were stained with Coomassie brilliant blue R We describe here the characterization of a new agarolytic bacterium isolated from the southern Chilean coast.

The isolation and characterization of agarolytic bacteria from a lowland river. Other biochemical and physiological tests were carried out essentially as described by Stolp and Gadkari 38 and Stanier et al.

Cell growth and activity measurements. Effect of carbon sources on bacterial growth and agarase production. In solid agar, this isolate produced a diffusible agarase that caused agar softening around the colonies.

The sequence of the 16S rDNA of strain N-1 was aligned with the sequences of a number of Pseudoalteromonas strains available and was analyzed essentially as described by Gauthier et al. Stolp H, Bacyeria D.

Manual of methods identificatikn general microbiology. Numerical taxonomy of aerobic, gram-negative bacteria associated with oysters and surrounding seawater of the mediterranean coast. The rDNA sequence of strain N-1 was compared to sequences available from public databases.


The highest level of agarase was reached during the stationary phase.

At cruder stages the enzyme was strongly bound to DEAE-cellulose, probably through binding to a negatively charged agar or other polysaccharide. Cleavage of the polysaccharide chains causes agar softening and allows faster evaporation of water, leading to the formation of depressions.
