Abstract

Bacillus strains have been widely used for the production of fibrinolytic enzymes having role in the treatment of cardiovascular disorders. Purification and overproduction of such enzymes has increased their usage in medical fields including metalloproteinases with the ability to degrade extracellular matrix (ECM). Camelysin, a neutral metalloproteinase has been isolated from different species of bacteria like Bacillus cereus, Bacillus anthracis, and Bacillus thuringiensis with fibrinolytic, collagenolytic and actin degradation activity. This project successfully demonstrated the presence of 734-bp coding DNA sequence (CDS) encoding a 20.72331 kDa camelysin gene in local strain of Bacillus thuringiensis containing a signal peptide with cleavage site between residues 19 and 20. The sequence was submitted to GenBank (KT023597) and the sequence showed high homology with the camelysin protein of closely related Bacillus species. The alignment of related proteins through ClustalW displayed difference of four amino acids (“Q” replaced by “P” at position 169 and at position 182–184, “NQE” replaced by “HLK”) in the isolated protein. Comparison including structural and functional analysis of camelysin sequences isolated from different Bacillus species was carried out using different bioinformatics tools and software. The information would help in better understanding the properties of camelysin protein and its role in pathogenicity and clinical treatments.
