- To increase the fibrinolytic enzyme (nattokinase WRL101) in Bacillus subtilis WRL101, bovine fibrin or
fibrinogen (1.0%, w/v) were added in the tryptic soy broth as a substrate. The fibrinolytic activity
cultured in the fibrinogen-contained medium was increased. On the other hand, fibrin decreased the
activity. Using the medium condition, nattokinase WRL101 (fibrinogen-induced nattokinase WRL101,
FIN-WRL101) was isolated by commercial chromatographic techniques and its biochemical
characteristics were investigated. The molecular weight of FIN-WRL101 was estimated to be 29 kDa.
FIN-WRL101 was optimally active at pH 11.0 and 47°C. It had high degrading activity for the Aα-chain
and B？-chain of human fibrinogen, but did not affect the ？-chain, indicating that it is an ？-fibrinogenase.
FIN-WRL101 was completely inhibited by phenylmethylsulfonyl fluoride, indicating that it belongs to the
serine protease. FIN-WRL101 exhibited high specificity for Meo-Suc-Arg-Pro-Tyr-pNA (S-2586), a
synthetic chromogenic substrate for chymotrypsin. Its nucleotide and amino acid sequences were
- Bacillus subtilis; Doenjang; fibrinolytic enzyme; nattokinase.
