To isolate a thermostable pyrimidine nucleoside phosphorylase (PyNP) from mesophilic bacteria by gene mining.
BbPyNP from Brevibacillus borstelensis LK01 was isolated by gene mining. BbPyNP had a highest 60% identity with that of reported PyNPs. BbPyNP could catalyze the phosphorolysis of thymidine, 2′-deoxyuridine, uridine and 5-methyuridine. BbPyNP had good thermostability and retained 73% of its original activity after 2 h incubation at 50 °C. BbPyNP had the highest activity at an optimum alkaline pH of 8.5. BbPyNP was stable from pH 7 to 9.8. Under preliminary optimized conditions, the biosynthesis of various 5-halogenated pyrimidine nucleosides by BbPyNP reached the yield of 61–84%.
An efficient approach was estimated in isolating thermostable PyNP from mesophilic bacteria.
