Extracellular Protease Production by B. Amyloliquefaciens
B. amyloliquefaciens produces large amounts of two major secretory proteases: alkaline protease and neutral protease. Protease production by this organism is very unusual in its response to inhibitors of transcription. Using the antibiotics rifampicin and actinomycin D, which block transcription, we have demonstrated the presence of an apparent mRNA pool, capable of supporting protease production for about sixty minutes after addition of the antibiotics .
