ASR1 Received: 11 September 2003 / Revised: 10 November 2003 / Accepted: 21 November 2003 / Published online: 16 January 2004 Abstract Klebsiella sp. strain ASR1 isolated from an Indonesian rice field is able to hydrolyse myo-inositolhexakis phosphate (phytate). The phytase protein was Phytate (myo-inositol 1,2,3,4,5,6-hexakisphosphate) is the purified and characterised as a 42 kDa protein accepting main storage form of phosphorous in plants and accounts phytate, NADP and sugar phosphates as substrates. The for 20–50% of total soil organic phosphorous (Selle et al.
corresponding gene (phyK) was cloned from chromosomal ). Due to limitation of digestible phosphorous in plant DNA using a combined approach of protein and genome and in animal nutrition, it is still common practice to add analysis, and expressed in Escherichia coli. The recom- inorganic phosphorous as plant fertiliser and as an animal binant enzyme was identified as a 3-phytase yielding myo- feed supplement. Especially in areas of intensive crop and inositol monophosphate, Ins(2)P, as the final product of livestock production, this can lead to environmental enzymatic phytate hydrolysis. Based on its amino acid pollution when phytase-producing soil microorganisms sequence, PhyK appears to be a member of a hitherto hydrolyse phytate to release inorganic orthophosphate into unknown subfamily of histidine acid phytate-degrading enzymes with the active site RHGXRXP and HD sequence Improved phosphorous nutrition is achievable by motifs, and is different from other general phosphatases mobilisation of phytate phosphorous by phytate-degrading and phytases. Due to its ability to degrade sodium phytate enzymes (phytases). Aspergillus niger phytase is currently to the mono phosphate ester, the phyK gene product is an in use as a supplement of animal diet in order to improve interesting candidate for industrial and agricultural phosphorus utilisation. Based on sequence homology, applications to make phytate phosphorous available for phytases (EC for 3-phytase and EC for 6- phytase) can be divided into histidine acid phosphatases,plant purple acid phosphatases and Bacillus beta-propellerphytases. Besides their ability to make phytate phospho-rous available, elimination of chelate-forming phytate,which is known to bind nutritionally important minerals is Electronic Supplementary Material Supplementary material is another beneficial effect of phytase activity (Reddy et al.

Max Delbrück Centre for Molecular Medicine,13125 Berlin, Germany To extend our present knowledge about bacterial Isolation, PCR amplification, sequencing and cloning of DNA phytases we performed a survey of phytase-producing bacteria sampled from soil of an Indonesian rice field.

The initial denaturation step was performed for 4 min at 94°C, andwas followed by 30 cycles as follows: denaturation at 94°C for1 min, annealing at 54°C for 1 min, and extension at 72°C for 2 min.
A final extension step at 72°C for 8 min was carried out.
For expression cloning of phosphatase genes, genomic DNA was partially degraded by digestion with Sau3AI. Following electropho-resis, fragments of 3–15 kb were eluted from agarose gels using a Qiaex system (Qiagen, Hilden, Germany). Fragments were ligated Most of the enzyme substrates were purchased from Merck into dephosphorylated BamHI-linearised pUC18 vector. After (Darmstadt, Germany).

In brief, the excised 42 kDa The Klebsiella sp. ASR1 nucleotide sequence data reported has been protein band resolved by SDS-PAGE was subjected to in-gel tryptic deposited in the GenBank nucleotide sequence database under digestion. The resulting peptide mixture was desalted using ZipTips accession numbers AF453251 (16S rDNA), AF453252 (aphA), (Millipore, Bedford, Mass.). Mass spectra were acquired using MALDI-MS (Voyager Elite spectrometer; Perseptive, Framingham,Miss.). The amino acid sequences of the proteolytic peptides wereused in subsequent database searches with the program MS-FIT(http://www.prospector.ucsf.edu/ucsfhtml/msfit.hm) in the NCBIdatabase MGH78578).

His-tagged recombinant phytase was determined from 4°C to 70°C using thestandard phytase assay at the given temperature. Enzymeactivity increased with increasing temperature up to 45°Cand declined above 50°C. Thermal stability was testedfrom 0°C to 95°C. The phytase was fairly stable for15 min when incubated in temperatures from 0°C to 45°C.
However, between 55°C and 60°C, enzyme activitydropped significantly. If incubated at 65°C, no phytaseactivity was detectable.

although containing the functional residues of histidine The specific activity of the native Klebsiella sp. ASR1 acid phosphatases, displayed only 25% overall homology phytase (224 U mg−1) exceeds the activity of phosphatase to AppA and 15–17% to fungal histidine acid phytases, measured against p-nitrophenyl phosphate (49 U mg−1) suggesting that PhyK represents a novel subfamily of 4.56 times. In general, the presence of substantial amounts histidine acid phytate-degrading enzymes that is clearly of unspecific phosphatase activity is typical of phytases distinct from the other previously characterised members belonging to the histidine acid phosphatase family (Wyss of this family. Other bacterial and plant phytases not et al. but the ratio, together with a significant lower containing the signature sequences of histidine acid Km, characterises PhyK as a true phytase. With the D/L-Ins(1,2,6)P3 and D/L-Ins(1,2)P2 or D/L-Ins(2,4)P2 D/L-Ins(1,2,5)P3 and D/L-Ins(1,2)P2 or Ins(2,5)P2 D/L-Ins(2,5,6)P3 and Ins(2,5)P2 or D/L-Ins(2,4)P2 Ins(2,4,5,6)P4 can only be degraded via Ins(2,4,6)P3 and D/L-Ins(2,4)P2 to, finally, Ins(2)P. Since pure Ins(2,4,6)P3 is not available, it was impossible to prove, or toexclude, the generation of Ins(2,4,6)P3. If in factgenerated, it possibly eluted together with Ins(1,4,5)P3.
The experimentally supported pathway of phytate degra-dation is clearly different from that reported for otherbacterial phytate-degrading enzymes, but is similar to thatof the phytase of K. terrigena (R. Greiner, unpublishedobservation). The E. coli phytate degrading enzyme P2,which is identical to the appA gene product (Golovan etal. ), initially dephosphorylates myo-inositol hexaki-sphosphate at the 6-position followed by sequentialremoval of phosphate groups at the 1- and 3-position.
The resulting myo-inositol trisphosphate is degradedfurther to Ins(2,5)P2 and Ins(2)P as final product ofhydrolysis following the notation 6/1/3/4/5 (Greiner et al.
). Recently, the 3-phytase from Bacillus was charac-terised as using two independent routes of degradation ofD-Ins(1,2,3,4,5,6)P6 via Ins(2,4,5,6)P4 and D-Ins(1,2,5,6) Suggested degradation pathways of phytate by phytase P4. However, in Bacillus the main end products of PhyK from Klebsiella sp. ASR1. Ins(2,4,6)P3 is unavailable as a enzymatic phytate hydrolysis are myo-inositol trispho- reference compound in HPIC experiments (see Discussion), there- sphates. The final monophosphate Ins(2)P, which is fore it could not be excluded as a degradation intermediate generated via D-Ins(2,6)P2, is detectable only afterprolonged incubation of Ins(1,2,6)P exception of E. coli AppA, specific activities reported for enzyme concentrations (Greiner et al. Therefore, other bacterial and fungal phytases are in the same range different phytases generate different products of enzymatic (Greiner et al. ; Lassen et al. as found for hydrolysis, which might be desirable in specific applica- PhyK.

A clear identifica- tion of the formed myo-inositol tris-, bis- and monophos-phate isomers by HPIC cannot be achieved since not all theoretically possible isomers are available.
