AIMS: Identification, cloning, expression and characterization of a novel lipase -Lip I.3- from strain Pseudomonas CR-611. METHODS AND RESULTS: The corresponding gene was identified and isolated by PCR-amplification, cloned and expressed in E. coli, and purified by refolding from inclusion bodies. Analysis of the deduced amino acid sequence revealed high homology with members of bacterial lipase family I.3, showing 97% identity to a putative lipase from P. fluorescens Pf0-1, and 93% identity to a crystallized extracellular lipase from Pseudomonas sp. MIS38. A typical C-terminal type I secretion signal and several putative Ca(2+) binding sites were also identified. Experimental data confirmed that Lip I.3 requires Ca(2+) ions for correct folding and activity. The enzyme differs from previously reported family I.3 lipases in optimal pH, being the first acidophilic lipase reported in this family. Furthermore, Lip I.3 shows a strong preference for medium chain fatty acid esters and does not display interfacial activation. When tested for activity on secondary alcohol hydrolysis, LipI.3 displayed higher efficiency on aromatic alcohols rather than on alkyl alcohols. CONCLUSIONS: New family I.3 lipase with unusual properties isolated, cloned and described. This will contribute to a better knowledge of family I.3 lipases, a family that has been scarcely explored, and that might provide a novel source of biocatalysts. © 2012The Authors Journal of Applied Microbiology © 2012 The Society for Applied Microbiology.
