The recently cloned β-galactosidase from Bacillus circulans ATCC 31382, designated BgaD, contains a multiple domain architecture including a F5/8 type C domain or a discoidin (DS) domain in the C-terminal peptide region. Here we report that the DS domain plays an essential role in repressing the production of galactooligosaccharides (GOSs). We prepared deletion mutants and point-mutated forms of rBgaD-A (deletion of the BgaD signal peptide) to compare their reaction behaviors. The yields of GOS for all of the point-mutated forms as well as the deletion mutants of rBgaD-As increased as compared to rBgaD-A. In particular, W1540A mutant BgaD-A (rBgaD-A_W1540A) produced much more GOSs than rBgaD-A. Surface plasmon resonance experiments indicated that both the wild-type and the W1540A mutant DS domain showed high affinity for galactosyllactose. rBgaD-A, which has a wild-type DS domain, showed high hydrolytic activity toward galactosyllactose, while the hydrolytic activities of rBgaD-D, without a DS domain, and rBgaD-A_W1540A, with a mutant DS domain were extremely low. The findings obtained in this study indicate that the wild-type DS domain of rBgaD-A has a function that aids galactosyllactose molecules to be properly oriented within the active site, so that they can be hydrolyzed efficiently to produce galactose/glucose by inhibiting the accumulation of GOS.
