5'-Nucleotides including 5'-inosinic acid have characteristic taste and important application in various foods as flavour potentiators. The selective nucleoside acid phosphatase/phosphotransferase (AP/PTase) can catalyse the synthesis of 5'-nucleotides by transfer of phosphate groups. In this study, a 747-bp gene encoding AP/PTase from Escherichia blattae was synthesised. After expression, the recombinant AP/PTase was purified using nickel-NTA. The optimal temperature and pH of this enzyme were 30°C and 5.0, respectively. The activity was partially inhibited by metal ions such as Hg(2+), Ag(+) and Cu(2+), but not by chelating reagents such as EDTA. The values of K(m) and V(max) for inosine were 40mM and 3.5U/mg, respectively. Using this purified enzyme, 16.83mM of 5'-IMP was synthesised from 37mM of inosine and the molar yield reached 45.5%. Homology modelling and docking simulation were discussed.
