Multiple forms of microbial enzymes.

PMID:  12966997     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Multiple forms of one enzyme occur in a wide variety of microorganisms. Their synthesis is often dependent on culture characteristics such as medium composition, physico-chemical parameters, culture age and the presence of inducing or inhibiting agents. Multiform enzymes increase the capability of the producing organism to adapt to and cope with a wide variety of environmental changes, such that the physiological advantages outweigh the apparent wasteful hyperproduction of multiple forms of one enzyme.
