and [beta]-glucuronidase activity in rats," The Journal of Nutrition, vol.
Two "chitinases" (glycoside hydrolases [GHs]) present on NELoc-1 are predicted to be involved in mucin degradation, as is the large carbohydrate-binding metalloprotease, shown to be involved in mucinase
activity in other clostridia.
vulnificus produce diversity of destructive extracellular products including elastase, protease, hemolysin, collagenase, DNase, lipase, phospholipase, mucinase
, chondroitin sulfatase, hyaluronidase and fibrinolysin (Wright & Morris, 1991; Al-Assafi et al., 2014).
PSC-1 has a unique 3-gene deletion in VPI-1, which includes aldA (aldehyde dehydrogenase), tagA (a mucinase
), and a predicted coding sequence encoding a hypothetical protein.
In the 1950s the mucinase
hypothesis was in fashion.
Bacterial vaginosis is associated with prematurity and vaginal fluid mucinase
and sialidase: results of a controlled trial of topical clindamycin cream.
These factors include flagellar motility, bacterial adhesins, spiral shape, proteases, and mucinases
. In addition, a large amount of urease enzymes leads to ammonia-dependent alkalinity of the local environment (7).
