Table 1 Comparison of the catalytic properties of native and recombinant TGases.

From: The order of expression is a key factor in the production of active transglutaminase in Escherichia coli by co-expression with its pro-peptide

Resource Optimal temperature (°C) Optimal pH Specific activity (U/mg) Km (mmol/L)
Native 40 6.0 18.2 54.7
apSPTG 40 6.0 21.0 57.1
pSPRO-STG 40 6.0 22.0 56.6
  1. a Pro-TGase was transformed into active TGase through the addition of dispase.
