Translation and processing of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens extracellular RNase

J Bacteriol. 1989 Feb;171(2):1185-7. doi: 10.1128/jb.171.2.1185-1187.1989.


Bacillus amyloliquefaciens extracellular RNase has been previously cloned and expressed in Bacillus subtilis. Site-specific mutagenesis experiments have identified codon -39 as the start site of translation. We have determined the primary signal peptide cleavage site of preprobarnase and propose a pathway for the conversion of probarnase to mature barnase.
