General information
Name of the gene or DNA sequence
Acyl-homoserine lactonase CHB37
Alternate Genetic Element Name (synonyms)
Category of DNA sequence
  • Protein coding sequence
Is the gene / DNA sequence is a synthetic molecule?
Donor organism
Donor organism
Bacillus cereus CHB37
Donor organism point of collection
AHL-lactonase CHB37 isolated from Bacillus cereus obtained from tomato rhizosphere soil in Malaysia.
Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
Name of the protein expressed by the coding sequence
Acyl-homoserine lactonase
Biological function
The enzyme hydrolyzes N-acyl-homoserine lactones (AHLs) molecules secreted by Gram-negative bacteria, such as Erwinia mallotivora. AHLs have been determined to be the principle signalling molecule involved in quorum sensing (cell-to-cell communication) in Gram-negative bacteria and are essential for survival and regulation of virulence genes. Bacteria lacking AHLs are non-pathogenic.
Related trait(s) or use(s) in biotechnology
  • Resistance to Gram-negative bacteria
