Additional Information
Bacillus amyloliquefaciens is a Gram-positive, aerobic baterium found in soil samples in nature.

Alpha amylase from B. amyloliquefaciens is often used in starch hydrolysis. B. amyloliquefaciens is also a source of subtilisin, an enzyme that catalyzes the breakdown of proteins in a similar way to trypsin. 

It also produces Barnase, an extracellular guanine specific ribonuclease, and barstar is its intracellular inhibitor.
