Two novel engineered bacteria, BL21(DE3)/pETCA1S and TG1/pSuperCA1S, were obtained which can secretory express the gene encoding glutaryl 7-amino-cephalosporanic acid acylase (GL-7ACA acylase) from Pseudomonas sp. 130 with high activity. The growth conditions of transformants for overproduction of GL-7ACA acylase were optimized: in intact cells of BL21(DE3)/pETCA1S and TG1/pSuperCA1S the activity of GL-7ACA acylase was 415 and 600 units g-1 dry cells, respectively. The highest specific activity of GL-7-ACA acylase is in the intact cell as compared with that of transformants constructed in our laboratory. In fiftieth generation of mutants transferred on agar plates the specific activity of GL-7ACA acylase remained constant.
