Abstract

Crude protein extracts of Novosphingobium sp. PP1Y, a microorganism isolated from polluted marinewaters in Pozzuoli (Italy), were analyzed for the presence of glycosidase activities. Particular attentionwas devoted to a -L-rhamnosidase activity able to hydrolyze several flavonoids of interest for the phar-maceutical and food industries. This activity had an alkaline pH optimum and a moderate tolerance to thepresence of organic solvents, appealing features for its possible biotechnological uses. An increase of the-L-rhamnosidase activity in PP1Y crude extracts was induced by adding naringin to the growth medium,suggesting the possibility to use material from Citrus industrial waste to induce the glycosidase activityexpressed by strain PP1Y and produce simultaneously high-added-value molecules from the hydrolysis oftheir flavonoids. In order to investigate on the enzymatic mechanism of PP1Y -L-rhamnosidase activity,hydrolysis products of PNP--L-rhamnopyranoside were analyzed by1H-NMR experiments. The kineticbehaviour clearly indicated an inverting mechanism of hydrolysis for this novel enzymatic activity.
