Abstract

An acid phosphatase containing a 27-kDa polypeptide component has been identified in Escherichia coli by means of a zymogram technique. The enzyme is secreted in the periplasmic space and is able to hydrolyze several organic phosphate esters, but not diesters, showing preferential activity on p-nitrophenyl phosphate and other phenolic phosphate esters. Production of the enzyme apparently occurs only in cells growing on carbon sources other than glucose.
