|Abstract:||The secreted extracellular subtilase SR5-3 from Halobacillus sp. bacterium, isolated from the high-salt environment of Thai fish sauce. was utilized as a model halophilic serine protease. the dependence of salt activation on the size and structure of substrates was evaluated assaying the enzyme with Suc-AAPF-MCA and with the Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) peptide Abz-AAPFSSKQ-EDDnp. Solvent isotope effects (SIE) and the thermodynamic parameters for activation of the hydrolysis of Suc-AAPF-MCA and Abz-AAPFSSKQ-EDDnp by SR5-3 protease in the presence of salts were also performed. All the obtained results support the notion that the salting out effect is responsible for the halophilic character of SR5-3, and the magnitude of its hydrolytic activity is mainly derived from the improvement of catalytic and/or interaction steps depending on the nature and size of the substrates, principally if they occupy the substrate prime subsites.
