abstract An alanine racemase gene from Lb. reuteri was cloned by using degenerate oligonucleotides corresponding to conserved regions derived from several bacterial alanine racemases. The protein is 375alphaalpha in length and shows 63.6% homology to the Lb. plantarum alanine racemase. Unlike the single alanine racemase activity found in Lb. plantarum, deletion of the Lb. reuteri alanine racemase reveals a second activity, which is inhibited by beta-chloro- D-alanine.
