It also synthesizes a natural antibiotic protein barnase, a widely studied ribonuclease that forms a famously tight complex with its intracellular inhibitor barstar, and plantazolicin, an antibiotic with selective activity against Bacillus anthracis
- It is used in agriculture, aquaculture and hydroponics to fight root pathogens.
- Often used in starch hydrolysis. It is also a source of subtilisin, which catalyzes the breakdown of proteins in a similar way to trypsin.
- To improve root tolerance to salt stress. It is considered a growth-promoting rhizobacteria and has the ability to quickly colonize roots.
