This article reports the characterization of the Clostridium thermocellum SdbA protein thought to anchor the cellulosome to the bacterial cell surface. The NH2-terminal region of SdbA consists of a cohesin domain which specifically binds the dockerin domain of the cellulosomal scaffolding protein CipA. The COOH-terminal region consists of a triplicated(More)
The cellulosome-integrating protein CipA, which serves as a scaffolding protein for the cellulolytic complex produced by Clostridium thermocellum, comprises a COOH-terminal duplicated segment termed the dockerin domain. This paper reports the cloning and sequencing of a gene, termed sdbA (for scaffoldin dockerin binding), encoding a protein which(More)
