Generally, RecD associates with two other proteins (RecB and RecC) to produce RecBCD enzyme, which is involved in homologous recombination and DNA repair in many bacteria, including Escherichia coli. However, RecD is(More)

In this study, we constructed a metagenomic library from isolated DNA of soil samples collected from Palamuru University campus premises, in Mahabubnagar district of Andhra Pradesh, India. We isolated a novel lipase gene(More)
