A salt-sensitive mutant of Synechocystis sp. strain PCC 6803 defective in the synthesis of the compatible solute glucosylglycerol (GG) was used to search for the gene encoding GG-phosphate synthase (GGPS), the key enzyme in GG synthesis. Cloning and sequencing of the mutated region and the corresponding wild-type region revealed that a deletion of about 13(More)
Glucosylglycerol-phosphate synthase (GGPS), the key enzyme of the glucosylglycerol biosynthesis in salt-stressed cells of Synechocystis, was biochemically analyzed in crude extracts, after partial purification by FPLC and after overexpression of the gene ggpS in Escherichia coli and purification to homogenity of the recombinant protein, respectively.
