A small (19.8 kDa) protein was identified in Bacillus amyloliquefaciens ALKO 2718 cultures during growth in the presence of yeast extract and chitin, but not with glucose. The protein targets beta-chitin best, then alpha-chitin, but barely any other polysaccharide. This described chitin-binding protein (ChbB) is the first of its type from a Bacillus strain and cross-reacts with antibodies raised against the Streptomyces alpha-chitin-binding protein CHB1. Using reverse genetics, the chromosomal… CONTINUE READING
