The industrial Leuconostoc strain B/110-1-2 producing dextran and dextran derivatives was taxonomically identified by 16S rRNA as L. citreum. Its dextransucrase enzymes were characterized according to their cellular location and reaction specificity. In the presence of sucrose, the strain B/110-1-2 produced two cell-associated dextransucrases (31.54% of the total glucosyltransferase activity) with molecular weights of 160 and 240 kDa and a soluble dextransucrase (68.46%) at 160–180 kDa. Two… CONTINUE READING
