A branching enzyme (EC 2.4.1.18) gene was isolated from an extremely thermophilic bacterium, Rhodothermus obamensis. The predicted protein encodes a polypeptide of 621 amino acids with a predicted molecular mass of 72 kDa. The deduced amino acid sequence shares 42–50% similarity to known bacterial branching enzyme sequences. Similar to the Bacillus branching enzymes, the predicted protein has a shorter N-terminal amino acid extension than that of the Escherichia coli branching enzyme. The… CONTINUE READING
