A gene, mgt, encoding a protein homologous to the N-terminal module of class A high-molecular-mass penicillin-binding proteins was identified in Ralstonia eutropha. By using specific antibodies, the corresponding Mgt protein was detected in association with the membrane, confirming that the N-terminal hydrophobic segment functioned as a membrane anchor. A derivative in which the hydrophobic sequence was deleted was overexpressed as a maltose-binding fusion protein in Escherichia coli. Cleavage… CONTINUE READING
