The mechanism of GTP-specific activation of the membrane-bound cellulose synthase system of Acetobacter xylinum has been further elucidated. The supernatant fraction derived from washed membranes of this organism contains an enzyme which reacts with GTP to form a low molecular mass, heat-stable compound,tentatively characterized as a cyclic oligonuleotide… CONTINUE READING
