Bacillus anthracis, a gram-positive, spore-forming bacterium, is the etiological agent of anthrax. The gene coding for the S-layer protein (sap) was cloned on two contiguous fragments in Escherichia coli, and the complete sequence of the structural gene was determined. The protein, Sap, is composed of 814 residues, including a classical prokaryotic 29-amino-acid signal peptide. The mature form has a calculated molecular mass of 83.7 kDa and a molecular mass of 94 kDa on a sodium dodecyl sulfate… CONTINUE READING
