Cloning, Sequencing, and Chromosomal Location of a Putative Class-II Aldolase Gene from Streptococcus pneumoniae

The nucleotide sequence of a 1620-bp chromosomal fragment from Streptococcus pneumoniae, containing a putative class-II aldolase gene, has been determined. The N-terminal amino acid (aa) sequence of S. pneumoniae class-II aldolase protein allowed us to determine the initiation site for the putative aldolase gene, and a molecular weight of 31,274 Da was… (More)
