Cloning and Characterization of a Gene Responsible for the Lathyrus sativus Neurotoxin Degradation

Abstract

A plasmid pBYA1, capable of degrading the Lathyrus sativus neurotoxin β-N-oxalyl amino alanine (BOAA), was isolated from a soli microbe and a physical map of the plasmid constructed. A partial Sau3A library of the plasmid was then prepared in pUC18 and a recombinant clone with a 1.8 kb insert capable of growing in M9 medium, with BOAA as sole source of… (More)
