Cyanobacterial alkaline/neutral invertases. Origin of sucrose hydrolysis in the plant cytosol?

  author={Walter Alberto Vargas and Andrea Cumino and Graciela L Salerno},
The aim of this work was to investigate the occurrence of invertase (Inv) in cyanobacteria. We describe the first isolation and characterization of prokaryotic alkaline/neutral Inv (A/N-Inv) genes. Two genes (invA and invB) were identified in Anabaena sp. PCC 7120, which share about 50–56% identity with plant A/N-Inv and encode proteins of about 53–55 kDa. The identification of these proteins was confirmed by biochemical and immunological studies with recombinant proteins and with the enzymes… CONTINUE READING
