A Gram-negative bacterium, Sphingomonas sp. A1, has a macromolecule (alginate) import system consisting of a pit on the cell surface and an alginate-specific ATP-binding cassette importer in the inner membrane. Transport of alginate from the pit to the ABC importer is probably mediated by two periplasmic binding protein homologues (AlgQ1 and AlgQ2). Here we describe characteristics of binding of AlgQ1 and AlgQ2 to alginate and its oligosaccharides through surface plasmon resonance biosensor… CONTINUE READING
