Twenty-seven strains of Rhizopus oryzae accumulating predominantly lactic acid were shown to possess two ldh genes, ldhA and ldhB, encoding NAD-dependent lactate dehydrogenases. Variation in nucleotide sequence was identified for each gene from different strains, and similar phylogenetic trees were obtained based on the nucleotide sequences of both genes. The other 21 strains of R. oryzae accumulating predominantly fumaric and malic acids contained a single ORF of ldhB. Compared to the strains… CONTINUE READING
