Nucleotide sequencing of the celZ gene encoding the extracellular endoglucanase Z of Erwinia chrysanthemi indicated the presence of an open reading frame encoding 428 amino acids. The mature protein appeared to be extended by a signal peptide of 43 amino acids; this sequence is unusually long and positively charged (+5). It was shown to function as a signal peptide by fusing it to a truncated phoA gene encoding Escherichia coli alkaline phosphatase. Comparison of the encoded sequence with those… CONTINUE READING
