Identification and characterization of the carAB genes responsible for encoding carbamoylphosphate synthetase in Halomonas eurihalina

Halomonas eurihalina is a moderately halophilic bacterium which produces exopolysaccharides potentially of great use in many fields of industry and ecology. Strain F2–7 of H. eurihalina synthesizes an anionic exopolysaccharide known as polymer V2–7, which not only has emulsifying activity but also becomes viscous under acidic conditions, and therefore we… CONTINUE READING
