The product of the Klebsiella pneumoniae gene pulS, which is located downstream from the pullulanase structural gene (pulA), is essential for the cell surface localization and extracellular release of pullulanase in Escherichia coli K-12. pulS is transcribed in the opposite direction to pulA, from which it is separated by a region of 624 nucleotides. Although this latter region contains a new component of the maltose regulon, pulB, which is transcribed from the pulA promoter, it is not required… CONTINUE READING
