The maltose degradation operon containing genes encoding maltose phosphorylase mapA and phosphoglucomutase pgmA from Lactobacillus sanfranciscensis DSM20451T were cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli. These genes represent the first genetic data available for this species beyond taxonomic classification. MapA encodes a 754-amino acid polypeptide representing maltose phosphorylase, MapA, with a calculated molecular mass of 85.7 kDa. Comparative sequence analysis showed that mapA is of a new… CONTINUE READING
