Nucleotide sequence of the Erwinia chrysanthemi gene encoding 2-keto-3-deoxygluconate permease.


The phytopathogenic bacterium Erwinia chrysanthemi produces a group of pectolytic enzymes able to depolymerise the pectic compounds in plant cell walls. The resulting tissue maceration is known as soft rot disease. The degraded pectin products are transported by 2-keto-3-deoxygluconate permease into the bacterial cell, where they serve as carbon and energy… (More)
