1. Mutant strains of Clostridium pasteurianum were obtained, which are unable to synthesize granulose (an intracellularly accumulated amylopectin-like alpha-polyglucan). 2. These mutants lacked either (a) ADP-glucose pyrophosphorylase (EC, or (b) granulose synthase (i.e. ADP-glucose-alpha-1,4-glucan glucosyltransferase, EC 3. Although both of these enzymes were constitutively synthesized by the wild-type organism, massive deposition of granulose in a sporulating culture… CONTINUE READING
