A biochemical approach to identify proteins with high affinity for choline-containing pneumococcal cell walls has allowed the localization, cloning and sequencing of a gene (lytC ) coding for a protein that degrades the cell walls of Streptococcus pneumoniae. The lytC gene is 1506 bp long and encodes a protein (LytC) of 501 amino acid residues with a predicted M r of 58 682. LytC has a cleavable signal peptide, as demonstrated when the mature protein (about 55 kDa) was purified from S… CONTINUE READING
