  • Expression of the genes for trehalose synthesis (mts and mth, encoding maltooligosyl trehalose synthase and hydrolase) and trehalose hydrolysis (treH) in Anabaena sp. PCC 7120 was up-regulated markedly upon dehydration. However, the amount of trehalose accumulated during dehydration was small, whereas a large amount of sucrose was accumulated. Northern blotting analysis revealed that these genes were transcribed as an operon. Gene disruption of mth resulted in a decrease in the trehalose level… CONTINUE READING
