In Staphylococcus xylosus, scrB is one of two genes necessary for sucrose utilization. It encodes a sucrase that hydrolyzes intracellular sucrose-6-phosphate generated by the uptake of sucrose via the sucrose-specific enzyme II of the phosphotransferase system, the gene product of scrA. ScrB sucrase activity is inducible by the presence of sucrose in the culture medium. Primer extension experiments demonstrated that the observed regulation is achieved at the level of scrB transcription… CONTINUE READING
