can you explain to me about the bacterial cellulose production of Acetobacter xylinum in nata?
- 1 decade agoFavorite Answer
The aceA gene from Acetobacter xylinum was identified and cloned from a genomic DNA library. The complete DNA sequence was determined and computer analysis of the translated gene sequence revealed homology with the deduced amino acid sequence of gumD from Xanthomonas campestris. Therefore aceA is likely to encode the phosphate-prenyl glucose I -phosphate transferase catalyzing the first step in acetan biosynthesis in A. xylinum.
