Two SusD-like proteins encoded within a polysaccharide utilisation locus of an uncultured ruminant bacteroidetes bind strongly to cellulose
Mackenzie, A.K., Pope, P.B., Pedersen, H.L., Gupta, R., Morrison, M., Willats, W.G.T., & Eijsink, V.G.H. (2012) Two SusD-like proteins encoded within a polysaccharide utilisation locus of an uncultured ruminant bacteroidetes bind strongly to cellulose. Applied and Environmental Microbiology.
We demonstrate that two characteristic Sus-like proteins encoded within a Polysaccharide Utilisation Locus (PUL) bind strongly to cellulosic substrates and interact with plant primary cell walls. This shows associations between uncultured Bacteroidetes-affiliated lineages and cellulose in the rumen, and thus presents new PUL-derived targets to pursue regarding plant biomass degradation.
