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.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
