Sample text

At a minimum, each cellulose-synthesizing site (a TC subunit) could be comprised of a homomultimeric assembly of the cellulose synthase catalytic subunits (BcsAs). Considering the hierarchical assembly of sheets to minicrystals to microfibrils to a ribbon in G. xylinus (Brown 1996), each TC subunit could be an assembly of up to 16 closely packed BcsAs in the cytoplasmic membrane. Since bcsB is present in almost all bacteria next to the bcsA coding region or as part of the bcsAB gene, BcsB must be part of the cellulose synthase complex, most likely in equal proportions to BcsA.

2010). This protein is not required for in vitro cellulose synthase activity, but it is required for cellulose production in vivo. The gene for this protein is present in the bcs operon of almost all bacteria that have this operon. BcsD is a soluble protein coded by bcsD in the bcs operon. The structure of BcsD has been determined (Hu et al. 2010). The protein assembles into a ­cylinder-shaped structure with eight subunits and four inner passageways for glucan chains. The cellular localization of this protein is not confirmed, although it has been suggested to be present in the periplasmic space (Iyer et al.
