Cloning and expression of a prokaryotic sucrose-phosphate synthase gene from the cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp PCC 6803
Sucrose is one of several low-molecular-weight compounds that cyanobacteria accumulate in response to osmotic stress and which are believed to act as osmoprotectants. The genome of the cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 contains a 2163 bp open reading frame (ORF) that shows similarity to genes from higher plants encoding sucrose-phosphate synthase (SPS), the enzyme responsible for sucrose synthesis. The deduced amino acid sequence shows 35-39% identity with known higher-plant SPS...[Show more]
