Disease relevance of chbA

  • Furthermore, the celC encoded PEP-dependent phosphotransferase system enzyme IIIcel is strikingly homologous to an enzyme IIIlac of the Gram-positive organism Staphylococcus aureus [1].
  • The gene lies between cipC (the gene encoding the cellulosome scaffolding protein) and celC (coding for the endoglucanase C) in the large cel cluster of this mesophilic cellulolytic Clostridium species [2].
