Disease relevance of bglA


High impact information on bglA

  • Restriction endonuclease analysis and sequence data revealed that the clones could be divided into two groups, bglA and bglB, which were shown to be genetically distinct by Southern hybridization analyses [3].
  • An open reading frame of 1442 bp termed bglA was identified by nucleotide sequencing and it coded for a protein of 480 amino acids (M(r) 53,896) which showed significant homology with beta-glucosidases from glycosyl hydrolase family 1 [2].
