A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

The protomer forming the S-layer of Clostridium thermocellum was identified as a 140 kDa protein which was non-covalently bound to the cell wall. Cloning and sequencing of the corresponding gene revealed an open reading frame of 3108 nucleotides encoding a polypeptide of 1036 amino acids, termed SlpA. The amino acid composition of SlpA matches the composition of a previously described exocellular glycoprotein. SlpA shared extensive similarity with the S-layer protein of Bacillus sphaericus and with the outer wall protein of Bacillus brevis. In addition, the amino-terminal region of SlpA contained a segment presenting similarities with segments termed SLH (S-layer homologous), which are found in several bacterial exoproteins. A polypeptide of 209 residues comprising this segment was shown to bind to cell walls extracted from C. thermocellum cells.
