Abstract

Summary: The structural gene for a glucan-binding protein (GBP) of has been inserted into a bacteriophage λ vector and expressed in K12. Lysates of . infected with the recombinant phage contain an antigenic protein of the same size as . GBP. The GBP synthesized in . can be affinity-purified on immobilized glucan and antiserum raised against it has been shown to precipitate fructosyltransferase activity from . .
