1994). Biochemical analysis revealed that no polypeptide of the size coded for by the acsAB gene could be visualized in extracts of G. xylinusATCC 53582; instead, two polypeptides of 83 kD and 93 kD were present in the purified cellulose synthase, suggesting that posttranslational processing of a large polypeptide results in these two polypeptides. Additionally these two polypeptides were present in a 1:1 ratio in the purified cellulose synthase (Chen and Brown 1996). Interestingly, a second fused cellulose synthase gene (acsAII) was identified in G.
Although the organization of genes for cellulose synthesis in G. xylinus strains ATCC 53582 and ATCC 23769 was similar to what was identified in the bcs operon in strain 1306-3, the bcsA and bcsB genes in these strains were found to be fused as a single gene (acsAB). Since this organization of genes for cellulose synthesis was first identified in G. xylinus (Acetobacter xylinum at that time), we named the operon the acetobacter cellulose-synthesizing operon (the acs operon) in which the genes were shown to be organized as acsAB, acsC, and acsD (Saxena et al.
