NUCLEOSIDE DEOXYRIBOSYLTRANSFERASE AND INOSINE PHOSPHORYLASE-ACTIVITY IN LACTIC-ACID BACTERIA
UNSPECIFIED (1991) NUCLEOSIDE DEOXYRIBOSYLTRANSFERASE AND INOSINE PHOSPHORYLASE-ACTIVITY IN LACTIC-ACID BACTERIA. [Journal Item]Full text not available from this repository.
Phosphate-independent nucleoside deoxyribosyltransferase activity was detected in Aerococcus viridans, Leuconostoc mesenteroides, two species of Pediococcus, eight obligately homofermentative and three obligately heterofermentative lactobacilli. In cell-free extracts of one strain of Lactococcus, one strain of Streptococcus and three strains of facultatively heterofermentative lactobacilli no phosphate-independent nucleoside deoxyribosyltransferase could be detected and inosine nucleoside phosphorylase was the only enzyme catalysing pentosyl transfer to purines. A classification based on the presence or absence of these enzymes separates Streptococcus and Lactococcus from the remaining genera which is in agreement with studies using anti-aldolase sera and 16S rRNA oligonucleotide catalogues.
