We publish a paper "Resonance assignments of cohesin and dockerin domains from Clostridium acetobutylicum ATCC824" on Biomol. NMR Assign.

[2012.3.24] Cellulosome assembling modules, cohesin and dockerin, can be divided into three major groups according the sequence homolgy, whereas cohesins and dockerins from Clostridium acetobutylicum are beyond these groups and emanate from a branching point between the type I and type III cohesins/dockerins. To study their structures and interactions, as well as the potential application in artificial cellulosome desgin, we performed the NMR resonance assignments of cohesin and dockerin domains of C. acetobutylicum. This is the first step to the structural determination of the two domains. Further structurel and interaction studies are in progress.
