Analysis and application of Bacillus subtilis sortases to anchor recombinant proteins on the cell wall
Hoang Duc Nguyen1,2,3*, Trang Thi Phuong Phan1,2,3 and Wolfgang Schumann1
Abstract Bacillus subtilis codes for two putative sortases, YhcS and YwpE, and two surface proteins, YhcR and YfkN, harboring sorting motifs supposed to be recognized by the putative sortase(s). However, there is no experimental evidence to show a direct link between these sortases and sorting sequences.
