Abstract: The alyA gene, which encodes a guluronate-specific alginate lyase from Klebsiella pneumoniae, was cloned into the plasmid pCT54 to facilitate heterologous expression of the enzyme in Escherichia coli. The greatest enzyme specific activity was observed when the complete gene and flanking regions of DNA (contained within a 1.95 kb HindIII fragment) were cloned in the correct orientation relative to the vector-encoded trp promoter. Heterologous expression of the intact gene complete with flanking regions resulted…
