Subsystem: Maltose and Maltodextrin Utilization
This subsystem's description is:
The maltose system is responsible for the uptake and efficient catabolism of alpha (1->4)-linked glucose polymers (maltodextrins) up to 7 to 8 glucose units.
Maltose-maltodextrin utilization has been studied mainly in gram-negative enteric bacteria (ref.1).
1.0 – full set of Maltose/Maltodextrin Utilization genes- most common gram-negative setup with genes malP and malQ encoding essential enzymes(MalE,MalF,MalG,MsmK,MalP,MalQ);
2.0 - Gram-positive set of Maltose/Maltodextrin Utilization genes(MalE,MalF,MalG,MsmK);
x - in the position after dot stands for incomplete pathway (some genes missed).
