Abstract

The gene encoding trehalose synthase (catalyzing the conversion of maltose into alpha, alpha-trehalose by transglucosylation) was cloned from Thermus aquaticus ATCC33923. Sequence analysis revealed a 2892 bp synthase gene and a 963 residue amino-acid sequence. The 547 N-terminal residues were homologous to the full-length synthase from Pimelobacter sp. R48 (53.8% identity).
