CBDcipA with N and C-terminal linker in RFC25
Cellulose binding domains (CBDs) mediate the binding of enzymes to cellulose1. CBDs are divided into over a dozen families based on their sequence homology 2. Family III of CBDs is divided into a, b and c with CBDCipA belonging to family III a; the clostridial scaffoldin CBDs3. CBDCipA was identified in Clostridium thermocellum and is capable of binding to crystalline cellulose in a reversible manner4. CBDCipA includes endogenous linker sequences at both the N and C-terminals which help to prevent the CBD from interfering with the folding of any other protein it may be fused to.
To characterise the binding of CBDCipA to Whatman 54 we fused it to RFP (BBa_K1615089) at both the N and C terminals and looked at dissociation of the CBD over time.
