BcsZ, endo-1,4-D-glucanase

BcsA, BcsB, BcsZ and BcsC are involved in biosynthesis of cellulose in Escherichia coli. The bcsZ gene encodes an endo-1,4-D-glucanase which belongs to glycosyl hydrolase family 8. First 21 amino acids are predicted to be a type I signal peptide. The activity of BcsZ is required for optimal synthesis and membrane translocation of cellulose.
