Abstract

B. stearothermophilus PV72 is a thermophilic gram-positive bacterium, which is surrounded by a hexagonally-arranged (p6) S-layer (Sleytr et al., 1986). As estimated by SDS-PAGE, the S-layer protein of B. stearothermophilus has a Mr = 130 kDa (Messner et al., 1984). The S-layer can be dissociated into subunits which have the ability to self-assemble into lattices identical to those observed on intact cells (Sleytr, 1976).
