Abstract

A 17-kb scaffoldin gene cluster in Ruminococcus flavefaciens strain FD-1 was compared with the homologous segment published for strain 17. Although the general design of the cluster is identical in the two strains, significant differences in the modular architecture of the scaffoldin proteins were discovered, implying strain-specific divergence in cellulosome organization.
