Degenerate upstream and downstream primers were used specifically designed to pick up the inulinase gene.
An A5 yielding inulinase was originally isolated from Black Solenostemon scutellarioides.
PCR Amplification and Dna Sequencing of Inulinase Gene":
Genomic DNA was amplified by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using the degenerate upstream primers InuF2 : 5' TGGATGAAYGAYCCIAAYGGICTIG-3' and the downstream primers InuR2 : 5' RAAIACYTTIGGRTCYCTRAARTC-3' specifically designed to pick up the inulinase gene.
The isolated plasmid DNA of the inulinase gene was then submitted for sequencing (First BASE Laboratories Sdn.
The inulinase activity of A5 bacteria isolate was assayed using dye-coupled techniques [2].
The results showed that the partial sequence of inulinase gene consisted of 449 bp (Figure 3).
