Role of the Solute-Binding Protein CuaD in the Signaling and Regulating Pathway of Cellobiose and Cellulose Utilization in Ruminiclostridium cellulolyticum

Abstract

In Ruminiclostridium cellulolyticum, cellobiose is imported by the CuaABC ATP-binding cassette transporter containing the solute-binding protein (SBP) CuaA and is further degraded in the cytosol by the cellobiose phosphorylase CbpA. The genes encoding these proteins have been shown to be essential for cellobiose and cellulose utilization. Here, we show that a second SBP (CuaD), whose gene is adjacent to two genes encoding a putative two-component regulation system (CuaSR), forms a three-component system with CuaS and CuaR. Studies of mutant and recombinant strains of R. cellulolyticum have indicated that cuaD is important for the growth of strains on cellobiose and cellulose. Furthermore, the results of our RT-qPCR experiments suggest that both the three (CuaDSR)- and the two (CuaSR)-component systems are able to perceive the cellobiose signal. However, the strain producing the three-component system is more efficient in its cellobiose and cellulose utilization. As CuaD binds to CuaS, we propose an in-silico model of the complex made up of two extracellular domains of CuaS and two of CuaD. CuaD allows microorganisms to detect very low concentrations of cellobiose due to its high affinity and specificity for this disaccharide, and together with CuaSR, it triggers the expression of the cuaABC-cbpA genes involved in cellodextrins uptake.
