Abstract :

The "adaptor scaffoldin" strategy is employed to compensate for the low levels of protein displayed on the bacterial cell surface. Using this approach, several bacterial consortia of Lactobacillus plantarum, a potent gut microbe which provides a very robust genetic framework for lignocellulosic degradation, are produced. The results demonstrate that the enzyme stability and performance of the cellulosomal machinery.
