We examined the gene expression of the marine anaerobe Pontiella desulfatans F1(T) during growth on fucoidan from Fucus vesiculosus and on its monomer L-fucose with transcriptomics to obtain insight into the pathways involved. We observed upregulation of fucoidan-specific polysaccharide utilization loci (PULs), and found evidence for a novel L-fucose degradation pathway.
