We have investigated the function of the Isi-1 gene of Neisseria gonorrhoeae previously implicated in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-inner-core biosynthesis (Petricoin et al., 1991). Disruption of the gene in gonococcal strain MS11 resulted in the production of LPS that migrated faster than that from an isogenic galE mutant, typical for a mutation that influences(More)
The variable incorporation of sialic acid into the LPS of Neisseria gonorrhoeae modulates the invasive behavior of this bacterium towards cultured human epithelial cells. Here we report that the inhibitory effect of LPS sialylation on the gonococcal entry into Chang epithelial cells and ME-180 endocervical cells (van Putten, EMBO J 12:4043-4051, 1993) is(More)
