Several versions of broad host range (BHR), L-arabinose-inducible expression vectors were constructed. These expression vectors were based on a high copy number BHR pBBR1MCS-4 replicon that could replicate in both enteric and non-enteric Gram-negative bacteria. Two versions of expression cassettes containing multiple cloning sites either with or without a(More)
Xanthomonas campestris pv. phaseoli OhrR belongs to a major family of multiple-cysteine-containing bacterial organic hydroperoxide sensors and transcription repressors. Site-directed mutagenesis and subsequent in vivo functional analyses revealed that changing any cysteine residue to serine did not alter the ability of OhrR to bind to the P1 ohrR-ohr(More)
Xanthomonas campestris Ohr (a protein involved in organic peroxide protection) and Escherichia coli OsmC (an osmotically inducible protein of unknown function) are related proteins. Database searches and phylogenetic analyses reveal that Ohr and OsmC homologues cluster into two related subfamilies of proteins widely distributed in both Gram-negative and(More)
Cadmium is an important heavy metal pollutant. For this study, we investigated the effects of cadmium exposure on the oxidative stress responses of Xanthomonas campestris, a soil and plant pathogenic bacterium. The exposure of X. campestris to low concentrations of cadmium induces cross-protection against subsequent killing treatments with either H2O2 or(More)
Oxidant induced protection against peroxide killing was investigated in a prawn bacterial pathogen, Vibrio harveyi. Exposure to 250 microM H(2)O(2) induced adaptive protection against subsequent exposure to killing concentrations of H(2)O(2). In addition, 200 microM t-butyl hydroperoxide (tBOOH) induced cross protection to H(2)O(2) killing. On the other(More)
Catalase is an important protective enzyme against H2O2 toxicity. Here, we report the characterization of a Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae catalase gene (katX). The gene was localized and its nucleotide sequence was determined. The gene codes for a 77-kDa polypeptide. The deduced katX amino acid sequence shares regions of high identity with other(More)
Analysis of the Xanthomonas campestris pv. phaseoli (Xp) catalase profile using an activity gel revealed at least two distinct monofunctional catalase isozymes denoted Kat1 and Kat2. Kat1 was expressed throughout growth, whereas Kat2 was expressed only during the stationary phase of growth. The nucleotide sequence of a previously isolated monofunctional(More)
Burkholderia pseudomallei, an infectious Gram-negative bacterium, is the causative pathogen of melioidosis. In the present study, a B. pseudomallei strain with mutation in the bsaQ gene, encoding a structural component of the type III secretion system (T3SS), was constructed. This bsaQ mutation caused a marked decrease in secretion of BopE effector and BipD(More)
The genes involved in organic hydroperoxide protection in Agrobacterium tumefaciens were functionally evaluated. Gene inactivation studies and functional analyses have identified ohr, encoding a thiol peroxidase, as the gene primarily responsible for organic hydroperoxide protection in A. tumefaciens. An ohr mutant was sensitive to organic hydroperoxide(More)
Iron is essential in numerous cellular functions. Intracellular iron homeostasis must be maintained for cell survival and protection against iron’s toxic effects. Here, we characterize the roles of Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris (Xcc) fur, which encodes an iron sensor and a transcriptional regulator that acts in iron homeostasis, oxidative stress,(More)
