Recombinant plasmids encoding 3-deoxy-d-manno-oct-2-ulosonate-8-phosphate (Kdo-8-P) synthase (KdsA; EC 4.1.2.16) were identified from a cDNA library of Pisum sativum L. (pea) by complementing a temperature-sensitive kdsA ts mutant of the Gram-negative bacterium Salmonella enterica. Sequence analysis of several inserts revealed a central open reading frame encoding a protein of 290 amino acids with a high degree of amino acid sequence similarity to bacterial KdsA. The cDNA was confirmed by… CONTINUE READING
