Genetic and phenotypic mapping of an approximately 145-kb DraI fragment of Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae strain B301D determined that the syringomycin (syr) and syringopeptin (syp) gene clusters are localized to this fragment. The syr and syp gene clusters encompass approximately 55 kb and approximately 80 kb, respectively. Both phytotoxins are synthesized by a thiotemplate mechanism of biosynthesis, requiring large multienzymatic proteins called peptide synthetases. Genes encoding peptide… CONTINUE READING
