An Azospirillum brasilense Tn5 mutant with modified stress response and impaired in flocculation


The analysis of an A. brasilense Tn5 mutant shows significant phenotypic differences compared to the wild type isogenic strain. The transposon was located disrupting an open reading frame of 840 bp (ORF280) which exhibits similarity to the universal stress protein (USP) family. The USP family encompasses proteins that are expressed as a response to cell… (More)
