A genomic region containing the fatty acid biosynthetic (fab) genes was isolated from the sugarcane leaf-scald pathogen Xanthomonas albilineans. The order and predicted products of fabG (beta-ketoacyl reductase), acpP (acyl carrier protein), fabF (ketoacyl synthase II) and downstream genes in X. albilineans are very similar to those in Escherichia coli, with one exception. Sequence analysis, confirmed by insertional knockout and specific substrate feeding experiments, shows that the position… CONTINUE READING
