The contents, components, and synthesis genes of cell wall teichoic acid (WTA) in 18 strains of Lactobacillus plantarum were compared. The WTA of each strain was classified by its components as being either the glycerol- or the ribitol-type. The different strains in the WTA type showed marked differences also in two gene regions, tagD1–tagF2 and lp_1816–tagB2, as for the presence or absence, nucleotide sequences, and transcriptional activities. Our results clearly showed that the tagD1–tagF2… Expand
