Functional conservation of the polysaccharide biosynthetic protein WbpM and its homologues in Pseudomonas aeruginosa and other medically significant bacteria.


WbpM is a highly conserved protein involved in synthesis of the O antigens of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Homologues of this protein have been identified in a large number of bacteria, and they can be divided into two subfamilies: subfamily 1, including WbpM, contains large proteins ( approximately 600 amino acids), while subfamily 2, typified by HP0840 (FlaA1… (More)
