Methanococcus maripaludis is a stringently anaerobic archaeon with two studied surface structures, archaella and type IV pili. Previously, it was shown that three pilin genes (mmp0233 [epdA], mmp0236 [epdB] and mmp0237 [epdC]) located within an 11 gene cluster in the genome were necessary for normal piliation. This study focused on analysis of the remaining genes to determine their potential involvement in piliation. Reverse transcriptase PCR experiments demonstrated the 11 genes formed a… CONTINUE READING
