Physical genome analysis of the virulence-associated fliC locus in 20 Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains by mapping and sequencing revealed groups of heterologous a-type (1164 bp; 1185 bp) and highly conserved b-type (1467 bp) flagellin genes. Whereas only two synonymous nucleotide substitutions were detected in eight b-type fliC sequences, the 12 a-type… CONTINUE READING
