Identification of Sinorhizobium meliloti Genes Influencing Synthesis of Surface Polysaccharides and Competitiveness


A new approach to isolating mutants with altered composition of capsular polysaccharides (CPS) and lipopolysaccharides (LPS) in nodule bacteria of alfalfa Sinorhizobium meliloti based on analysis of their respiratory activity was proposed. Random Tn5-mob mutants of symbiotically effective strain SXM1-105 were tested for slime-production ability and… (More)
