Insertion mutagenesis of XpsD, an outer-membrane protein involved in extracellular protein secretion in Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris.

XpsD is an outer-membrane protein required for extracellular protein secretion in Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris. Cross-linking and gelfiltration chromatography analyses have suggested that it forms a multimer. To determine its structure-function relationship, linker-insertion mutants were constructed in an xpsD gene carried on a plasmid. To assay… CONTINUE READING
