Linker insertion mutagenesis was used to modify the paracrystalline surface layer (S-layer) protein (RsaA) of the gram-negative bacterium Caulobacter crescentus. Eleven unique BamHI linker insertions in the cloned rsaA gene were identified; at the protein level, these linker insertions introduced 4 to 6 amino acids at positions ranging from the extreme N terminus to the extreme C terminus of the 1,026-amino-acid RsaA protein. All linker-peptide insertions in the RsaA N terminus caused the… CONTINUE READING
