Lipoprotein PssN of Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. trifolii: subcellular localization and possible involvement in exopolysaccharide export.


Surface expression of exopolysaccharides (EPS) in gram-negative bacteria depends on the activity of proteins found in the cytoplasmic membrane, the periplasmic space, and the outer membrane. pssTNOP genes identified in Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. trifolii strain TA1 encode proteins that might be components of the EPS polymerization and secretion system.
