Molecular organization of exopolysaccharide (EPS) encoding genes on the lactococcal bacteriophage adsorption blocking plasmid, pCI658.


The lactococcal plasmid pCI658 (58 kb) isolated from Lactococcus lactis ssp. cremoris HO2 encodes the production of a hydrophilic exopolysaccharide (EPS) which consists primarily of galactose and glucuronic acid and which interferes with adsorption of phages ø712 and øc2 to cell surface receptors. Examination of the nucleotide sequence of a 21.8-kb region… (More)
