Type 51 R bodies are produced by all bacterial endosymbionts (Caedibacter taeniospiralis) of Paramecium tetraurelia that confer the hump-killer trait upon their hosts. Type 51 R-body synthesis by C. taeniospiralis is required for expression of the hump-killer trait. The genetic determinants for type 51 R-body synthesis by C. taeniospiralis 47 have been cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli. In this communication we describe three species of polypeptides required for R-body synthesis and the… CONTINUE READING
