Phenotypic changes in spores and vegetative cells of Bacillus anthracis associated with BenK.

Abstract

A transposon insertional mutagenesis spore library of the pathogen Bacillus anthracis was screened to identify mutants altered in germination kinetics. One mutant exhibited an accelerated rate of germination in association with disruption of benK. This gene encodes a putative protein with high homology to membrane transporters that facilitate benzoate… (More)
