Replacement of isoleucine-47 by threonine in the HPr protein of Streptococcus salivarius abrogates the preferential metabolism of glucose and fructose over lactose and melibiose but does not prevent the phosphorylation of HPr on serine-46.

Phosphorylation of HPr on a serine residue at position 46 (Ser-46) by an ATP-dependent protein kinase has been reported in several Gram-positive bacteria, and the resulting intermediate, HPr(Ser-P), has been shown to mediate inducer exclusion in lactococci and lactobacilli and catabolite repression in Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus megaterium. We report here the phenotypic properties of an isogenic spontaneous mutant (G22.4) of Streptococcus salivarius ATCC 25975, in which a missense mutation… CONTINUE READING
