The rfb (O antigen) gene cluster of a group C1 Salmonella enterica strain was sequenced; it comprised seven open reading frames which precisely replaced the 16 open reading frames of a group B strain. Two genes of the mannose biosynthetic pathway were present: rfbK (phosphomannomutase) had a G+C content of 0.61 and had only 40% identity to rfbK of group B but was very similar to cpsG of the capsular polysaccharide pathway with 96% identity, whereas rfbM [guanosine diphosphomannose (GDP-Man… CONTINUE READING
