The chvB gene of Agrobacterium tumefaciens encodes a 235 kDa proteinaceous intermediate involved in the synthesis of β-1,2-glucan. chvB mutants show a pleiotropic phenotype. Besides not to produce cyclic β-1,2-glucan, chvB mutants have been reported to be avirulent, attachment-deficient, and nonmotile. In this study we report additional differences from the… CONTINUE READING
