We examined eight spontaneously occurring rough mutants of Listeria monocytogenes for their ability to express two previously reported autolysins, p60 and MurA. All mutants lack MurA expression and show strongly reduced levels of extracellular p60. One rough strain harbors a variant of the p60 protein with a partially truncated catalytic domain. In seven cases there were shifts in the localization of p60 to the membrane fraction. Mutations within the secA2 gene, encoding an auxiliary protein… CONTINUE READING
