The initial step in the uptake of iron via ferric pseudobactin by the plant-growth-promoting Pseudomonas putida strain WCS358 is binding to a specific outer-membrane protein. The nucleotide sequence of the pupA structural gene, which codes for a ferric pseudobactin receptor, was determined. It contains a single open reading frame which potentially encodes a polypeptide of 819 amino acids, including a putative N-terminal signal sequence of 47 amino acids. Significant homology, concentrated in… CONTINUE READING
