Yersinia pseudotuberculosis inv mutant strains cured of the virulence plasmid exhibit thermoinducible adhesion to cultured mammalian cells. To identify the genes responsible for this phenotype, Y. pseudotuberculosis homologs of the Y. enterocolitica ail and the Y. pestis psa loci were identified. Mutations in the Y. pseudotuberculosis ail and psa loci were constructed and tested for thermoinducible binding. Results of cellular binding assays indicated that only mutations in psa, not in ail… CONTINUE READING
