Mutations in a gene, stpA, had been correlated with the loss of tolerance to high NaCl concentrations in the cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. strain PCC 6803. Genetic, biochemical, and physiological evidence shows that stpA encodes glucosylglycerol-phosphate phosphatase. stpA mutants are salt sensitive and accumulate glucosylglycerol-phosphate, the precursor of the osmoprotectant glucosylglycerol necessary for salt adaptation of Synechocystis. The consensus motif present in acid phosphatases… CONTINUE READING
