The protein expression profiles of Rhizobium leguminosarum strains in response to specific genetic perturbations in exopolysaccharide (EPS) biosynthesis genes were examined using two-dimensional gel electrophoresis. Lesions in either pssA, pssD, or pssE of R. leguminosarum bv. viciae VF39 or in pssA of R. leguminosarum bv. trifolii ANU794 not only abolished the capacity of these strains to synthesize EPS but also had a pleiotropic effect on protein synthesis levels. A minimum of 22 protein...[Show more]
