Nutrient assimilation and amino acid utilisation in Pseudomonas syringae

Abstract:

The aim of this study was to increase understanding of amino acid utilisation and amino acid permease (aa_permease) genes in the plant pathogen Pseudomonas syringae, which inhabits the nutrient-limited environment of the plant surface and intracellular apoplast. aa_permease genes are significantly reduced in P. syringae genomes compared to non plant-pathogenic Pseudomonas. Accordingly, this work demonstrates that P. syringae can utilise a restricted number of amino acids for growth compared t...
