lpt6, a gene required for addition of phosphoethanolamine to inner-core lipopolysaccharide of Neisseria meningitidis and Haemophilus influenzae.

Abstract:

We previously described a gene, lpt3, required for the addition of phosphoethanolamine (PEtn) at the 3 position on the beta-chain heptose (HepII) of the inner-core Neisseria meningitidis lipopolysaccharide (LPS), but it has long been recognized that the inner-core LPS of some strains possesses PEtn at the 6 position (PEtn-6) on HepII. We have now identified a gene, lpt6 (NMA0408), that is required for the addition of PEtn-6 on HepII. The lpt6 gene is located in a region previously identified ...
