Exopolysaccharide-Deficient Mutants of Rhizobium fredii HH303 Which Are Symbiotically Effective

Exopolysaccharide-Deficient Mutants of Rhizobium fredii HH303 Which Are Symbiotically Effective

Applied and Environmental Microbiology 55(7): 1852-1854

Nineteen Tn5-induced mutants of Rhizobium fredii HH303 defective in acidic exopolysaccharide synthesis were isolated by screening for lack of Calcofluor fluorescence. They were grouped by complementation analysis by using Rhizobium meliloti cosmids carrying exo genes. All of the 19 mutants were symbiotically effective or partially effective, indicating that the major bacterial acidic exopolysaccharide of this strain of R. fredii may not be required for symbiotic development in the soybean.
