Differences in the poly saccharides produced by cam r and st r mutants of rhizobium spp

Indian Journal of Microbiology 18(1): 76-77
Differences in the poly saccharides produced by cam r and st r mutants of rhizobium spp
The mutants produces more water soluble and alkali stable polysaccharides than the wild type, indicating that the mutation for antibiotic resistance in some way enhanced polysaccharide synthesis. Monomeric sugar units of the polysaccharides produced by the wild type consisted only of hexoses while those of the mutants consisted of hexoses and pentoses. Both mutants had very low respiratory levels and there was no correlation between polysaccharide production and respiration.
