Abstract
The 181 251 bp accessory plasmid pSmeSM11b of Sinorhizobium meliloti strain SM11, belonging to a dominant indigenous S. meliloti subpopulation identified during a long-term field release experiment, was sequenced. This plasmid has 166 coding sequences (CDSs), 42% of which encode proteins with homology to proteins of known function. Plasmid pSmeSM11b is a member of the repABC replicon family and contains a large gene region coding for a conjugation system similar to that of other self-transmissible plasmids in Rhizobium and Agrobacterium. Another pSmeSM11b gene region, possibly involved in sugar metabolism and polysaccharide catabolism, resembled a region of S. meliloti 1021 megaplasmid pSymB and in the genome of Sinorhizobium medicae WSM419. Another module of plasmid pSmeSM11b encodes proteins similar to those of the nitrogen-fixing actinomycete Frankia CcI3, and which are likely to be involved in the synthesis of a secondary metabolite. Several ORFs of pSmeSM11b were predicted to play a role in nonribosomal peptide synthesis. Plasmid pSmeSM11b has many mobile genetic elements, which contribute to the mosaic composition of the plasmid.
