Abstract
It is thought that in the gram-negative soil bacterium Sinorhizobium meliloti the protein ExoP is involved in biosynthesis of the acidic exopolysaccharide succinoglycan (EPS I). The amounts and compositions of EPS I produced by mutants expressing ExoP proteins characterized by specific amino acid substitutions in the C-terminal cytoplasmic domain were analyzed. The cytoplasmic domain of the ExoP protein was shown to have ATPase activity. Mutations in the highly conserved Walker A ATP-binding motif prevented ATPase activity of the ExoP protein. Phenotypically, these mutations resulted in much lower levels of succinoglycan which consisted only of monomers of the octasaccharide repeating unit. The ExoP protein has similarities to proteins with autophosphorylating protein tyrosine kinase activity. We found that ExoP was phosphorylated on tyrosine and that site-directed mutagenesis of specific tyrosine residues in the cytoplasmic domain of ExoP resulted in an altered ratio of low-molecular-weight succinoglycan to high-molecular-weight succinoglycan.
