Resumen

We have cloned and sequenced the rfaH gene from Salmonella enterica serovar Typhi Strain Ty2. The gene shoed a high degree of similirity to the rfaH genes from Escherichia coli K-12 and S. enterica serovar Typhimurium. A rafH mutant was constructed by site-directed mutagenegis. This mutant produced a rough lipopolysaccharide LPS, with an incomplete core region. The defect in LPS expression that rsults from the rafH mutation was corrected by a plasmid carrying the intact gene. The plasmid-borne rafH gene also restored normal LPS synthesis in a rafH mutant of E. coli. Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction analyses were performed to determine the effects of various environmental conditions on the expression of rafH. The transcription of rafH showed a growth-phase-dependent regulation, with maximal expression at the late exponential phase. Other environmental conditions, such as temperature or medium osmolarity, did not affect transcription of rafH.Nota general
