Resumen

The T6SS is a nanosyringe that injects proteins into prokaryotic or eukaryotic cells, and it is encoded in the genomes of more than 25% of Gram-negative bacteria (1). We are studying the T6SS of Rhizobium etli Mim1 and Bradyrhizobium sp. LmicA16, symbionts of Phaseolus vulgaris/Leucaena leucocephala and Lupinus micranthus/Lupinus angustifolius/Spartium junceum, respectively. R. etli Mim1 contains a T6SS gene cluster organized in two divergent operons. When the T6SS is active, Hcp, a constituent of the secretory apparatus, can be detected in the extracellular medium (2). Hcp has been immunologically detected in the supernatant of Mim1 cultures. This protein was also detected in bean nodule extracts and in cultures grown in the presence of different legumes exudates. The putative divergent promoters located between the two T6SS gene clusters were analysed by ?- gal fusions. The results showed high levels of expression of the two promoters at high OD and low values at lower ODs. Mutants affected in structural genes induced white nodules with P. vulgaris and L. leucocephala. On the other hand, mutagenesis of T6SS structural genes from LmicA16 strain produced different symbiotic phenotypes. An LmicA16 tssC mutant showed reduced levels of nitrogen fixation on L. micranthus, whereas the same mutant induced the formation of few white, non-fixing nodules on L. angustifolius and S. junceum.
