Postdoctoral Research on Signal Transduction in Plant Pathogenic  
Bacteria 

Two NSF funded postdoctoral positions are available to study the  
genetics and biochemistry of signal transduction in Pseudomonas.   
We have recently isolated and characterized a genetic regulator  
that is ubiquitous within Pseudomonas syringae (see Hrabak &  
Willis (1992) J. Bacteriol. 174, 3011-3020; Barta et al. (1992)  
J. Bacteriol. 174, 3021-3029; and Rich et al. (1992) Appl. Env.  
Microbiol. 58, 1440-1446).  This gene, lemA, has been sequenced  
and the putative LemA protein belongs to a family of  
transmembrane sensor proteins.  The first of the positions  
(available immediately) will be focused on the isolation of the  
LemA protein and biochemical/genetic dissection of protein  
function.  The second position (beginning 1 May 1993) will entail  
the characterization of additional mutations in P. syringae that  
block lesion formation and/or production of toxins.  We are  
seeking individuals who have interests in prokaryotic molecular  
biology or biochemistry with an emphasis on DNA sequencing,  
protein isolation using glutathione-S-transferase fusions, and  
transposon and primer-directed mutagenesis.  Send curriculum
