Mutation of HP0256 does not affect flagellin and hook protein production. Flagellin and hook protein levels in the HP0256-KO mutant and the wild-type were analyzed by SDS-PAGE and immunoblotting. Two independent immunoblottings were performed. Panel A, Coomassie blue staining protein gel, Panel B, immunobloting, Lane 1, Protein marker; lane 2, CCUG17874 cytoplasmic fraction; lane 3, CCUG17874 cell envelope fraction; lane 4, cytoplasmic fraction of CCUG17874 derivative HP0256-KO mutant and lane 5, cell envelope fraction of CCUG17874 derivative HP0256-KO mutant.
