Plasmids from Food Lactic Acid Bacteria: Diversity, Similarity, and New Developments.

Cui Y, Hu T, Qu X, Zhang L, Ding Z, Dong A - Int J Mol Sci (2015)

Bottom Line: Plasmids are widely distributed in different sources of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) as self-replicating extrachromosomal genetic materials, and have received considerable attention due to their close relationship with many important functions as well as some industrially relevant characteristics of the LAB species.They are interesting with regard to the development of food-grade cloning vectors.This review summarizes new developments in the area of lactic acid bacteria plasmids and aims to provide up to date information that can be used in related future research.

ABSTRACT
Plasmids are widely distributed in different sources of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) as self-replicating extrachromosomal genetic materials, and have received considerable attention due to their close relationship with many important functions as well as some industrially relevant characteristics of the LAB species. They are interesting with regard to the development of food-grade cloning vectors. This review summarizes new developments in the area of lactic acid bacteria plasmids and aims to provide up to date information that can be used in related future research.

A Neighbor-joining tree was constructed with the ClustalW using Rep proteins from Lactococcus lactis plasmids. Bootstrap values for a total of 100 replicates are shown at the nodes of the tree. The plasmid pCW7 (a pT181 type RCR plasmid) was used as an out-group. Bar 1% sequence divergence.

Mentions: For a comparative analysis of replication proteins encoded by lactococcal plasmids, a phylogenetic analysis of 96 Rep proteins from lactococcal plasmids and 3 Rep proteins from pUB110, pA1, pCW7 was performed, and it categorized lactococcal plasmids into two groups based on their Rep proteins (Figure 1).
