Abstract

A bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) library was constructed for the genome of the rhizosphere-inhabiting fluorescent pseudomonad Pseudomonas synxantha BG33R. Three thousand BAC clones with an average insert size of 140 kbp and representing a 70-fold genomic coverage were generated and arrayed onto nylon membranes. EcoRI fingerprint analysis of 986 BAC clones generated 23 contigs and 75 singletons. Hybridization analysis allowed us to order the 23 contigs and condense them into a single contig, yielding an estimated genome size of 5.1 Mb for P. synxantha BG33R. A minimum-tile path of 47 BACs was generated and end-sequenced. The genetic loci involved in ring nematode egg-kill factor production in BG33R Tn5 mutants, 246 (vgrG homolog), 1122 (sensor kinase homolog), 1233 (UDP-galactose epimerase homolog), 1397 (ferrisiderophore receptor homolog), and 1917 (ribosomal subunit protein homolog), have been mapped onto the minimum-tile BAC library. Two of the genetic regions that flank Tn5 insertions in BG33R egg-kill-negative mutants 1233 and 1397 are separated by a single BAC clone. Fragments isolated by ligation-mediated PCR of the Tn5 mutagenized regions of 29 randomly selected, non-egg-kill-related, insertion mutants have been anchored onto the ordered physical map of P. synxantha.
