Abstract
Deletion of tRNA modification enzymes gidA and mnmE significantly attenuated Salmonella virulence. Transcriptome and proteome analyses indicated that expression of several virulence factors was significantly altered. Mice immunized with the gidA mutant were protected against a lethal dose of wild-type (WT). The mechanistic basis of protection afforded by immunization of mice with the gidA mutant was investigated using flow cytometry and several immunological techniques. Data from this study indicated that both humoral and cellular immunity played a role with the humoral immune response potentially being the main mechanism of protection. GidA together with MnmE thought to catalyze modification of tRNA which is required for correct translation during gene expression. Examination of relative contribution of GidA and MnmE in modulation of Salmonella virulence indicated various degree of attenuation and that GidA and MnmE bind together and alters Salmonella tRNA modification. GidB, a methyltransferase enzyme, was identified as being responsible for methylation of 16S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) in Escherichia coli and other bacteria. Deletion of Salmonella gidB gene indicated a compromised overall bacterial fitness, significantly reduced motility and showed a filamentous morphology under the stress of nalidixic acid. Most importantly, deletion of gidB conferred high-level resistance to the aminoglycoside antibiotics streptomycin and neomycin. This study determined the methylation site for the WT Salmonella. Taken together, these data indicated that GidA, GidB and MnmE enzymes play a significant role in modulation of biological and virulence characteristics and alteration of antibiotic susceptibility in Salmonella under stress conditions.
