- ... To identify genes that enable the enteric redmouth disease bacterium, Yersinia ruckeri, to persist in salmonid fish, 1056 signature-tagged mini-Tn5Km2 transposon mutants of a serotype 1 strain of Y. ruckeri, RS1154, were screened in rainbow trout by immersion infection. Two rounds of screening in fish identified 25 mutants that were not re-isolated from the kidney, 7 days post-infection. Six mutan ...
