The target of the induction by sucrose of the levansucrase gene is a transcription terminator (sacRt) located upstream from the coding sequence, sacB. The two-gene locus sacX-sacY (formerly sacS) and the ptsI gene were previously shown to be involved in this induction. ptsI encodes enzyme I of the phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent phosphotransferase system.(More)

The adjacent sacX and sacY genes are involved in sucrose induction of the Bacillus subtilis sacB gene by an antitermination mechanism. sacB, encoding the exoenzyme levansucrase, is also subject to regulation by the DegS-DegU signalling system. Using sacXY'-lacZ and sacX'-lacZ fusions, we show that the transcription of the sacX and sacY genes is both(More)
