The rpoN region of Rhizobium etli was isolated by using the Bradyrhizobium japonicum rpoN1 gene as a probe. Nucleotide sequence analysis of a 5,600-bp DNA fragment of this region revealed the presence of four complete open reading frames (ORFs), ORF258, rpoN, ORF191, and ptsN, coding for proteins of 258, 520, 191, and 154 amino acids, respectively. The gene(More)
We report the isolation, mutational analysis and the nucleotide sequence of the Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. phaseoli nifA gene. Comparison of the deduced amino acid sequence with other NifA sequences indicated the presence of the conserved central activator and the C-terminal DNA-binding domains. Nodules elicited by a R. leguminosarum bv. phaseoli nifA(More)
The fixLJ genes of Rhizobium leguminosarum biovar phaseoli CNPAF512 were identified by DNA hybridization of a genomic library with an internal fragment of the Rhizobium meliloti fixJ gene. The nucleotide sequence was determined and the corresponding amino acid sequence was aligned with the amino acid sequences of the FixL proteins of R. meliloti,(More)
Sequence analysis upstream of the Rhizobium etli fixLJ homologous genes revealed the presence of three open reading frames homologous to the arcABC genes of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The P. aeruginosa arcABC genes code for the enzymes of the arginine deiminase pathway: arginine deiminase, catabolic ornithine carbamoyltransferase (cOTCase), and carbamate(More)
Recently a chromosomal locus possibly specific for Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium DT104 has been reported that contains a multiple antibiotic resistance gene cluster. Evidence is provided that Salmonella enterica serovar Agona strains isolated from poultry harbor a similar gene cluster including the newly described floR gene, conferring(More)
The central heme-binding domain in the FixL proteins of Sinorhizobium meliloti, Bradyrhizobium japonicum, Rhizobium leguminosarum biovar viciae and Azorhizobium caulinodans, is highly conserved. The similarity with the corresponding domain in the Rhizobium etli FixL protein is considerably less. This observation prompted us to analyze the heme-binding(More)
