Xylose utilization mutants of Streptomyces violaceoniger were isolated lacking one or both of the enzymes, glucose isomerase (xylose isomerase) and xylulose kinase. Using pUT206 as a cloning vector, complementation of the glucose isomerase negative phenotype with fragments of the S. violaceoniger chromosome permitted isolation of two recombinant plasmids,(More)
Crystals of the tetrameric xylose isomerase from Streptomyces violaceoniger have been examined by x-ray analysis. Octahedral crystals with a maximum dimension of 0.7 mm were grown from ammonium sulfate solution. They possess the symmetry of P4(1)2(1)2 or P4(3)2(1)2 space groups, which are crystallographically indistinguishable. The unit cell dimensions are(More)
Maximum expression of the Corynebacterium glutamicum lysA gene is dependent upon the presence of a 2.3 kb region immediately 5' of the lysA reading frame. Subcloning and functional analysis of the upstream region implied that this region contained the lysA promoter. Sequence determination of the upstream region revealed a single open reading frame, orfX, in(More)
