Analysis of the Neisseria gonorrhoeae DNA sequence database revealed the presence of two genes, one encoding a protein predicted to be 37. 5% identical (50% similar) in amino acid sequence to the Escherichia coli FNR protein and the other encoding a protein 41% and 42% identical (54 and 51% sequence similarity) to the E. coli NarL and NarP proteins(More)
Escherichia coli MelR protein is a transcription activator that is essential for melibiose-dependent expression of the melAB genes. We have used chromatin immunoprecipitation to study the binding of MelR and RNA polymerase to the melAB promoter in vivo. Our results show that MelR is associated with promoter DNA, both in the absence and presence of the(More)
RNA was isolated from cultures of Escherichia coli strain MG1655 and derivatives defective in fnr, narXL, or narXL with narP, during aerobic growth, or anaerobic growth in the presence or absence of nitrate or nitrite, in non-repressing media in which both strain MG1655 and an fnr deletion mutant grew at similar rates. Glycerol was used as the(More)
Neisseria gonorrhoeae is a prolific source of c-type cytochromes. Five of the constitutively expressed cytochromes are predicted, based on in silico analysis of the N. gonorrhoeae genome, to be components of the cytochrome bc1 complex, cytochrome c oxidase cbb3 or periplasmic cytochromes involved in electron transfer reactions typical of a bacterium with a(More)
