Plasmids having the structural gene of nisin (nis A) combined with the subtilin or two hybrid subtilin-nisin leaders were integrated into the subtilin operon in the chromosome of a nisin-resistant and subtilin-producing strain of B. subtilis by single crossing over. Nisin was produced only when the leader consisted mainly of the nisin part. This indicates(More)
