The trp operon encodes the five genes for the enzymes required to convert chorismate to tryptophan, and its switching on and off is controlled by both feedback repression and attenuation in response to different levels of tryptophan in the cell. Repression of the operon occurs when tryptophan concentration is high, and attenuation fine-tunes the(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish the methodology of plasmid for gene knock-out in Mycobacterium BCG. METHODS We designed two pairs of primers for amplification of MDP1 gene and inserted two fragments into pKO plasmid, and then the recombinant plasmid for MDP1 gene knock-out was obtained, and named pKO-MDP1. Gene exchange took place within the genome of BCG after(More)
