Azospirillum brasilense shows chemotaxis to a variety of nutrients and oxygen. Genes encoding the central signal transduction pathway in chemotaxis were identified by phenotypic complementation of generally non-chemotactic mutants. Sequencing of a DNA fragment, which complemented two different mutants, revealed a region of five open reading frames translated in one direction and encoding homologs of known genes comprising excitation and adaptation pathways for chemotaxis in other bacterial… CONTINUE READING
