Induction of the CO-oxidizing system of the photosynthetic bacterium Rhodospirillum rubrum is regulated at the level of gene expression by the presence of CO. In this paper, we describe the identification of a gene that is required for CO-induced gene expression. An 11-kb deletion of the region adjacent to the previously characterized cooFSCTJ region resulted in a mutant unable to synthesize CO dehydrogenase in response to CO and unable to grow utilizing CO as an energy source. A 2.5-kb region… CONTINUE READING
