The hetR gene plays an important role in heterocyst development and pattern formation in heterocystous cyanobacteria. The hetR gene from Anabaena sp. PCC 7120 was overexpressed in Escherichia coli. Antibodies raised against the recombinant HetR protein (rHetR) were used to characterize metabolism of the HetR of Anabaena sp. PCC 7120 in vivo. HetR was present at a low level when Anabaena sp. PCC 7120 was grown in the presence of combined nitrogen. Shifting from nitrogen repletion conditions to… CONTINUE READING
