Characterization of two carotenoid gene promoters in the cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803.

Abstract

The in vivo promoter activity of the 5'-region of the genes encoding the carotenogenic enzymes phytoene desaturase (crtP) and phytoene synthase (crtB) from the cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 has been studied by deletion mapping, primer extension, Northern blot, and using the chloramphenicol acetyltransferase (cat) reporter gene. crtP and crtB are… (More)
