Cloning, DNA sequencing, and characterization of a nifD-homologous gene from the archaeon Methanosarcina barkeri 227 which resembles nifD1 from the eubacterium Clostridium pasteurianum.

Abstract

L. Sibold, M. Henriquet, O. Possot, and J.-P. Aubert (Res. Microbiol. 142:5-12, 1991) cloned and sequenced two nifH-homologous open reading frames (ORFs) from Methanosarcina barkeri 227. Phylogenetic analysis of the deduced amino acid sequences of the nifH ORFs from M. barkeri showed that nifH1 clusters with nifH genes from alternative nitrogenases, while… (More)
