  • Plasmid pPB confers broad-spectrum mercury resistance (HgR) to a Pseudomonas stutzeri strain. Two pPB regions, separated by 25-30 kb and sharing homology with Tn501 mer (Hg detoxification) genes, were cloned separately and each was shown to carry a cluster of functional and independently regulated mer genes. One of the two gene clusters conferred resistance only to inorganic mercury, and had a structure identical to the classical model of narrow-spectrum mer operons. In the other cluster a… CONTINUE READING
