Intraspecies and intergenus complementation analysis were utilized to demonstrate that photosynthesis genes are clustered in distantly related purple photosynthetic bacteria. Specifically, we show that the linkage order for genes involved in bacteriochlorophyll and carotenoid biosynthesis in Rhodospirillum centenum are arranged essentially as in Rhodobacter capsulatus and Rhodobacter sphaeroides. In addition, the location and relative distance observed between the puf and puh operons which… CONTINUE READING
