 Bacillus megaterium shows diauxic growth in minimal medium containing glucose and xylose. We have examined the influence of three elements that regulate xyl operon expression on diauxic growth and expression of a xylA-lacZ fusion. xylA is 13-fold repressed during growth on glucose. Induction occurs at the onset of the lag phase after glucose is consumed. Inactivation of xylR yields a two-fold increase in expression of xylA on glucose. Deletion of the catabolite responsive element (cre) has a… CONTINUE READING
