The bop gene cluster consists of at least three genes: bop (bacterio-opsin), brp (bacterio-opsin-related protein), and bat (bacterio-opsin activator). We have quantitated transcript levels from these genes in a wild-type and bacterioruberin-deficient mutant of Halobacterium halobium under conditions which affect purple membrane synthesis. In wild-type cultures grown under high oxygen tension in the dark, bop and bat transcript levels were low during steady-state growth and then increased… CONTINUE READING
