  • The enzymes for catabolism of the pentitols D-arabinitol (Dal) and ribitol (Rbt) and the corresponding genes from Klebsiella pneumoniae (dal and rbt) and Escherichia coli (atl and rtl) have been used intensively in experimental evolutionary studies. Four dal and four rbt genes from the chromosome of K. pneumoniae 1033-5P14 were cloned and sequenced. These genes are clustered in two adjacent but divergently transcribed operons and separated by two convergently transcribed repressor genes, dalR… CONTINUE READING
