Genes from the cyanobacterium Agmenellum quadruplicatum isolated by complementation: characterization and production of merodiploids.


The isolation of several biosynthetic genes from a cyanobacterium, Agmenellum quadruplicatum, by complementation of auxotrophic mutations in Escherichia coli, and their partial characterization, is described. Although our search for such genes has not been exhaustive, it appears that complementation of E. coli mutations may be of limited utility for the… (More)
