Genetic and molecular characterization of the genes involved in short-chain fatty acid degradation in Escherichia coli: the ato system.

Abstract

The structural organization and regulation of the genes involved in short-chain fatty acid degradation in Escherichia coli, referred to as the ato system, have been studied by a combination of classic genetic and recombinant DNA techniques. A plasmid containing a 6.2-kilobase region of the E. coli chromosome was able to complement mutations in the ato… (More)
