The coding region for lithotrophic sulfur oxidation (Sox) in Paracoccus denitrificans GB17 was identified by isolation of a transposon Tn5-mob mutant with a Sox- phenotype (strain TP19). The corresponding wild-type region was cloned previously (G. Mittenhuber, K. Sonomoto, M. Egert, and C. G. Friedrich, J. Bacteriol. 173:7340-7344, 1991). Sequence analysis of a 2.5-kb subclone that complemented strain TP19 revealed that Tn5-mob was inserted into a coding region for a 553-amino-acid polypeptide… CONTINUE READING
