NifA, the transcriptional activator of nitrogenase (nif) genes, has up to now been described to be regulated in its activity via the sensor NifL only for members of the gamma-subgroup of the PROTEOBACTERIA: This paper reports a functionally similar NifL-like protein outside this group in Azoarcus sp. strain BH72, a diazotrophic grass endophyte belonging to the beta-subgroup of the PROTEOBACTERIA: Its structural genes for nitrogenase (nifHDK) are regulated in response to combined nitrogen and O… CONTINUE READING
