Identification of a new class of nitrogen fixation genes in Rhodobacter capsalatus: a putative membrane complex involved in electron transport to nitrogenase


DNA sequence analysis of a 12236 by fragment, which is located upstream of nifE in Rhodobacter capsulatus nif region A, revealed the presence of ten open reading frames. With the exception of fdxC and fdxN, which encode a plant-type and a bacterial-type ferredoxin, the deduced products of these coding regions exhibited no significant homology to known… (More)
