Identification of three genes encoding P(II)-like proteins in Gluconacetobacter diazotrophicus: studies of their role(s) in the control of nitrogen fixation.

Abstract

In our studies on the regulation of nitrogen metabolism in Gluconacetobacter diazotrophicus, an endophytic diazotroph of sugarcane, three glnB-like genes were identified and their role(s) in the control of nitrogen fixation was studied. Sequence analysis revealed that one P(II) protein-encoding gene, glnB, was adjacent to a glnA gene (encoding glutamine… (More)
