Glucose is the preferred carbon and energy source of Bacillus subtilis. It is transported into the cell by the glucose-specific phosphoenolpyruvate:sugar phosphotransferase system (PTS) encoded by the ptsGHI locus. We show here that these three genes (ptsG, ptsH, and ptsI) form an operon, the expression of which is inducible by glucose. In addition, ptsH and ptsl form a constitutive ptsHI operon. The promoter of the ptsGHI operon was mapped and expression from this promoter was found to be… CONTINUE READING
