Inhibition and activation of bacterial luciferase synthesis.


Luciferase synthesis is repressed when bioluminescent bacteria are inoculated into fresh medium but is induced after the cells have grown in the medium for some time. In minimal medium, an activator which leads to induction of the enzyme is released into the medium by the bacteria. Complete medium contains a dialyzable and quite stable inhibitor which leads… (More)
