Seven genes, napKEFDABC, encoding the periplasmic nitrate reductase system were cloned from the denitrifying phototrophic bacterium Rhodobacter sphaeroides f. sp. denitrificans IL106. Two transmembrane proteins, NapK and NapE, an iron-sulfur protein NapF, a soluble protein NapD, a catalytic subunit of nitrate reductase precursor NapA, a soluble c-type diheme cytochrome precursor NapB, and a membrane-anchored c-type tetraheme cytochrome NapC were deduced as the gene products. Every mutant in… CONTINUE READING
