Molecular cloning and sequencing of a gene from alkaliphilic Bacillus firmus OF4 that functionally complements an Escherichia coli strain carrying a deletion in the nhaA Na+/H+ antiporter gene.

Abstract

A gene has been cloned from a DNA library from alkaliphilic Bacillus firmus OF4 that functionally complements a mutant strain of Escherichia coli, NM81, that carries a deletion for one of that strain's Na+/H+ antiporter genes (delta nhaA). The cloned alkaliphile gene restored to NM81 the ability to grow at pH 7.5 in the presence of 0.6 M NaCl and on 100 mM… (More)
