In Klebsiella pneumoniae, Mo accumulation appeared to be coregulated with nitrogenase synthesis. O2 and NH+4, which repressed nitrogenase synthesis, also prevented Mo accumulation. In Azotobacter vinelandii, Mo accumulation did not appear to be regulated Mo was accumulated to levels much higher than those seen in K. pneumoniae even when nitrogenase synthesis was repressed. Accumulated Mo was bound mainly to a Mo storage protein, and it could act as a supply for the Mo needed in component I… CONTINUE READING
