The complete nucleotide sequences of the luxA to luxE genes, as well as the flanking regions, were determined for the lux operons of two Xenorhabdus luminescens strains isolated from insects and humans. The nucleotide sequences of the corresponding lux genes (luxCDABE) were 85 to 90% identical but completely diverged 350 bp upstream of the first lux gene (luxC) and immediately downstream of the last lux gene (luxE). These results show that the luxG gene found immediately downstream of luxE in… CONTINUE READING
