The nitrogen fixation (nif) genes of Klebsiella pneumoniae are specifically regulated by the products of the nifLA operon. We have located the promoter of this operon, and identified sequences required for nifLA transcription. Transcription from this promoter is shown to be positively regulated by the ntrC gene product (which coordinates the expression of many operons required for nitrogen assimilation) and also autogenously by the product of the nifA gene.
