Regulation of adenylate cyclase synthesis in Escherichia coli: nucleotide sequence of the control region.

The regulatory region of the cya gene from Escherichia coli has been characterized by nucleotide sequence analysis and genetic approaches. Two promoters, P1 and P2, organized in that order with respect to the beginning of the cya open reading frame, were identified. Using cya-lac operon and protein fusions, it was possible to show that both promoters are… (More)
