The lactose utilization genes of Staphylococcus xylosus have been isolated and characterized. The system is comprised of two structural genes, lacP and lacH, encoding the lactose permease and the beta-galactosidase proteins, respectively, and a regulatory gene, lacR, coding for an activator of the AraC/XylS family. The lactose utilization genes are divergently arranged, the lacPH genes being opposite to lacR. The lacPH genes are cotranscribed from one promoter in front of lacP, whereas lacR is… CONTINUE READING
