  • In R. capsulatus synthesis and activity of the molybdenum and the alternative nitrogenase is controlled at three levels by the environmental factors ammonium, molybdenum, light, and oxygen. At the first level, transcription of the nifA1, nifA2, and anfA genes--which encode the transcriptional activators of all other nif and anf genes, respectively--is controlled by the Ntr system in dependence on ammonium availability. Mutations in ginB (coding for the signal transduction protein PII) result in… CONTINUE READING
