The nitrogen fixation (nif) gene cluster of Klebsiella pneumoniae is linked to his, consists of at least 17 genes arranged in seven or eight operons1–4 (Fig. 1), and its expression is inhibited by oxygen (O2) and fixed nitrogen (N) including ammonia, nitrate and amino acids (see ref. 5 for review). Previous studies have suggested that the nifA and nifL gene… CONTINUE READING
