Methylobacterium extorquens AM1 produces pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ), the prosthetic group of methanol dehydrogenase. Two genes clusters have been shown to be required for PQQ biosynthesis in this micro-organism and complementation analysis has identified seven pqq genes, pqqDGCBA and pqqEF. The DNA sequence of pqqDGC' was reported previously. This paper reports the sequence of the genomic region corresponding to pqqC'BA. For consistency, the nomenclature of pqq genes in Klebsiella… CONTINUE READING
