Synthesis of the compatible solute proline by Bacillus subtilis: point mutations rendering the osmotically controlled proHJ promoter hyperactive.


The ProJ and ProH enzymes of Bacillus subtilis catalyse together with ProA (ProJ-ProA-ProH), osmostress-adaptive synthesis of the compatible solute proline. The proA-encoded gamma-glutamyl phosphate reductase is also used for anabolic proline synthesis (ProB-ProA-ProI). Transcription of the proHJ operon is osmotically inducible whereas that of the proBA… (More)
