The LuxR regulatory protein of Vibrio harveyi has been shown to control synthesis of polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) as well as luminescence so as to occur at high cell density, suggesting that it is a general regulatory protein. Mutants defective in the production of LuxR (D1, D34, and MR1130) were found to be missing PHB, whose synthesis could be restored by complementation with luxR. Triparental mating with a V. harveyi genomic library revealed the presence of three genomic clones (G1, G2 and G3… CONTINUE READING
