A 15 kilobase HindIII fragment of Klebsiella pneumoniae DNA containing the glnA gene was cloned into the plasmid vector pACYC184. The resulting plasmid, pFB51, complements glnA - mutations in Escherichia coli and K. pneumoniae. pFB51 also complements the GlnR phenotype of a Klebsiella pneumoniae gln regulatory mutant (KP5060) defined by the restoration of… CONTINUE READING
