The general amino acid permease of Rhizobium leguminosarum strain 3841 is negatively regulated by the Ntr system.

Cosmid-borne and chromosomal lacZ fusions to aapJ. aapQ and aapM were used to examine the nitrogen regulation of the general amino acid permease (Aap) of Rhizobium leguminosarum strain 3841. Transcription of the first gene of the operon (aapJ), which encodes the periplasmic binding protein, was 2-4-fold higher than aapQ and aapM, which encode the integral… CONTINUE READING
