Two roles for aconitase in the regulation of tricarboxylic acid branch gene expression in Bacillus subtilis.


Previously, it was shown that an aconitase (citB) null mutation results in a vast overaccumulation of citrate in the culture fluid of growing Bacillus subtilis cells, a phenotype that causes secondary effects, including the hyperexpression of the citB promoter. B. subtilis aconitase is a bifunctional protein; to determine if either or both activities of… (More)
