The srfA locus of Bacillus subtilis is defined by a transposon Tn917 insertion and is required for production of the peptide secondary metabolite surfactin. The srfA locus was isolated by cloning the DNA flanking srfA::Tn917 insertions followed by chromosome walking. The cloned region is an operon of over 25 kb which covers the transcription initiation region but not the intact 3' end of srfA. csh-293, which was previously identified as a Tn917lac mutation that impairs competence development… CONTINUE READING
