trans activation of the Escherichia coliato structural genes by a regulatory protein from Bacillus megaterium : potential use in polyhydroxyalkanoate production


A Bacillus megaterium genomic fragment, which encoded an activator homologous to σ54 regulators and which was capable of activating Escherichia coli ato genes in trans, was detected in a gene library of B.␣megaterium screened for β-ketothiolase activity. The fragment presented only one complete open reading frame (ORF1), which encoded a protein of 398 amino… (More)
