Abstract

Recombinant plasmids were constructed that carried various fragments of the DNA specifying the genes and (part of) , the genes for the common components of the phosphoenolpyruvate : sugar phosphotransferase. Expression of plasmid-specified functions in minicells showed that and were transcribed clockwise. Most of the transcription of was from the promoter, but some was from a second site within or after .
