Abstract

Summary: Operon fusions were isolated between Mu dX ( Cm Ap) and , the gene encoding the multivalent vitamin B outer membrane receptor. Using these fusions, vitamin B-mediated repression of in was demonstrated. Mutations in and as well as exogenous methionine, membrane pertubants, high osmolar conditions and temperature had no major effect on the expression of the gene.
