Abstract

Summary: We have previously isolated a putative promoter from the subsp. chromosome. We now report the sequence of the promoter fragment and its extension in the 5′-direction. The region contains several open-reading frames which correspond to ribosomal protein L15, SecY, adenylate kinase, initiation factor 1 and ribosomal proteins B and S13. The order of the genes, (L15), , , , (B) and (S13), is similar to that in the and α operon region of , with the exception of the gene, coding for methionine amino peptidase, which is located between and in . The putative promoter is located between and .
