The cloning of the and genes and their nucleotide sequences are reported. Analysis of mRNA indicates that and constitute one operon which is transcribed from a sigma A type promoter. The steady state amount of mRNA is increased in cells grown in the presence of glycerol 3-phosphate. The 5′ untranslated leader sequence of mRNA contains an inverted repeat which shows sequence similarity to repeats present in the leader sequences of and transcripts. These repeats seem therefore to be essential control elements for all genes.
