Abstract

The nucleotide sequence of a 12361 bp DNA segment in the 76 region of the chromosome has been determined. Ten putative ORFs were identified. The deduced amino acid sequences of the products of two of them ( and ) exhibited high similarity to those of (6-phospho-β-glucosidase gene) and [permease (the IIC domain) of the phosphotransferase system (PTS)], respectively, in the operon of . The C-terminal region of Glv-2 exhibited similarity to the entire region of GlvB (the IIB domain of PTS) of , suggesting fusion of the and genes in and seem to form an operon of a phosphoenolpyruvate:sugar PTS, followed by a presumed four-membered operon of an ABC transport system. Moreover, a presumed sugar symporter and its regulatory genes were located in this region.
