Abstract

Genes from the eubacterium typically do not share promoter consensus sequences with those of and are not expressed when cloned in ; nevertheless, the major σ-subunit identified from has nearly identical amino acid sequence to σ in regions that contact DNA. Following expression of the chlamydial σ-subunit gene in , expression was specifically initiated from chlamydial promoter regions. Selective recognition of chlamydial promoters by holoenzyme was dependent upon the structure of the promoter DNA coupled with novel amino-and carboxyl-terminal extensions of the chlamydial σ-subunit.
