    View publication on PubMed


Cloned (Comment) Organism
gene dszA, recombinant expression of the complete dszABC operon, revealing that the ratio of mRNA quantity of dszA, dszB, and dszC is 11:3.3:1, the expression level of dszB is far lower than that of dszC. The termination codon of dszA and the initiation codon of dszB overlap, whereas there is a 13-bp gap between genes dszB and dszC. Quantitative analysis of dsz operon transcription by real-time PCR Rhodococcus erythropolis

additional information removal of the 13-bp gap between genes dszB and dszC from the dszABC operon of wild-type strain D-1 results in a 5fold increased desulfurization activity of resting Rhodococcus erythropolis cells with redesigned dsc operon, termed strain D-2 Rhodococcus erythropolis
