Regulation of Nif Gene Expression in Free-Living Diazotrophs: Recent Advances
- 23 Downloads
The prospects for a detailed understanding of many aspects of nif regulation at the molecular level are now extremely good with progressively more aspects of the system becoming tractable in vitro. Structural information on homologous systems is offering new insights into mechanistic aspects of these processes and, as the history of this field of research clearly shows, many of these studies continue to have major implications in other areas of prokaryotic biology.
