In previous studies with Pseudomonas chlororaphis G05, two operons (phzABCDEFG and prnABCD) were confirmed to respectively encode enzymes for biosynthesis of phenazine-1-carboxylic acid and pyrrolnitrin that mainly contributed to suppression of some fungal phytopathogens. Although some regulators were identified to govern their expression, it is not known how two operons coordinately interact. By constructing the phz- or/and prn- deletion mutants, we found that in comparison with the wild-type strain G05, phenazine-1-carboxylic acid production in the mutant G05Δprn obviously decreased in GA broth in the absence of prn, and pyrrolnitrin production in the mutant G05Δphz remarkably declined in the absence of phz. By generating the phzA and prnA transcriptional and translational fusions with a truncated lacZ on shuttle vector or on the chromosome, we found that expression of the phz or prn operon was correspondingly increased in the presence of the prn or phz operon at the post-transcriptional level, not at the transcriptional level. These results indicated that the presence of one operon would promote the expression of the other one operon between the phz and prn. This reciprocal enhancement would keep the strain G05 producing more different antifungal compounds coordinately and living better with growth suppression of other microorganisms.

A non-pathogenic species of Pseudomonas that occurs in soil, especially in the RHIZOSPHERE surrounding plant roots, as well as on the leaves of plants. It has anti-fungal and anti-nematode activities and is used in agriculture as a biocontrol agent.
Regulatory genes which encode a cyclic AMP receptor protein required for L-arabinose utilization in E. coli. It is an example of positive control or regulation of gene expression in the bacterial operon.
The expression of a gene in an abnormal place, or at an abnormal time in an organism. Ectopic Gene Expression is often induced artificially by genetic techniques.
A form of gene interaction whereby the expression of one gene interferes with or masks the expression of a different gene or genes. Genes whose expression interferes with or masks the effects of other genes are said to be epistatic to the effected genes. Genes whose expression is affected (blocked or masked) are hypostatic to the interfering genes.
A non-metabolizable galactose analog that induces expression of the LAC OPERON.
The process of gene expression is used by eukaryotes, prokaryotes, and viruses to generate the macromolecular machinery for life. Steps in the gene expression process may be modulated, including the transcription, RNA splicing, translation, and post-tran...
