The nasB operon and nasA gene are required for nitrate/nitrite assimilation in Bacillus subtilis.

By K Ogawa, E Akagawa, K Yamane, Z W Sun, M LaCelle, P Zuber and M M Nakano


Bacillus subtilis can use either nitrate or nitrite as a sole source of nitrogen. The isolation of the nasABCDEF genes of B. subtilis, which are required for nitrate/nitrite assimilation, is reported. The probable gene products include subunits of nitrate/nitrite reductases and an enzyme involved in the synthesis of siroheme, a cofactor for nitrite reductase
