Abstract

The regulatory region of Thiobacillus ferrooxidans leuB genewas analyzed. The deletion analysis indicated that the promotersequences CA TCCG and T A TT AT, which were similar to the consensus-35 and -10 sequences of Escherichia coli, respectively, existed. The transcriptional initiation site was located at the positionof cytosine - 26. The deletion analysis of the upstream regionsuggested the existence of a regulatory region by leucine and theregion related to transcription of the gene.
