Abstract:

The research objectives of this project are to define the organization and regulation of methanol oxidation genes in a Marine methane- oxidizing bacterium methylomonas sp. A4. Two of the genes have been physically mapped, MOXF and MOXI, and expression studies have identified the direction of transcription. The 5 region of MOXF has been sequenced which has identified a putative promoter sequence. The promoter region for MOXF will be confirmed and studied in the next year.
