gene nosZ, expression as nosRZD transcript, quantitative PCR-based expression analysis
gene nosZ, transcription of nosZ takes place concomitantly with that of narG under suboxic conditions. Catalytically functional N2OR is synthesized and active in aerobically raised cells transferred to vials with 7 vol% O2 in headspace, but N2O reduction rates are 10 times higher when anaerobic precultures are subjected to the same conditions. Upon oxygen exposure, there is an incomplete and transient inactivation of N2OR that can be ascribed to its lower ability to compete for electrons compared with terminal oxidases, quantitative real-time PCR enzyme expression analysis
-
the gene encoding the enzyme in the nos cluster is cloned from a genomic library
