Expression of the tutE tutFDGH gene cluster of Thauera aromatica strain T1 was examined by Northern and Western analysis in a wild-type strain and chromosomally deleted strains with or without in-frame deletion plasmids. While expression was observed when the wild-type strain was induced with toluene, various chromosomally deleted strains exhibited little or no expression of the tut genes. In contrast, both wild-type and chromosomally deleted strains expressed the tut genes when induced with benzylsuccinate. We conclude that benzylsuccinate is required for the full induction of the tutE tutFDGH gene cluster of T. aromatica strain T1. © 2004 Federation of European Microbiological Societies.
