摘要: Nucleotide sequence of the regulatory region R&R* and the partial 5'-end of the cnf1 gene (GenBank Accession No. AF023157) of Vibrio fischeri ATCC 7744 has been determined, and the cytotoxic necrotizing factor 1 (CNF1) encoded by the cnf1 gene is deduced. Alignment and comparison of the cytotoxic necrotizing factor Is of V. fischeri and E. coli show that they are homologous. Nucleotide sequence reveals that the cnf1 gene is closely linked to the lux regulon in genome; the gene order of the cnf1 gene and the lux regulon is <--cnf1-R&R*<--rrn-<--luxR-R&R-luxI-luxC-luxD-luxA-luxB-luxE-luxG-Omega-->, whereas R&R is the regulatory region of the lux regulon, and R&R* is the regulatory region of the cnf1 gene; the sequence (similar to)2 kb lay between the luxR gene of the lux regulon and the cnf1 gene is an rrn-like operon. It is unexpected to find the cnf1 gene in V. fischeri, since the CNF1 protein enables necrosis; the marine luminous bacterium V. fischeri is never to be identified as a pathogenic microbe. The cnf1 gene might be concerned with symbiosis of the luminous bacteria and host fishes. (C) 1998 Academic Press.
