Abstract

The pnuC gene, which encodes a component of the nicotinamide mononucleotide transport system, has been mapped and oriented. The gene order of the pnuC region, which is at min 17 of the Salmonella chromosome, is nadA-pnuC-aroG-gal. Polarity tests, with pnuC::Mu d-lac operon fusions, reveal that the pnuC gene is the promoter distal gene in an operon with the nadA gene, which encodes the second enzyme of the pyridine biosynthetic pathway. The nadA pnuC operon is regulated by the NadI repressor. The pnuC gene also has its own promoter, since strains with a nadA::Tn10d(Tc) insertion still express the pnuC gene at a low, unregulated level.
