Rhodobacter sphaeroides 2.4.1, which is incapable of denitrification, has been found to carry nnrR, the nor operon, and nnrS, which are utilized for denitrification in R. sphaeroides 2.4.3. The gene encoding nitrite reductase was not found in 2.4.1. Expression of β-galactosidase activity from a norB-lacZ fusion was activated when cells of 2.4.1 were incubated with NO-producing bacteria. This result indicates that the products of nnrR and the genes flanking it are utilized when 2.4.1 is growing in an environment where denitrification occurs.
