High impact information on areA

  • The effects of the mutations on areCBA expression were measured by enzyme assays of benzyl alcohol dehydrogenase (AreB) and by reporter gene assays of lacZ inserted into areA [1].
  • The areA, areB, and areC genes were individually disrupted on the chromosome by insertion of a kanamycin resistance cassette, and the rates at which the resultant strains utilized substrates of the aryl ester catabolic pathway were severely reduced as determined by growth competitions between the mutant and wild-type strains [2].
