Clonal analysis of the lac operons from Klebsiella M5al and the Lac plasmid (pRE2) from Klebsiella V9A.

The chromosomal lac region of the coliform bacterium Klebsiella M5al was cloned into the multicopy plasmid pBR322 to give pHE7 and pHE8. pHE8 contains 12.6 kb of M5al DNA, including its complete lac operon, and pHE7 contains 2.5 kb of M5al DNA and includes the complete lac Y gene and a small segment of lacZ. The M5al operon has the same gene order as the Escherichia coli lac operon. The lac genes of the Lac plasmid of Klebsiella V9A were cloned into pBR322 to give pHE1 and pHE2, of approximately 39 and 43 kb. Both plasmids were unstable in an E. coli RecA-strain, in contrast to the stability of pHE8. Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis tests suggested that the M5al beta-galactosidase monomer is about 5% longer, i.e. has about 50 more amino acids, than that of the E. coli Z gene. Tests made on the enzymes coded by the lac operons of M5al, another Klebsiella strain (V9A) and its resident Lac plasmid, and several Lac+ Enterobacteria, led to the conclusion that only Escherichia coli among the Enterobacteria contains an active lacA gene.[1]
