概要 We surveyed the distribution of these genes and their activities in 14 strains from culture collections. The nitrogenase genes include nif1 encoding a Mo-type nitrogenase expressed in heterocysts, nif2 expressed in vegetative cells and heterocysts under anaerobic conditions, and vnf encoding a V-type nitrogenase expressed in heterocysts. We found that all 14 strains have nifD1 genes, and eight strains also have nifD2 genes. Four of the strains have vnfD genes, in addition to nifD2 genes. For surveying the distribution of hydrogenases, Southern blot hybridization was an effective method. All strains surveyed had hup genes, with the majority of them also having hox genes.
