abstract The minimal region encoding the Corynebacterium glutamicum threonine synthase structural gene and its promoter was mapped by deletion analysis and complementation of the C. glutamicum thrC allele to a 1.6 kb region of the recombinant plasmid pFS80. The nucleotide sequence of this and flanking DNA was determined. The transcription and translation start points were identified by S1 mapping analysis and amino-terminal protein sequencing, respectively. The thrC gene encodes a 54481-Dalton polypeptide product. Translation of the thrC mRNA initiates only six nucleotides downstream from transcription. The length of the mRNA transcript is consistent with a single gene transcription unit. The C. glutamicum thrC gene is expressed independently of the other threonine- specific genes hom and thrB.
