Proteolytic cleavage of the repressor (BlaI) of beta-lactamase synthesis in Staphylococcus aureus.

Author information

  • 1Department of Biochemistry, University of Oxford, UK.

Abstract

The proteolytic cleavage of BlaI was shown to correlate with beta-lactamase synthesis in Staphylococcus aureus. BlaI was found to be autoregulatory when expressed from the blaZ promoter. Insertion of a 10-bp linker into the SnaBI site of blaRI resulted in constitutive synthesis of beta-lactamase.
