Abstract

During the differentiation of nitrogen-fixing heterocysts from photosynthetic vegetative cells of the cyanobacterium Anabaena, two DNA rearrangements have been observed. One is the excision, by site-specific recombination between directly repeated sequences, of an 11-kbp element that interrupts the nifD gene. The second occurs next to the nifS gene and involves a different site-specific recombination system.
