The Desulfovibrio gigas nifH gene has been cloned and sequenced. It consists of an open-reading frame of 822 base pairs encoding a 274 amino acid polypeptide. A potential ntrA-dependent promotor sequence is present. The gene lacks an upstream activator sequence homologous to those often found in nif genes subject to activation by nifA.
