The cloning of the Bacillus subtilis glpT and glpQ genes and their nucleotide sequences are reported. Analysis of mRNA indicates that glpT and glpQ constitute one operon which is transcribed from a sigma A type promoter. The steady state amount of glpTQ mRNA is increased in cells grown in the presence of glycerol 3-phosphate. The 5′ untranslated leader sequence of glpTQ mRNA contains an inverted repeat which shows sequence similarity to repeats present in the leader sequences of glpFK and glpD transcripts. These repeats seem therefore to be essential control elements for all B. subtilis glp genes.
