Expression of GFP in Bacillus subtilis

Dear Dr. Xu,

  C.D. Webb et al (1997) Cell 88:667-674 and (1995) J. Bacteriol.

  The 1997 paper is in the March 7 issue and uses the very slick GFP-LacI
binding to tandem repeats of the Lac operator. See also Straight et al
(1996) Current Biology 6:1599-1608 and Robinett et al (1996) J. Cell Biol.
135:1685-1700 for use in other cell types and applications.


p.s. You could have found the Webb et al (1995) paper with a Medline title
search of "green" and "subtilis".
