We are currently working on such a bacteria Serratia entomophila (gram neg,
aerobic), and find that genes that we clone into E. coli work fine under their
native promotors (chitinase, pili recA genes to name a few)

These genes have been cloned into a variety of vectors such as pBR322, pACYC184
and cosmids.

Also have a look at Gene 131 (1993) 79-82, and Gene 130 (1993) 121-126

Good luck
