In addition to Joe's comments, I believe
deBoer, H.A. & Kastelein, R.A. (1986) in Maximizing Gene Expression, eds.
Rezinkoff, W & Gold, L. (BUtterworth, Stoneham, MA). pp. 225-285.
is an excellent reference.
Also Springer and Sligar have used this information in the "High-Level
expression of Sperm Whale Myoglobin in E. coli" in PNAS 84:8961-8965 (1987)
for an example of its use.
