    ..These and other results lead us to propose that (i) brp gene expression can affect bat gene expression and (ii) the putative bat gene is involved in activating bop and brp gene expression...

    ..Our results suggest that the ORF is a gene (designated bat for bacterio-opsin activator gene) involved in bop gene expression...

    ..Additional experiments have confirmed that one of the genes of the bop gene cluster, the bat gene, encodes a trans-acting factor that is necessary and sufficient to confer inducibility of purple membrane synthesis by low oxygen tension...
