    Gas vesicle formation in haloarchaea requires the expression of the p-vac region consisting of 14 genes, gvpACNO and gvpDEFGHIJKLM. Expression of gvpFGHIJKLM leads to essential accessory proteins formed in minor amounts. An overexpression of gvpG, gvpH or gvpM in addition to p-vac inhibited gas...
