The present invention provides the isolated genes encoding marine melA from the genus Shewanella, especially from the species S. colwelliana, and the melA encoded thereby in homogeneous form. Further, the invention provides antibodies to marine melA as well as methods of using the melA to induce oyster larval settlement. Moreover, these marine melA genes are also useful as selectable markers for genetic engineering.
