Two genes involved in iron utilization in Campylobacter coli VC167 T1 have been characterized. The cfrA gene encodes a protein with a predicted Mr of 77,653 which, after processing of the leader sequence, has a predicted Mr of 75,635. This protein has significant sequence identity to siderophore receptors of several bacteria, and site-specific mutants defective in cfrA do not synthesize one of two major iron-repressible outer membrane proteins. An adjacent gene encodes a TonB-like protein; a… CONTINUE READING
