Rubrerythrin is a nonheme iron protein of unknown function isolated from Desulfovibrio vulgaris (Hildenborough). We have sequenced a 3.3-kbp Sal1 fragment of D. vulgaris chromosomal DNA containing the rubrerythrin gene, rbr, identified additional open reading frames (ORFs) adjacent to rbr, and shown that these ORFs are part of a transcriptional unit containing rbr. One ORF, designated fur, lies just upstream of rbr and encodes a 128-amino-acid-residue protein which shows homology to Fur (ferric… CONTINUE READING
