ArsH is widely distributed in bacteria, and its function remains to be characterized. In this study, we investigated the function of ArsH from Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803. The inactivation of arsH by insertion of a kanamycin-resistance gene in Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 resulted in the decrease of arsenic and chromium accumulation compared with the wild type. ArsH expression in Escherichia coli strain Rosetta increased its resistance to chromate by reducing chromate in the medium and cells to… CONTINUE READING
