Characterization of the Δ7 Mutant of Cupriavidus metallidurans with Deletions of Seven Secondary Metal Uptake Systems


Central to the ability of Cupriavidus metallidurans to maintain its metal homoeostasis is the metal transportome, composed of uptake and efflux systems. Seven secondary metal import systems, ZupT, PitA, CorA1, CorA2, CorA3, ZntB, and HoxN, interact and are at the core of the metal uptake transportome. The 7-fold deletion mutant Δ7 (ΔzupT ΔpitA ΔcorA1ΔcorA2… (More)
