The genes encoding the desulforubidin type of dissimilatory sulfite reductase (Dsr) from the sulfate-reducing bacteria Desulfobacter vibrioformis and Desulfobulbus rhabdoformis were cloned and sequenced. Similar to the genes for dissimilatory sulfite reductase from the genera Archaeoglobus, Desulfovibrio and Desulfotomaculum the dsr genes were found to form an operon, dsrABD, where dsrA and dsrB encode the structural subunits, K and L, of Dsr, respectively. dsrD encodes a conserved unknown… CONTINUE READING
