Complex formation by the mrpABCDEFG gene products, which constitute a principal Na+/H+ antiporter in Bacillus subtilis.


The Bacillus subtilis Mrp (also referred to as Sha) is a particularly unusual Na(+)/H(+) antiporter encoded by mrpABCDEFG. Using His tagging of Mrp proteins, we showed complex formation by the mrpABCDEFG gene products by pull-down and blue native polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis analyses. This is the first molecular evidence that the Mrp is a… (More)
