Orthologs of Escherichia coli ygjD and yeaZ genes are highly conserved in various organisms. The genome of the radioresistant bacterium Deinococcus radiodurans possesses single orthologs of ygjD (DR_0382) and yeaZ (DR_0756). Complete loss of either one or both genes did not result in any significant changes in cell growth efficiency, indicating that both genes are not essential for cell viability in D. radiodurans, unlike the case with other species such as E. coli, Bacillus subtilis and… Expand
