Intracellular iron levels and the expression of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and hydroperoxidase (HP) are regulated in Gram-negative bacteria by the iron(II)-activated ferric uptake regula- tor (Fur). We have previously observed that the expression of SOD in exponential phase Escherichia coli is dependent upon the redox state of iron in media, consistent with the ferrous specificity of Fur regulation (Bertrand et al., Med. Hypotheses 78: 130 - 133, 2012). Through the non-denaturing… CONTINUE READING
