Streptomyces coelicolor Müller contains two superoxide dismutases (SODs), nickel-containing (NiSOD) and ironand zinc-containing SOD (FeZnSOD). The sodF gene encoding FeZnSOD was isolated by using PCR primers corresponding to the N-terminal peptide sequence of the purified FeZnSOD and a C-terminal region conserved among known FeSODs and MnSODs. The deduced amino acid sequence exhibited highest similarity to Mnand FeSODs from Propionibacterium shermanii and Mycobacterium spp. The transcription… CONTINUE READING
