Gene expression analysis of energy metabolism mutants of Desulfovibrio vulgaris Hildenborough indicates an important role for alcohol dehydrogenase.


Comparison of the proteomes of the wild-type and Fe-only hydrogenase mutant strains of Desulfovibrio vulgaris Hildenborough, grown in lactate-sulfate (LS) medium, indicated the near absence of open reading frame 2977 (ORF2977)-coded alcohol dehydrogenase in the hyd mutant. Hybridization of labeled cDNA to a macroarray of 145 PCR-amplified D. vulgaris genes… (More)
