A gene coding for a catalase-peroxidase activity was identified on a 9-7 kb Smal DNA fragment derived from the large plasmid pO157 of enterohaemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) O157:H7 strain EDL 933. Nucleotide sequencing revealed an ORF of 2208 bp and predicted a 736 amino acid polypeptide with a molecular mass of 81.8 kDa. This putative protein was found to be highly homologous to members of the bacterial bifunctional catalase-peroxidase family. Analysis of its amino acid sequence revealed… CONTINUE READING
