Letter to the Editor: Backbone NMR assignments of a cyanobacterial transcriptional factor, SmtB, that binds zinc ions.


In Synechococcus PCC7942, the smt locus is responsible for tolerance to zinc and cadmium. This was verified by deletion of the smt locus, which caused a reduction in zinc/cadmium tolerance (Turner et al., 1993). In the smt locus, there are two divergently transcribed genes, smtA and smtB. The smtA gene encodes class II metallothionein (56 amino acid… (More)
