  • The nucleotide sequence of the Escherichia coli fep genomic region has been determined. Three new loci were identified. One of these, P43, encodes a membrane protein that is not essential for ferric enterobactin transport. Two others, fepD and fepG, were found to be essential for transport and their translational products showed extensive homology to other integral membrane proteins involved in TonB-dependent transport processes. The FepC amino acid sequence suggested a peripheral membrane… CONTINUE READING
