Porphyromonas gingivalis HmuY is a putative heme-binding lipoprotein associated with the outer membrane. It is part of an operon together with a gene encoding an outer-membrane hemin utilization receptor (HmuR) and four uncharacterized genes. A similar operon organization was found in Bacteroides fragilis and B. thetaiotaomicron, with the former containing… CONTINUE READING
