The tol-oprL region in Pseudomonas aeruginosa appears to be involved in pyocin uptake and required for cell viability. The complete nucleotide sequences of the tolQRA and oprL genes as well as the incomplete sequences of tolB and orf2 have been previously reported. In addition, the sequence of a P. aeruginosa iron-regulated gene (pig6) has been described and found to share homology with an open reading frame located upstream of the Escherichia coli tolQRA genes (U.
