The deleterious effect of the mutation of Asp-285 to Asn of the metal-tetracycline/H+ antiporter (TetA) of Escherichia coli is suppressed by the second-site mutation of Ala-220 to an acidic amino acid residue (Yamaguchi, A., O'yauchi, R., Someya, Y., & Sawai, T. (1993) J. Biol. Chem. 268, 26990-26995). In this study, site-specific second-site Glu mutants as to 11 different positions around position 220 were established from the Asp-285-->Asn mutant TetA protein. Among them, only the Ala-220… CONTINUE READING
