The sequence of aceK, which codes for the regulatory catalytic enzyme isocitrate dehydrogenase kinase/phosphatase (IDH K/P), and sequences of the 5' flanking region and part or all of the 3' flanking region were determined for 32 strains of Salmonella enterica and Escherichia coli. In E. coli, the aceK gene was 1734 bp long in 13 strains, but in three strains it was 12 bp shorter and the stop codon was TAA rather than TGA. Strains with the shorter aceK lacked an open reading frame (f728… CONTINUE READING
