The gene encoding thioredoxin in the facultative heterotrophic cyanobacterium Synechocytis sp. PCC 6803 (trxA) has been cloned by heterologous hybridization using the corresponding gene trxM from the cyanobacterium Anacystis nidulans as a probe. The deduced amino acid sequence of trxA predicts a protein of relative molecular weight of 11,750 and has strong identity with its cyanobacterial counterparts and other m-type thioredoxins of photo-synthetic eukaryotes. The trxA gene has been expressed… CONTINUE READING
