The deletion of Ffh in Escherichia coli induces adverse physiological and morphological changes


The Escherichia coli Ffh protein is homologous to the SRP54 subunit of the eukaryotic signal recognition particle (SRP) that is involved in targeting and translocation of membrane proteins. The functions of Ffh in E. coli were investigated using the mutant with the Ffh deficiency. The mutant showed lower growth rate at 30°C and rapidly lost viability at the… (More)
