The shxVW genes of Paracoccus pantotrophus were identified to be essential for lithotrophic oxidation of sulfur and hydrogen. shxV predicts a membrane protein which is 42% identical to CcdA of P. pantotrophus essential for cytochrome c biogenesis. shxW predicts a periplasmic thioredoxin. Disruption of shxV by an Omega-kanamycin interposon disabled the resulting mutant GB(Omega)V to grow with thiosulfate or molecular hydrogen and to express ShxW while cytochrome c formation was not affected… CONTINUE READING
