SummaryThe plasmid-borneczc operon ensures for resistance to Cd2+, Zn2+ and Co2+ ions through a tricomponent export pathway and is associated to various conjugative plasmids ofA. eutrophus strains isolated from metal-contaminated industrial areas. Theczc region of pMOL30 was reassessed especially for the segments located upstream and downstream the structural genesczc CBA. In cultures grown with high concentrations of heavy metals,czc-mediated efflux of cations is followed by a process of metal… Expand
Genomic Context of Metal Response Genes in Cupriavidus metallidurans with a Focus on Strain CH34
TLDR
The genomic context of the metal response genes in C. metallidurans CH34 will be described with a focus on its mobilome including insertion sequence elements, transposons, integrative and conjugative elements and genomic islands. Expand

The History of Cupriavidus metallidurans Strains Isolated from Anthropogenic Environments
TLDR
The multiple metal-resistant Cupriavidus metallidurans strain CH34 genome displays a peculiar richness in mobile genetic elements (genomic islands, transposons and insertion sequences spread on the four replicons: the chromosome, the chromid (formerly second chromosome) and the megaplasmids).

TLDR
From pMOL28, one of the two heavy metal resistance plasmids of Alcaligenes eutrophus strain CH34, an EcoRI-PstI fragment was cloned into plasmid pVDZ'2 and mutations located upstream of cnrC resulted in various phenotypic changes, which resulted in two- to fivefold-increased nickel resistance in both hosts.
