Abstract:
Resistance to cobalt, zinc, and cadmium specified by the czc determinant on plasmid pMOL30 in Alcaligenes eutrophus results from a cation efflux system. Five membrane-bound polypeptides that were expressed in Escherichia coli from this determinant under the control of a phage T7 promoter were assigned to four open reading frames identified in the nucleotide sequence of the 6881-base-pair fragment containing the czc putative operon. The contributions of the polypeptides to the cation efflux system were analyzed with deletion derivatives of the 6.9-kilobase fragment, constructed, and expressed in E. coli under the control of the phage T7 promoter and in A. eutrophus under the control of the lac promoter.
