Gene_nameExperimentally Verified Resistance Gene Information Predicted Resistance Gene Information
  • BacMet ID: BAC0134
  • Code for: Binding protein
  • Family: Dps famaily
  • Sequence: FASTA
  • Cross-database IDs: Link
  • Organism: Streptococcus suis
  • Location: Chromosome
  • Compound: Iron (Fe), Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) [class: Peroxides]
  • Description: DNA protection during starvation protein; Protects DNA from oxidative damage by sequestering intracellular Fe2+ ion and storing it in the form of Fe3+ oxyhydroxide mineral. One hydrogen peroxide oxidizes two Fe2+ ions, which prevents hydroxyl radical production by the Fenton reaction. It binds and incorporates Fe2+ iron. Is responsible for hydrogen peroxide resistance. Does not bind DNA.
  • Length (amino acid): 172
