BacMet ID: BAC0495Code for: Unknown
Family: RND superfamilySequence: FASTA
Cross-database IDs: Link
Organism: Klebsiella pneumoniae LM21Location: Chromosome
Compound: Hydrochloric acid (HCl) [class: Acid]Description: Part of eefXABC operon in K. pneumoniae. This gene is absent in the similar efflux system eefABC in other bacteria (such as Enterobacter aerogenes). Comaparative study suggests that it could be a regulator of the EefABC tripartite efflux system. The tripartite efflux system confers measurable ecological benefits in K. pneumoniae with high competition potential on surviving in inorganic acid environments.
