Gene_nameExperimentally Verified Resistance Gene Information Predicted Resistance Gene Information
  • BacMet ID: BAC0497
  • Code for: Binding protein
  • Family: Ferritin family
  • Sequence: FASTA
  • Cross-database IDs: Link
  • Organism: Helicobacter pylori
  • Location: Chromosome
  • Compound: Iron (Fe), Copper (Cu), Manganese (Mn)
  • Description: pfr gene encodes ferritin protein. Has role in iron metabolism of H. pylori. Binding and sequestration of metals by Pfr is not specific for iron. Iron resistance mediated by ferritin might be important for survival of the pathogen within its natural habitat, where it is faced with iron and other metals which originate from the diet.
  • Length (amino acid): 167
