BacMet ID: BAC0497Code for: Binding protein
Family: Ferritin familySequence: FASTA
Cross-database IDs: Link
Organism: Helicobacter pyloriLocation: 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
