Gene_nameExperimentally Verified Resistance Gene Information Predicted Resistance Gene Information
  • BacMet ID: BAC0385
  • Code for: Enzyme
  • Family: TehB family
  • Sequence: FASTA
  • Cross-database IDs: Link
  • Organism: Escherichia coli (strain K12)
  • Location: Chromosome
  • Compound: Tellurium (Te), Proflavin [class: Acridine]
  • Description: S-adenosyl-L-methionine dependent methyltransferase tehB that catalyzes the methylation of tellurite and is responsible for tellurite resistance when present in high copy number. Can also methylate selenite and selenium dioxide. Is thus able to detoxify different chalcogens. Can not methylate arsenic compounds
  • Length (amino acid): 197
  • Reference: Walter et al 1991; Pubmed- 2060788, Taylor et al. 1994; Pubmed- 8169225
