Gene_nameExperimentally Verified Resistance Gene Information Predicted Resistance Gene Information
  • BacMet ID: BAC0459
  • Code for: Efflux
  • Family: Cation diffusion facilitator (CDF) transporter family
  • Sequence: FASTA
  • Cross-database IDs: Link
  • Organism: Escherichia coli (strain K12)
  • Location: Chromosome
  • Compound: Zinc (Zn)
  • Description: Zinc transporter ZitB; Involved in zinc efflux across the cytoplasmic membrane, thus reducing zinc accumulation in the cytoplasm and rendering bacteria more resistant to zinc; contributes to Zn++ haemostatis at low (non-toxic) concentrations; Appears to be selective for zinc, not conferring resistance to cobalt nor cadmium
  • Length (amino acid): 313
  • Reference: Grass et al. 2001; Pubmed- 11443104, Lee et al. 2002; Pubmed- 12399046
