High impact information on rubB

  • We demonstrate here that single base pair substitutions in rubA or rubB lead to defects in alkane degradation, showing that both genes are essential for alkane utilization [1].


  1. The genes rubA and rubB for alkane degradation in Acinetobacter sp. strain ADP1 are in an operon with estB, encoding an esterase, and oxyR. Geissdörfer, W., Kok, R.G., Ratajczak, A., Hellingwerf, K.J., Hillen, W. J. Bacteriol. (1999) [Pubmed]
