High impact information on shuS

  • At low heme concentrations, the shuS mutant grew slowly and its growth was stimulated by either increasing the heme concentration or by providing extra copies of the heme receptor shuA on a plasmid [1].
 

Other interactions of shuS

  • The shuS gene is located within the heme transport locus, downstream of the heme receptor gene shuA [1].
