Disease relevance of magA


High impact information on magA

  • We constructed plasmids pKML and pNELM, respectively, by fusing luc to the 5' and 3' terminal of magA, encoding an integral iron translocating protein situated in the BMP membrane, of AMB-1 [2].
  • The transcription of magA was regulated immediately before and after cell division [3].
