Disease relevance of mutX

  • The mutX gene of Streptococcus pneumoniae, a homologue of the Escherichia coli mutT mutator gene (Méjean, V., Salles, C., Bullions, L. C., Bessman, M. J., and Claverys, J.-P. (1993) Mol. Microbiol. 11, 323-330) has been cloned into an expression vector, and its gene product, the MutX protein, has been purified to apparent homogeneity [1].
  • Nucleotide sequence determination reveals that the mutX gene encodes a 17,870 Da protein (154 residues) which exhibits significant homology with the MutT protein of Escherichia coli, a nucleoside triphosphatase (dGTP pyrophosphohydrolase) [2].
