Chemical compound and disease context of mog


Biological context of mog

  • Such insertions also resulted in a Chlr and Pho- phenotype when the plasmid was in a delta (dye- chlG -phoM) phoR strain, although complementation tests suggested that the phoM+ and chlG + genes were still intact [7].

Associations of mog with chemical compounds

  • None of the other known pleiotropic chlorate resistance loci (chlD, chlG) are required for the expression of its activity [5].
  • The biotin sulfoxide reductase deficiency of a chlG, mutant is partially reversed by the addition of 10 mM molybdate to the growth medium [8].
