Disease relevance of chbC


High impact information on chbC

  • The celA gene encodes a 257-amino-acid protein, while celB encodes a 274-amino-acid protein [1].
  • Induced expression levels of luc, cat, and celB from Pm were found to be comparable to or higher than those from the Ptrc and PT7 promoters located on high copy number plasmids [2].
