Disease relevance of cadB


Biological context of cadB

  • Deletion analysis of the upstream region and cloning of various fragments to make cadA::lacZ or cadB::lacZ protein fusions or operon fusions showed that cadA was translated more efficiently than cadB and localized the pH-responsive site to a region near an upstream EcoRV site [2].

Other interactions of cadB

  • One of these, cadB, is 444 codons long and is situated immediately upstream of cadA [3].
