Disease relevance of ziaA

  • ORF slr0798, now designated ziaA, from Synechocystis PCC 6803 encodes a polypeptide with sequence features of heavy metal transporting P-type ATPases [1].
  • Increased Zn2+ tolerance and reduced 65Zn accumulation was observed in Synechococcus PCC 7942, strain R2-PIM8(smt), containing ziaA and upstream regulatory sequences, compared with control cells [1].

High impact information on ziaA

  • Nucleotide sequences upstream of ziaA, fused to a promoterless lacZ gene, conferred Zn2+-dependent beta-galactosidase activity when introduced into R2-PIM8(smt) [1].
  • Reporter gene constructs lacking ziaR conferred elevated Zn2+-independent expression from the ziaA operator-promoter in R2-PIM8(smt) [1].
