Disease relevance of menB

  • A photosystem I (PS I) complex containing plastoquinone-9 (PQ-9) but devoid of F(X), F(B), and F(A) was isolated and characterized from a mutant strain of Synechococcus sp. PCC 7002 in which the menB and rubA genes were insertionally inactivated [1].
  • Interruption of the phylloquinone (PhQ) biosynthetic pathway by interposon mutagenesis of the menA and menB genes in Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 results in plastoquinone-9 (PQ-9) occupying the A(1) site and functioning in electron transfer from A(0) to the FeS clusters in photosystem (PS) I (Johnson, T [2].
