Completion of the Nucleotide Sequence of the 'Maltose B' Region in Salmonella Typhimurium: The High Conservation of the malM Gene Suggests a Selected Physiological Role for Its Product

Biochim Biophys Acta. 1992 Jan 6;1129(2):223-7. doi: 10.1016/0167-4781(92)90492-i.


We have subcloned and sequenced the genes malF and malM of Salmonella typhimurium, thereby completing the determination of the nucleotide sequence of its 'maltose B' regulon. The malM gene, encoding a periplasmic protein of unknown function in Escherichia coli, is a highly conserved as genes encoding proteins of known function from the same region.
