Nucleotide Sequence of the Ethidium Efflux Gene From Escherichia Coli

FEMS Microbiol Lett. 1991 Aug 1;66(2):229-31. doi: 10.1016/0378-1097(91)90338-b.

Abstract

The nucleotide sequence of the gene specifying the ethidium efflux system of Escherichia coli has been determined. The translated open reading frame has identified a membrane-bound polypeptide of 110 amino acids (11,960 Da) which shares 42% identity with a staphylococcal protein specifying resistance to ethidium.
