Enterococcus faecalis V583 contains a cytochrome bd-type respiratory oxidase

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We have cloned an Enterococcus faecalis gene cluster, cydABCD, which when expressed in Bacillus subtilis results in a functional cytochrome bd terminal oxidase. Our results indicate that E. faecalis V583 cells have the capacity of aerobic respiration when grown in the presence of heme.
