Characterization of an iron-dependent regulatory protein (IdeR) of Mycobacterium tuberculosis as a functional homolog of the diphtheria toxin repressor (DtxR) from Corynebacterium diphtheriae



Characterization of an iron-dependent regulatory protein (IdeR) of Mycobacterium tuberculosis as a functional homolog of the diphtheria toxin repressor (DtxR) from Corynebacterium diphtheriae



Infection and Immunity 63(11): 4284-4289



The DtxR protein from Corynebacterium diphtheriae is an iron-dependent repressor that regulates transcription from the tox, IRP1, and IRP2 promoters. A gene from virulent Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv was recently shown to encode a protein, here designated iron-dependent regulator (IdeR), that is almost 60% homologous to DtxR from C. diphtheriae. A 750-bp PCR-derived DNA fragment carrying the M. tuberculosis ideR allele was subcloned to both high- and low-copy-number vectors.
