Abstract

Using a variety of techniques the distribution of the glutathione-regulated KefC K-transport system among bacterial species was investigated. The presence of similar systems in a number of Gram-negative bacteria was demonstrated. In contrast, the system appeared to be absent from most Gram-positive bacteria tested with the exception of . Using the cloned gene as a probe for Southern hybridization it was shown that only limited DNA sequence homology exists with other bacteria, even when closely related members of the enteric group were examined.
