Abstract

The genes are located upstream of the gene cluster encoding the sulfur-oxidizing ability of . SoxV is highly homologous to CcdA, which is involved in cytochrome maturation of . SoxV was shown to function in reduction of the periplasmic SoxW, which shows a CysXaaXaaCys motif characteristic for thioredoxins. From strain GBΩV, which carries an Ω-kanamycin-resistance-encoding interposon in , and complementation analysis it was evident that SoxV but not the periplasmic SoxW was essential for lithoautotrophic growth of with thiosulfate. However, the thiosulfate-oxidizing activities of cell extracts from the wild-type and from strain GBΩV were similar, demonstrating that the low thiosulfate-oxidizing activity of strain GBΩV was not due to a defect in biosynthesis or maturation of proteins of the Sox system and suggesting that SoxV is part of a regulatory or catalytic system of the Sox system. Analysis of DNA sequences available from different organisms harbouring a Sox system revealed that genes are exclusively present in operons harbouring the genes, encoding sulfur dehydrogenase, suggesting that SoxCD might be a redox partner of SoxV. No complementation of the mutant TP43 defective in cytochrome maturation was achieved by expression of , demonstrating that the high identity of SoxV and CcdA does not correspond to functional homology.
