Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Enzyme: regulator of KefC-mediated potassium transport and quinone oxidoreductase
Inferred from experiment




Gene: kefF Accession Numbers: EG11568 (EcoCyc), b0046, ECK0047

Synonyms: yabF

Regulation Summary Diagram

Regulation summary diagram for kefF

Subunit composition of regulator of KefC-mediated potassium transport and quinone oxidoreductase = [KefF]2
         regulator of KefC-mediated potassium transport and quinone oxidoreductase = KefF

Summary:
KefF is an activator of potassium transport mediated by the KefC antiporter [Miller00b, Fujisawa07]. KefF also has enzymatic activity as a quinone oxidoreductase, thereby apparently reducing the redox toxicity of electrophilic quinones. This enzymatic activity of KefF is not required for its function as an activator of KefC [Lyngberg11]. NAD(P)H dehydrogenase activity of KefF was predicted based on sequence similarity [Reed03].

Crystal structures of an artificially constructed KefF fusion with the C-terminal domain of KefC have been solved [Roosild09, Roosild10]. KefF may exert its effect on the activity of KefC by influencing the angle of KefC's hinge domain [Roosild09].

A kefF mutant exhibits a defect in KefC-mediated potassium transport [Miller00b].

Expression in E. coli of a yabF gene of environmental origin results in carbonyl biosynthesis from polyols [Knietsch03].
