|Gene:||ynfF||Accession Numbers: G6846 (MetaCyc), b1588, ECK1583|
Species: Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655
Component of: putative selenate reductase (summary available)
YnfF has been implicated as a Tat-dependent selenate reductase enzyme in E.coli. A ynfEF double null mutant is unable to reduce selenate to elemental selenium [Guymer09]. The disruption is specific to the initial selenate reduction process since selenium production is restored when selenite is added to the growth medium [Guymer09]. Production of either YnfE or YnfF from a plasmid restored the ability of the E. coli ynfEF double mutant to reduce selenate to selenium in vivo [Guymer09].
YnfF is highly similar to DmsA, the catalytic subunit of the dimethyl sulfoxide reductase heterotrimer, and cross-reacts with an anti-DmsA antibody. The protein is poorly expressed. When expressed together with DmsB and DmsC in a plasmid expression system, YnfF can form a complex with DmsB and DmsC, but the chimeric enzyme does not support growth on DMSO [Lubitz03].
The YnfF signal peptide can direct export through the twin arginine translocation (Tat) pathway and the general secretory pathway (Sec) pathway [TullmanErcek07].
YnfF is a predicted molybdoenzyme; deletion of ynfF does not confer a 6-N-hydroxylaminopurine (HAP)-sensitive phenotype [Kozmin07].

Subunit composition of
putative selenate reductase = [YnfE][YnfF][YnfG][YnfH]

oxidoreductase, predicted membrane anchor subunit = YnfH (summary available)
On the basis of sequence similarity the ynfEFGH operon was predicted to encode an oxidoreductase complex closely related to DMSO reductase. A strain carrying a deletion of dmsABC and containing ynfFGH on a multicopy plasmid is able to grow poorly under anaerobic conditions utilizing dimethyl sulfoxide as a terminal oxidant [Lubitz03]. More recently, genetic analysis of E.coli ynfE and ynfF null mutants suggests these proteins are Tat-targeted selenate reductases [Guymer09]. E.coli ubiE and menA null mutants are unable to reduce selenate to elemental red selenium in vivo thus implicating menaquinone in the reductase activity [Guymer09].
