    ..Two open reading frames (ORFs) were found, a 591-bp orfE and a 1467-bp orfF. Based on the sequence, it is suggested that the three mre genes (encoding the murein pathway), mreB, mreC and mreD, and these two ORFs possibly form an operon. ..

    ..In vitro, the coding frames of mreC and mreD produced proteins with Mrs of 40,000 and 15,000, respectively, as judged by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. ..
