  1. Jackowski S, Alix J. Cloning, sequence, and expression of the pantothenate permease (panF) gene of Escherichia coli. J Bacteriol. 1990;172:3842-8 pubmed
    Pantothenate permease, the product of the panF gene, catalyzes the sodium-dependent uptake of extracellular pantothenate. The panF gene was isolated from an Escherichia coli genomic DNA library and subcloned into multicopy plasmids...

    Genetic complementation and enzyme assays have shown that the DNA region between panF, which encodes pantothenate permease, and orf1, the first gene of the fis operon, encodes prmA, the genetic determinant for the ribosomal protein L11 ..
