    The glucuronide transporter GusB, the product of the gusB gene from Escherichia coli, is responsible for detoxification of metabolites. In this study, we successfully expressed GusB homologously in E...

    ..There are several biological systems in which uidA-encoded beta-glucuronidase may be an attractive alternative or complement to previously described gene-fusion markers such as beta-galactosidase or chloramphenicol acetyltransferase. ..

    Two genes, gusB and gusC, from a natural fecal isolate of Escherichia coli are shown to encode proteins responsible for transport of beta-glucuronides with synthetic [(14)C]phenyl-1-thio-beta-d-glucuronide as the substrate...
