    ..The results indicate that P15B and P35 are expressed as part of the metY operon, but that some transcriptional read through into the rpsO operon also occurs, thereby, functionally linking the expression of these two complex systems. ..

    ..These data correct a previous misassignment for the gene encoding RNase BN. Based on the fact that the original RNase BN mutation has now been identified, we propose that the elaC gene be renamed rbn.

    ..The possible impact of these suppressor mutations on structure and function are discussed by means of a computationally derived threading model of MsbA...

    ..On the basis of its hydropathy profile, BrkB is predicted to be a cytoplasmic membrane protein. By Southern blot, brk sequences were found in Bordetella bronchiseptica and Bordetella parapertussis but not in Bordetella avium...

    ..On the basis of these data, we suggest that o290 be renamed rbn. Potential homologs of rbn in other organisms also were identified.
  6. Callahan C, Neri Cortes D, Deutscher M. Purification and characterization of the tRNA-processing enzyme RNase BN. J Biol Chem. 2000;275:1030-4 pubmed
    ..However, since tRNA molecules with incorrect residues within the -CCA sequence are not normally produced in E. coli, the role of RNase BN in uninfected cells remains to be determined. ..
