Use of an antisense RNA strategy to investigate the functional significance of Mn-catalase in the extreme thermophile Thermus thermophilus
2004 (English)In: Journal of Bacteriology, ISSN 0021-9193, E-ISSN 1098-5530, Vol. 186, no 22, 7804-7806 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The expression of an antisense RNA revealed that an Mn-catalase was required in Thermus thermophilus for aerobic but not for anaerobic growth. The antisense system is based on the constitutive expression of a "bicistronic" transcript consisting of the kanamycin resistance gene mRNA followed by the antisense RNA against the selected target.
