A second key gene of dissimilatory sulfate reduction, dsrAB, codes for the alpha and beta sub-units of the enzyme dissimilatory sulfite reductase, which catalyzes the reduction of sulfite to sulfide (Wagner et al.
Multiple lateral transfers of dissimilatory sulfite reductase genes between major lineages of sulfate-reducing prokaryotes.
1998 Phylogeny of dissimilatory sulfite reductases supports an early origin of sulfate respiration.
1:45 RECOMBINANT EXPRESSION OF SULFITE REDUCTASE FROM ARABIDOPSIS THALIANA
A major constituent of plastid nucleoids is sulfite reductase (SiR), a siroheme enzyme that also participates in the sulfur assimilation pathway.
ANALYSIS OF KNOCKOUT LINES FOR INSERTION MUTANTS IN THE SULFITE REDUCTASE GENE OF APABIDOPSIS THALIANA
2:45 IDENTIFICATION OF THE CHLOROPLAST NUCLEOID PROTEIN, DCP68, AS A SULFITE REDUCTASE
The association of DCP68 with the nucleoid has been confirmed by in organello formaldehyde cross-linking of protein/DNA complexes and immuno-colocalization using antibodies against recombinant sulfite reductase from Arabidopsis thaliana.
Plant sulfite reductase cDNA sequences were used to design primers for the isol ation and amplification of the cDNA of the soybean sulfite reductase.
