The cmpABCD operon of the cyanobacterium Synechococcus sp. strain PCC 7942 encodes an ATP-binding cassette transporter involved in HCO3- uptake. The three genes, cmpBCD, encode membrane components of an ATP-binding cassette transporter, whereas cmpA encodes a 42-kDa cytoplasmic membrane protein, which is 46.5% identical to the membrane-anchored substrate-binding protein of the nitrate/nitrite transporter. Equilibrium dialysis analysis using H14CO3- showed that a truncated CmpA protein lacking...[Show more]
