Molybdenum cofactor biosynthesis in Escherichia coli mod and mog mutants.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The molybdopterin content of Escherichia coli mod and mog mutants was estimated by conversion to the form A derivative. The results are in accord with complete phenotypic repair of mod, and incomplete repair of mog, by culture in high concentrations of molybdate. A possible role for Mog as a molybdochelatase is discussed.
