Cloning and analysis of a locus (mcr) involved in mitomycin C resistance in Streptomyces lavendulae.

By P. R. August, M. C. Flickinger and D. H. Sherman


Two genes (mcrA and mcrB) from Streptomyces lavendulae that together confer resistance to mitomycin C were identified. This DNA appears to comprise a polycistronic operon with a drug-inducible leaderless mRNA. The deduced amino acid sequence of mcrA shows similarity to sequences of a special class of bacterial, plant, and animal oxygen oxidoreductases
