Abstract

The Escherichia coli entE gene encodes a polypeptide necessary in the latter stages of biosynthesis of the siderophore enterobactin. The entE gene and adjacent DNA were sequenced. The predicted EntE polypeptide consists of 536 amino acids and has a Mr of 58,299 and a net charge of -7.33. Genetic evidence combined with this and previous sequencing data indicate that the genes entCEB(G)A are transcribed as unit from a promoter upstream of entC.
