- ... A gene, mf1, encoding a novel cholinephosphotransferase in glycoglycerophospholipid (GGPL) biosynthesis of Mycoplasma fermentans PG18 was identified by genomic analysis, cloned, and expressed in Escherichia coli. The mf1 gene comprises an open reading frame of 777 bp encoding 258 amino acids. The mf1 gene product, Mf1, has 23% amino acid homology with LicD of Haemophilus influenzae but no homology ...
