2.A.1.32.3
Putative copper/multidrug efflux protein, YfmO.  The yfmPO operon is autoregulated by the MerR homologue, YfmP (a repressor). The copZA operon encodes CopA, a copper ATPase (TC# 3.A.3.5.18) which is induced by a copper dependent mechanism. Since a yfmP null mutant had poor copZA induction but elevated levels of the YfmO efflux pump, YfmO could catalyze copper efflux and be responsible for reduced copZA induction. Consistent with this model, a yfmP yfmO double mutant showed normal induction by copper (Gaballa et al. 2003).
