Nameintracellular sulfur oxidation
DescriptionThis system, usually associated with the dissimatory sulfite reductase (dsr) locus, includes proteins DsrE, DsrF, DshH, and DsrC, which are small, soluble proteins required for the oxidation of intracellular sulfur.
JCVI RoleSulfur metabolism
Parent PropertyGenProp0196: sulfur metabolism
