Abstract

The mscL gene, which encodes the protein forming a large-conductance mechanosensitive channel (MscL) in Escherichia coli, has previously been cloned and sequenced by Sukharev et al. [Nature 368 (1994) 265-268]. We found a gene homologous to mscL in Clostridium perfringens which is located just downstream from the collagenase-encoding gene in the opposite direction.
