Genome Property Definition Page

Namecopper resistance system: CopZA
DescriptionThis genome property (under development) includes a P-type ATPase copper transporter, a copper response regulatory protein and a copper chaperone. Copper is a cofactor in some enzymes and is reportedly essential in all living organisms, but too much copper can be toxic. A copper response operon may include two copper transporters to achieve copper homeostatis and include efflux capability. Different copper transport systems rely on transporters of other types.
