"HemZ is a predicted ferrochelatase which ties in an apparent operon with two genes involved in mycolic, acid biosynthesis, mabA and inhA."
"We tried to construct hemZ deletion mutants in M. tuberculosis using a two-step recombination strategy, but could only delete the chromosomal copy when we provided a...
