IpdB2 - CoA-transferase beta subunit
EN
The gene ipdB2 (REQ_00860) is an paralog of idpB of Rhodococcus equi but is localized outside of the cholesterol catabolic gene cluster on the bacterial chromosome. Probably it is the beta subunit of a heterodimeric coenzyme A transferase. The biological function is not elucidated yet but it was shown that the gene product IpdB2 (GenBank accession CBH46239) acts redundantly to IdpB in the cholesterol catabolism that is important for pathogenicity of R. equi.
