Abstract

Nickel, like other transition metals, can be toxic to cells even at moderate concentration (low microM range) by displacing essential metals from their native binding sites or by generating reactive oxygen species that cause oxidative DNA damage. For this reason, cells have evolved mechanisms to deal with excess nickel. Efflux systems include members of the Resistance-Nodulation-cell Division (RND) protein family, P-type ATPases, cation diffusion facilitators (CDF) and other resistance factors. Nickel-specific exporters have been characterized in Cupravidus metallidurans, Helicobacter pylori, Achromobacter xylosoxidans, Serratia marcenses and Escherichia coli.
