An azoR deletion mutant confers sensitivity to thiol-specific stress induced by external electrophilic quinones (Liu, 2009). AzoR was identifed by N-terminal sequencing in an acyl carrier protein phosphodiesterase preparation and mistaken for the acpD gene. The real acpD gene has been identified (yajB) and renamed acpH. PDB 1TIK is mislabeled as a ACP phosphodiesterase.
