afuB is homologous to an iron-uptake system gene in Actinobacillus. afuB'(fbpA') matches the last 116 aa of an intact afuB allele in O157:H7, 692 aa Z0459 (Q8X5J2). afuB is truncated by IS1B. InterPro used the gene name fbpB for afuB, but there is already an fbp gene in K-12; additional fbp genes with different mnemonics are discouraged.
