  • a ''[gene|472E3A2407C83EEE26DB00079D185C4EA2988611|mgtE]'' mutant has a growth defect on rich media, this can be suppressed by the addition of 25 mM Mg2+, moreover the mutant grows well on minimal medium in the presence of citrate (due to the activity of [protein|C0DED68802EF78D2BC16507234AAC3B60D236E68|CitM]) [Pubmed|24415722]
