071 - Two open reading frames (ORFs) identified near the hydrogenase structural genes in Azotobacter vinelandii, the first ORF may encode for a polypeptide similar to rubredoxins

This study looked at the genetics of the two open reading frames (ORFs) near the hydrogenase structural genes (hoxZM).

What They Saw
They sequenced the ORFs and compared to known genes. hoxZ seemed to have most homology with genes encoding proteins called rubredoxin from other species. These are typically small proteins that play roles in electron transport, which makes sense. And that's all.
