Pan proteomei This proteome is part of the Enterococcus hirae ATCC 9790 pan proteome (fasta)

Enterococcus hirae has been used as a model organism for more than 4 decades. It has been used to address fundamental questions, such as the bioenergetics of ion transport, the action of uncouplers and ionophores, the identification of penicillin-binding proteins, the mechanism of autolysis, and bacterial copper homeostasis. Over these 4 decade it has changed from Streptococcus faecalis to Streptococcus faecium, and finally to Enterococcus hirae, and as a consequence some of the early work with the this strain, the type strain, ATCC 9790, is difficult to track. It is microaerophilic and non-motile. Enterococcus hirae can be isolated from domestic birds, as well as pig, human and cattle sources. It is rarely found in clinical specimens (adapted from PMID 22933757).
